Después del estreno del demo «Pretty Dark» la semana pasada, Grimes anunció hoy la salida de su próximo disco. A través de un posteo en Instagram, la canadiense reveló que su quinto disco se llamará Miss_Anthropocene y que es «un álbum conceptual sobre la la diosa antropomórfica del cambio climático».

Aunque no confirmó una fecha de salida, la artista adelantó que «cada canción será una encarnación distinta de la extinción humana representada a través de una estrella pop demonológica».

Dentro de las canciones que formarán parte de Miss_Anthropocene, sabemos que estará «We Appreciate Power«, su canción junto a HANA en la que aborda la inteligencia artificial como una amenaza para la humanidad. Fue publicada en noviembre pasado.

En el mismo comunicado, Claire Boucher cuenta que posiblemente publique «un EP o algunos singles más» antes del esperado sucesor de Art Angels (2015).

Mientras esperamos detalles del lanzamiento, volvemos a escuchar «Pretty Dark«, canción que formará parte de un musical en realidad aumentada en el que se encuentra trabajando la canadiense:

New Album: Grimes – Miss_Anthrop0cene 1.  mis·an·thrope noun:  a person who dislikes humankind and avoids human society. 2.  Anthropocene:  The Anthropocene is a proposed epoch dating from the commencement of significant human impact on the Earth’s Geology and ecosystems including, but not limited to, anthropogenic climate change. ———————————— Just fount out my first interview in a few years is coming out tomorrow. I thought the writer was quite smart so hopefully it’s accurate haha. But just in case (cuz I’ve had some p fucked press drama this year) I’m announcing album here first: ———————————-??It’s called Miss_Anthropocene. It’s a concept album about the anthropomorphic Goddess of climate Change: A psychedelic, space-dwelling demon/ beauty-Queen who relishes the end of the world. She’s composed of Ivory and Oil (I’ve done some illustrations of her if you scroll down my instagram). ———————————-????? I love Godly personifications of abstract/ horrific concepts (For example, Mars as the Roman God of War) — so I wanted to update the list to include our modern issues. ———————————-?? Each song will be a different embodiment of human extinction as depicted through a Pop star Demonology. The first song ‘we appreciate power’, introduced the pro-AI-propaganda girl group who embody our potential enslavement/destruction at the hands of Artificial General intelligence. ———————————-?? It’s possible I will drop an EP or a few more singles of synth-based stuff b4 the album because its mostly ethereal nu metal (ish), and I know a lot of ppl miss the synths and whatnot. ———————————- ??Climate change is something I’m only ever confronted with in a sad/ guilty way…. Reading news and what not… so my goal is to make climate change fun (lol..??)…. uhhh… (I mean, everybody loves a good villain… re: the joker, Queen Beryl).. so maybe it’ll be a bit easier to look at if it can exist as a character and not just abstract doom. ———————————-???? More musique soon! <3
