Grimes Teases Upcoming Album
During the past couple of months, the 30-year-old Canadian singer has been teasing new music via her social media accounts. She also replied to one of her fans and said that her new album is highly collaborative.
In February, Grimes confirmed that her new music project will be out at the end of the year. She also told her supporters that she has been spending so much time in the studio to give them good music.
"In the studio every day trying to legit make something you've never heard before. Unexplored sonic landscapes. I need another month or 2 of pure unadulterated creativity at which point I will begin finishing tracks. Won't let you down," wrote Grimes.
The singer's upcoming album will serve as a follow-up to her 2015 compilation Art Angels. The songs featured on the album are "laughing and not being normal," "California," "SCREAM," "Flesh without Blood," "Belly of the Beat," "Kill V. Maim," "Artangels," "Easily," "Pin," "Realiti," "World Princess part II," "Venus Fly," "Life in the Vivid Dream," and "Butterfly."
Grimes was most recently heard on Janelle Monáe's Dirty Computer album. The two female singers collaborated on "PYNK."
Poppy's Debut Album
Poppy, on the other hand, rose to fame through her unique YouTube videos. One of her most famous clips was a video of her saying her name again and again for 10 minutes. The 23-year-old artist's real name is Moriah Pereira, and Poppy is just her stage persona.
In October of last year, she released her debut album Poppy.Computer. The songs included in the compilation are "I'm Poppy," "Let's Make A Video," "Bleach Blonde Baby," "My Microphone," "Moshi Moshi," "Computer Boy," "My Style" (feat. Charlotte), "Fuzzy," "Interweb," "Software Upgrade," and "Pop Music."
Prior to the release of her album, Poppy described Poppy.Computer as an album filled with pop tunes.
"Popular music has been diluted to a point where quantity prevails over quality and I wanted to do my best to preserve and reignite the things about pop that made it so special in the first place," said Poppy.
