Grimes has shared a new single with us called ‘Delicate Weapon’. She joins the hectic soundtrack for the new video game Cyberpunk 2077.
A$AP Rocky’s song was discovered by fans in the game, but is yet to be acknowledged properly. It’s working title from fans is ‘Flacko Lacko’.
Grimes actually has two songs in the game. ‘4ÆM’ came as part of the soundtrack’s first instalment’. ‘Delicate Weapon’ comes as part of the second announcement.
It’s a cool throwback to the ‘Cry’ artist’s early days, airy alt-pop songs. The song shows off the artist’s floaty vocals juxtaposed with dark and brooding synth sounds.
She’s had a big year. She gave birth to her and Elon Musk’s baby, originally named X Æ A-12.
The baby’s name was soon updated to X AE A-XII, as the initial spelling was illegal in the state of California.
She also auctioned her soul at an Art Exhibition.
On top of all of that, Grimes also released an album this year. Miss Anthropocene was released in February.
It made our 20 Best Albums of 2020, So Far list back in July.
“Miss Anthropocene is as meme-able as it is magnificent but demonstrates a more subdued side to her usually explosive take on electronic and pop,” we wrote on the release.
A huge 2020 indeed.
