Watch Grimes Debut ‘Go’, The Song She Wrote For Rihanna

Canadian electronic impressionist Grimes debuted three new tracks during her performance at the Governors Ball festival in New York over the weekend. Among the new compositions was Go, a track that Grimes revealed she originally co-wrote with LA producer Blood Diamonds for Rihanna.

“Also for those at gov ball, u should stick around for my final song because its special & top secret & new, actually im playin 3 new songs,” Grimes tweeted, “but the last song is one me and [Blood Diamonds] wrote for Rihanna but they turned it down it so its kinda different from regular Grimes.”

The track is indeed a departure from the producer’s often ethereal and chilled out tracks, featuring glitchy dubstep passages and a slick R&B-style verse. The three new tracks — Go, David, and Sleepwalking — were played between a cover of Blood Diamonds’ Phone Sex and cuts from Grimes’ last studio album, Visions, which she said have been “re-recorded and reproduced.”

As NME reports, the producer recently hinted that the follow-up to 2012’s Visions will be released this September. The album will be her first since signing with Jay-Z‘s Roc Nation management — the same company that handles Rihanna — which she described as like “[joining] the X-Men.”
