Grimes has shared “Delete Forever,” the latest track off of her forthcoming album Miss Anthropocene, which drops on February 21st.
“It’s a pretty bummer song,” Grimes explains to Zane Lowe on Apple Beats 1. “I’m so bad at talking about this song. I guess it’s kind of about the opioid epidemic…I’ve had quite a few friends pass away, in particular, one friend when I was 18 passed away from complications related to opioid addiction. Artists keep dying and stuff so I wrote this song on the night Lil Peep died.”
Unlike most of Grimes’ other tracks, “Delete Forever” is the closest to acoustic you’ll get with Grimes, primarily built around guitar chords.
