Grimes has just put out a ‘Nightcore’ reimagining of her and HANA’s ‘We Appreciate Power’.
For those unfamiliar with it, the meme-friendly genre is characterised by its chipmunk vocals and sped-up sound, named after a Norwegian DJ duo from the early 2000s.
The original has been pitch-shifted and the tempo raised, resulting in a high-speed, saccharine rework.
Writing on Twitter, Grimes also announced that she’d been working on a fantasy novel instead of completing her follow-up to 2015’s ‘Art Angels’:
It centers around lesbian romance between a demon named War and an angel named Peace.. Set in a biological simulation run by AI ‘gods’. Pop stars r human-ai hybrid ‘angels’ (art angels) who are the tether between the gods (who are generating/play in the sim/game) & human “npc’s”
