New: Grimes – REALiTi [Official Video]

:: Absolutely amazing. And highly addictive.

Canadian indie-pop artist Claire Boucher, better known as Grimes, has returned with gorgeous new track REALiTi and an accompanying music video.

The clip is directed and edited by Grimes with photography by Mac Boucher – watch/listen above. The footage was shot during Grimes tour through Asia exactly two years ago. She’s now releasing it as a special gift to everyone who came out to the shows back than since it’s now longer gonna be on the [upcoming] album. Interestingly, she calls the latter “the lost album” (read below), creating kind of a myth around the set of songs which she had – readily recorded – scrapped last autumn after first single Go had deeply divided her fans.

The music is written, produced and performed by Grimes. On her Youtube, she explains:

This song was never finished. its a demo from ~ the lost album ~, recorded early 2013. i lost the ableton file, so its not mixed or mastered. i tried to doctor the mp3 into a listenable state, but it was poorly recorded in the first place and never meant to be heard by anyone, so its a bit of a mess haha.
