Canadian musician and singer Grimes has released her new song, “Player of Games.” The new song follows “Love,” which the singer released via her Instagram account on September 30.
The new single is believed to be a track off Grimes’ forthcoming sixth studio album, expected to be released in 2022. The album will be a follow-up to Miss Anthropocene, which was released in 2020.
The 33-year-old had also teased ‘Shinigami Eyes’ on Discord in June, as well as ‘100 Percent Tragedy’ – which she claims is about “having to defeat Azealia Banks when she tried to destroy my life.”
Born Claire Elise Boucher, Grimes started producing music when she learned the program Logic for her neuroscience class. Shortly after that, she had a viral myspace page, which allowed her to start booking shows and focus full-time on music.
Grimes lived in a crack den In Montreal with no heat (where she got frostbite twice and her neighbor was bludgeoned to death in the hallway), playing raves until her 2012 breakout, Visions, recorded during a 2-week speed binge wherein she did not leave her bedroom. Upon the success of this album, Grimes attempted to enter society as a regular human, which has clearly not gone super well but has nonetheless been entertaining.
She’s since become an award-winning music video director and a music composer, producer, engineer, and singer-songwriter. She’s toured globally to sold-out crowds, headlined festivals and is now moving into the space of corporate surrealism. Listen to Player of Games below.
