Just days after its initial announcement, Grimes has released her new Miss Anthropocene remix album. Stream Miss Anthropocene Rave Edition below via Apple Music and Spotify.
As its title suggests, the new collection finds Grimes’ original Miss Anthropocene album — one of our faves of 2020 — reworked for the club atmosphere. The 11-track effort includes remixes from pop producer and longtime associate BloodPop (Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber) and hip-hop artist Channel Tres. The bulk of the project, however, comes courtesy of veteran dance music producers like Modeselektor and techno/tech-house purveyors Richie Hawtin, Tale of Us, and ANNA.
For those well acquainted with Miss Anthropocene, which folded in elements of “techno-pop” as well as aggressive industrial music, a remix record of this variety shouldn’t come as a big surprise. In fact, it just might be an indication of where her music is headed.
Earlier this month, Grimes revealed a new album cover for Miss Anthropocene. The experimental pop musician also shared a song titled “Delicate Weapon”, which she wrote for the Cyberpunk 2077 soundtrack. In October, she created lullaby music using artificial intelligence.
