Grimes (aka Claire Boucher) has shared a video for a new demo, "Pretty Dark," which she stresses is not a single and is not taken from her forthcoming new album. Watch it below.

Grimes posted the somewhat rambling statement about the song and video on its YouTube page:

"NOT A SINGLE lol

just a demo. This is from an AR musical im working on (AKA NOT THE ALBUM/ NOT OFFICIAL GRIMES MUSIC//////)

made the song and video yesterday so obvs majorly rough,

but while im finishing my album im just gonna start casually dropping stuff as I see fit. Been doing this exercise where I try to write and produce a whole song in like ~1-2 hrs... fuck technical proficiency and whatnot.

**** Also,

so gna start making AR (or illustrated?) 'sub-members' within Grimes (The art angels, as it were lol). (Kinda like the Loona sub-bands X the Gorillaz?...

..psychedelic post k pop-ish fake band for my non-Grimes musical ventures)

_They are the main characters from the book/ musical im working on.. (AKA im bored of being so precious abt music and also feeling boxed in by the Grimes branding and I have this whole other world that's rly fun to write for..

So I'll save big singles and things for Grimes and casually release music more often as the AR band. )

PS... This is not her final look... but this character is named Dark."

Last year Grimes shared a brand new song for our future AI overlords, "We Appreciate Power," via a lyric video for the track, and also stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to perform the song (where she was joined by HANA, who is featured on the song). "We Appreciate Power" was written, produced, and performed by Grimes, and is available digitally now via 4AD. It was said to be the first track from her forthcoming fifth album, the follow-up to 2015's Art Angels.
