Listen: Grimes - “Go” (Demo)

Original (Possibly) Version

Dec 02, 2014 Bookmark and Share


Earlier this year Grimes released "Go," a track that left many fans divided—so much so that singer/songwriter Claire Boucher wound up scrapping what was to be the original follow-up to her 2012 breakthrough Visions. Regardless of what anyone thinks about the song and the musical direction it seemed to portend, Boucher shared an early demo of the track online.

Writing on her Tumblr, Boucher says, "james just sent me this weird demo of go, considering the wackiness of the breakdown i assume this is the orig demo cuz we were extremely caffeinated that day. in any case i dunno if its particularly different from the ‘final version' but im always interested in hearing demo versions of things so i figured yall mite b. i think we mighta mixed a bit of the soul out of it in retrospect, i appreciate the absurdity of mike's 2nd drop, the thicker snares in the intro etc. its a bit more crowded. also these are demo vocals for songwriting purposes only and they suck a lot so dont mind them. ** also have no idea how this leaked but it doesn't seem to hurt anything that it exists."
