Vancouver musician Grimes sat down with the folks at DAZED recently for an interview, and in the conversation, reveals that her album is dropping in October. She describes the new direction she is taking with the LP, how it focuses more on political issues and is less abstract than her previous material. She feels that because she was more “in society” during the album’s creation process, the result comes off as being more grounded. Read a few excerpts from her interview below and head over here to check out the full feature.

“Lyrically, it’s more political and less abstract than before. Like, really trippy free association about nature and sh*t. There’s a song that’s from the perspective of a butterfly in the Amazon as people are cutting down trees; there’s a song that’s from the perspective of angels who are polluted, so they’re crying polluted tears. I feel like it’s more about the Earth. I think I was more in society when I was making it, so it feels more grounded … I think my music used to be more escapist. Visions didn’t really acknowledge reality, but this record is more about looking reality in the face.”
