Canada connects for this intriguing effort from producer Blood Diamonds and the versatile Grimes. The two aimed at creating a “big pop song,” although when most think of pop music, this may not exactly be what comes to mind. Regardless, you can check for yourself below what Blood Diamonds had to say regarding the work. The accompanying Phone Sex EP will become available on July 24.

We wanted to do a big pop song and wrote it in my bedroom in a night. I played the track later that week at a Blood Diamonds show with Claire as the secret guest. It was ridiculous. We wore LED glasses and projected the PS2 game “Rez” onto a mise-en-scène of “Twin Peaks”, whilst performing on a slippery stage due to the opening act (ice skaters on fake ice dancing to a David Lynch cover orchestra). Later that month, I reproduced “Phone Sex” with halo drums and we re-wrote the lyrics together. When Claire came over to work on those, I didn’t have my phone on me and she slept on my complex’s porch for half an hour, I still feel bad about it. The song was mixed down in Kansas City on a board which was also used onThriller (mostly did this for laughs).
