Looks like that new Grimes album isn't coming so soon after all

Sadly it looks like that fabled Grimes album we thought was coming is... not coming. At least not for a while.

Earlier this month Grimes said that the album would "realistically" be coming in the autumn, although she was hoping for a spring release. By the sounds of things neither are likely, and 2018 will pass without an officially released peep from the "Oblivion" mastermind.

Editing the previous post teasing the record, Grimes says: "welp no music any time soon after all music industry is trash."

She did later clarify that she has no problems with her management:

The Canadian producer's most recent album Art Angels arrived in 2015 - although she's hardly been quiet in the years since its release, contributing to the Suicide Squad OST, teaming up with HANA to cover Tegan and Sara, and releasing a lot of music videos.

Grimes has spoken about the Art Angels follow up a few times, describing it as "slow and heavy" with "chill vibes, downtempos, synth-y shit". She also said last summer that she was "in the studio every day trying to legit make something you’ve never heard before." Late last year she played some to her label and revealed the full LP was almost complete.
