This has been an immense Christmas for new music. We’ve already been gifted with new Radiohead, new Future Islands and new LCD Soundsystem. Now, Canadian artist Grimes has shared a previously unheard track, Fifteen Minutes To.
Sharing the news via her Tumblr, Grimes notes that the track had been uncovered by way of a 2010 podcast titled ‘Midnight Poutine‘. So while it’s not exactly a new track, you’ve almost certainly never heard it before.
Grimes’ recent album Art Angels is one of the most celebrated of the year (including earning a spot in Howl & Echoes’ best songs and albums of 2015 lists). It’s always fascinating to go back and listen to a much earlier incarnation of an artist popular today, so fans will no doubt get a kick out of this one.
Grimes will be in town in early 2016, to perform at St Jerome’s Laneway Festival alongside a small solo tour. Dates below:
