LISTEN: Grimes Releases New Single “Fifteen Minutes To”

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:


Friday 5 February: Harts Mill, Port Adelaide (16+)
Saturday 6 February: Brisbane Showgrounds, Brisbane (16+)
