Grimes Premieres New Song “Delete Forever” on Apple Beats 1
- Canadian singer-songwriter Grimes premiered a new song “Delete Forever” on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 radio show.
The song is taken from her upcoming fifth studio album “Miss Anthropocene”, which is set to be released on February 21st.
Grimes told Zane Lowe about the song, “I mean, the song is pretty, it’s a pretty bummer song. I guess it’s kind of about the opioid epidemic. I’ve had quite a few friends pass away, in particular, one friend when I was 18 passed away from complications related to opioid addiction. Artists keep dying and stuff so I wrote this song on the night Lil Peep died because I just got super triggered. Lil Peep and Juice WRLD were both artists I really liked. The artists its happening to specifically feels… a little too on the nose. I think [they were] people who in my opinion were best expressing issues of mental health. So to have them die specifically just feels like a weird hopelessness.”
