Grimes Drops Chroma Green Video for “You'll Miss Me When I'm Not Around”
- Canadian singer-songwriter Grimes has dropped a new music video for “You'll Miss Me When I'm Not Around”.
The track is included on her fifth studio album “Miss Anthropocene”, which was released back in February.
The clip features Grimes with chroma key green back screen for CGI. She wrote on YouTube channel that listeners will be able to create a new visual using this footage.
Grimes said of the video, “we shot 5 of these greenscreen “lyric videos” so we could have visuals for the album (doing our regular intensive videos in my state didn’t seem super wise etc etc) But obvs w delete forever we started messing around in post and making better stuff than we thought we could. Anyhow - Because we’re all in lockdown we thought if people are bored and wanna learn new things, we could release the raw components of one of these for anyone who wants to try making stuff using our footage.”
- She said of the song, “I got this weird bass that was signed by Derek Jeter in a used music place. I don’t know why—I was just trying to practice the bass and trying to play more instruments. This one feels sort of basic for me, but I just really fell in love with the lyrics. It’s more like “Delete Forever”, where it feels like it’s almost too simple for Grimes. But it felt really good—I just liked putting it on. Again, you gotta follow the vibe, and it had a good vibe. Ultimately it’s sort of about an angel who kills herself and then she wakes up and she still made it to heaven. And she’s like, ‘What the fuck? I thought I could kill myself and get out of heaven.’ It’s sort of about when you’re just pissed and everyone’s being a jerk to you.”
