grimes23232211 Grimes Gives Update on Next Album

Grimes took out some time before her Coachella performance to talk to Billboard and give a little update on the follow-up to her excellent 2012 album Visions:

On progress of the new album:

“I’m probably like two-fifths done. I know that’s a weird number. I’m more than one-third but less than two-thirds, but I’m not one-half but I’m more than one-quarter.”

On the sound:

“The album is experimental in its own right, but in terms of fidelity and stuff, it’s also very strong. So that’s where I’m trying to go.”

On building a studio:

“I work in my bedroom but I’m making a studio. Honestly, it’s cheaper for me to build a studio than to rent a studio so I’m in the process. I just got really nice monitors and I just got a really nice vocal mic a couple of days ago, so I’m just building that.”

On collaborations:

“When I’m making a song that’s very Grimes, it just feels very insular and it feels weird to have someone else do something on it.”
