meinweltist asked: So Grimes / Claire, when will the new album drop. Do you have an approximation such as a certain year, season, month, day. IDK. Something along those lines.
well, its a little complicated to give an exact time because once you finish an album you have to mix and master it, and then it takes at least 3 months lead up for press, manufacturing etc. so thats a weird variable
before visions came out I had already been on diy tours for over a year and then continued to tour until this april, so I haven’t had that much time to work.
plus the first music i ever played period was me making my first album (geidi primes) and that I’ve only been making music for a couple years. Its really important to me to improve as a musician instead of just pushing out these (perhaps endearingly) sketchy records and never actually learning my craft. It’s important to me that the next album is better than visions technically, but its also really important to me that it has the same heart and soul and isn’t rushed.
I also might do some crazy things… that i dont want to say yet, that might make it a bit longer, but will be reeaaally worth it.
so to answer your question, ideally early next year but it might be longer. The most important thing is that its good.
its weird, but when u start being a musician people go crazy (as does ur schedule) and you have to re-orient your life in a lot of ways. i think thats why many bands experience the so-called ‘sophomore slump’; because they are trying to feed expectations and they lose themselves in the process.
im just getting over the pressure of the expectations (haha even tho this will be my 4th album - but theoretically my second ‘big’ one). I need to remove all media and all writers and all pressure from my brain so i can make the pure thing i would make regardless of all this craziness.
lol, i dont know if this answers your question at all, but people ask this daily so i figured i should try and answer it
