Grimes Returns for 'Go,' Her First New Song in Nearly Two Years

Grimes premiered "Go," a song she wrote with collaborator Blood Diamonds for Rihanna that the pop star ultimately rejected, at Governors Ball earlier this month. Now that tune, which features a backdrop of screams, New-Wave keyboards and EDM stuttering as she sings about dreams, memories and escapism, is her first studio recording in nearly two years and available for download on her website.

"It's our summer jam so we figured we should put it out 'cuz I am very bored of waiting to finish my album b4 releasing new music haha," Grimes mastermind Claire Boucher wrote in a statement.

Prior to playing the song at Governors Ball, Grimes tweeted that the track is "special and top secret and new." After explaining that Rihanna had opted not to record it, she issued a disclaimer for her own performance, warning "it's kinda different from regular grimes."

Currently Boucher is working on the follow-up to the 2012 Grimes album Visions. In early June, she reported that she and her collaborators have rerecorded and reproduced all the old Visions songs, too, "so they are much better now." But while she continues to work on the record, she is still playing a handful of shows this summer.

Here are her tour dates:

7/18 Pemberton, BC - Pemberton Music Festival
7/19 Toronto – Time Festival
7/20 Chicago – Pitchfork Festival
8/23 Los Angeles – FYF Fest
8/30 – 8/31 Philadelphia – Made in America Festival

Almost everyone has mentioned all the songs I like of her but I'm gonna add some of my staples.

(I dunno if she has performed this live ever, but it being a bonus track sort of saddens me of the possibility that she wont ever.)

I adore Grimes, but I hate that pose and outfit she has on in that picture. She's so much better than that!

lol at that outfit. waiting for someone to use that picture for a genderswapped musketeers graphic or something now.

It's def not as experimental as her previous work, but I really don't care as long as I have new Grimes. 🙉
