Grimes shares new LP cover and promises new music next week

Art Angels will be the first LP release from the Canadian artist since cult hit Visions

Grimes has unveiled the art work for her forthcoming LP release, Art Angels. We already knew our Grimes could draw (she scribbled a variant cover for comic Wicked + Divine earlier this year) but we didn’t know she’d be drawing her own LP cover – and this one’s inspired by comic culture.

As a sweet-faced alien cries blood on the left of the album cover, the righthand side depicts another otherworldly character alongside an edition number and album title.

Grimes announced the artwork via Twitter and, excitingly, promised new music and video for next week.

See the artwork in full below and the tweet that heralds the first new music we’ve heard from Grimes since standalone release REALiTi.
