Grimes, 'REALiTi'

Electro-pop singer Grimes is sharing a previously unreleased track with fans and a video to go with it. The song "REALiTi" was originally recorded in 2013, and the video was shot on location during Grimes' tour that year through Asia. "Since this is no longer gonna be on the album," Grimes says on her tumblr site, "I'm releasing it as a special thank you to everyone in Singapore, KL, Manila, Jakarta, HK, Shanghai, Beijing, Taipei, Seoul, Osaka, Nagoya and Tokyo who came out to the shows!"

Grimes calls the song a demo from "the lost album," a record she intended to have follow her 2012 Visions album, but scrapped. "I lost the Ableton file, so its not mixed or mastered. I tried to doctor the mp3 into a listenable state, but it was poorly recorded in the first place and never meant to be heard by anyone, so its a bit of a mess haha."
