Grimes - Go (Feat. Blood Diamonds)

Grimes' upcoming album is easily one of my most anticipated releases for this year.  There's a rumored September release date, but that could very well change at any moment, if it hasn't already.  Yesterday, Grimes premiered a new song on Zane Lowe's show and it happened to be the much talked about track that was originally intended for Rihanna.

"Go" is a collaboration between Grimes and Blood Diamonds, who previously worked together on the fantastic "Phone Sex".  Claire hasn't confirmed whether or not the single will appear on the full album or if it's a sign of what's to come, in terms of genre.  The self-described "summer jam" incorporates the recently successful synthline breakdown trap sound and completely flips around everything you thought Grimes to be.

You can stream or download "Go" below and be amazed by the new press photo pictured above.  Claire describes the look as an "anime elf assassin who is a big fan of dolly parton and patsy cline".
