Grimes has released a video for “IDORU,” the closing track on her recently released album, Miss Anthropocene.
The visual intersperses clips from the anime Utena Revolutionary Girl and the video game NieR: Automata with saturated footage of Grimes sporting heavy and colorful makeup. According to the singer, the videos of her were taken from a recent “camera test that ended up being a weirdly emotional performance.”
“So don’t expect the fanciest visual ever,” Grimes wrote on Instagram. “But we noticed ‘IDORU’ has become a fan favorite and I wanted to express my appreciation to y’all. This has been by far the most rewarding album release week of my life/career etc. Not a day goes by where I’m not overwhelmed with gratitude that my passion is my work. Thanks so much to all of you who bothered to tune in to Miss Anthropocene.”
