Grimes looks to be getting ready to release a new album, and after her 2012 critically acclaimed LP "Visions," we are going to call the new LP something that is generating quite a bit of excitement.

Grimes and her brother just directed a video for her new track, "Go," and its like living in the desert in the year 4000AD with slip-on adidas sandals. And the song is really good, too.
