Months after it was first teased, Grimes and Chris Lake's highly anticipated collab, "A Drug from God," is finally here — and it just so happens to be the debut of a brand new artificial intelligence-fueled girl group, called NPC.
While Grimes hasn't revealed too much, the group's name does appear to be in reference to the gamer shorthand for a non-playable character (which basically encompasses any character that isn't or can't be controlled by a flesh and blood player).
On Instagram, Grimes explained that they pushed the single's release back a week because the visual assets and press photos were still being finalized, writing that "we're stuck on making their faces."
The artist followed up in another post that "you'll all see why in a month or so, so I apologise abt delays of music and visuals. Gna be catching up on the girls visual development and whatnot – but me and @chrislake just needed to get this song out cuz it's been going so hard at festivals!!!!""
