Grimes' 'Miss Anthropocene' Will Finally See the Light of Day
by Marissa Matozzo15 November 2019
After what's felt like years of teasing, early retirement announcements, and celebrity drama,Grimes has finally emerged from her elaborate "fitness" routine long enough to detail the long-awaited follow-up to 2015's Art Angels.
Grimes' fifth studio album, Miss Anthropocene, officially arrives on February 21, 2020 via 4AD. In addition to unveiling the 10-song tracklist, she's shared an atmospheric new single, "So Heavy I Fell Through the Earth," which opens the album. The multi-instrumentalist released two mixes of the track: a six-minute "Art Mix" edition, and another four-minute version more fit for the radio, called the "Algorithm Mix."
In the track's earworm of a chorus, Grimes sings about an all-powerful love: "So heavy I fell through the earth/ Cuz I'm full of love from you."
Also, in true Grimes fashion, "So Heavy" comes with a visual depicting her equipped with a sword and... preparing to fight a dragon? This follows "Violence," another Miss Anthropocene track that came with a self-directed video full of still more sword fighting and choreography. Never change.
