Grimes uploads 'Nightcore' remix of 'We Appreciate Power'

She's also writing a fantasy novel about a "lesbian romance"...

Grimes has just put out a ‘Nightcore’ reimagining of her and HANA’s ‘We Appreciate Power’.

For those unfamiliar with it, the meme-friendly genre is characterised by its chipmunk vocals and sped-up sound, named after a Norwegian DJ duo from the early 2000s.

The original has been pitch-shifted and the tempo raised, resulting in a high-speed, saccharine rework.

Writing on Twitter, Grimes also announced that she’d been working on a fantasy novel instead of completing her follow-up to 2015’s ‘Art Angels’:

Recently, it was reported that the electronic artist was being dragged into her ex-boyfriend Elon Musk’s securities fraud trial, with her name being brought up in the case.

Listen below to the remix, complete with its own anime artwork.
