Grimes released her new album, Miss Anthropocene, this morning, and Twitter is popping off. The 15-track cosmic banger has already been approved by music critic Pitchfork – giving the album a strong 8.2 rating and dubbing it “Best New Music.” Miss Athropocene is Grimes’s fifth studio album, joining her alien pop family of Art Angels (2015), Visions (2012), Halfaxa (2010), and Geidi Primes (2010).
“Violence,” “4 ÆM,” and “New Gods” are a few songs from Miss Athropocene that have already imbued the internet with some high-octane electro-pop energy – the full album is available to stream now on all platforms.
If you’re wondering what “Miss Anthropocene” means – the word “Athropocene” refers to our current geological age, where human activity is the dominant influence on climate and the environment. Grimes was generous enough to give more clarity on the subject, in a poignant poem released alongside her new album.
“I, Poet of Destruction: Herby declare that global warming is good. So, you humans have carved your existence into the Earth. Lest you be forgotten. Why lament. Be who you are. Embrace your demise. For you are the architect of it. How smart you are to eradicate a species as resilient as your own. Why deny your power. It’s the greatest show in the Universe. Celebrate with me. The most momentous of deaths. Now is the time to burn twice as bright and half as long. Sincerely, Miss Anthropocene.”
Ahead, check out the hilariously bizarre early reactions to Miss Athropocene from Grimes stans on Twitter.
