Back in 2012, Grimes told Vulture that she wanted her next album to sound “like industrial meets Jigglypuff.” Apparently, that did not turn out so well. “It sucked,” Grimes says of her follow-up to Visions, “so I threw it out and started again.” According to the New York Times, she’s since abandoned the reclusive atmosphere that produced her previous albums and is now “hanging out with people and bouncing ideas” in Los Angeles, which has led to her writing more songs than ever before. It is unclear if any of them are about Pokémon.
