Grimes Says REALiTi Wasn't Supposed To Be A Music Video | Fuse
Miss Anthropocene is the upcoming fifth studio album by Canadian musician Grimes, scheduled to be released on February 21, 2020. It was announced on March 19, 2019. The album's name is a pun on the feminine title "Miss", and the words "misanthrope" and "Anthropocene", a neologism popularised in the year 2000 by Paul J. Crutzen that was proposed to denote the current geological age the Earth is in. The album is a loose concept album about an "anthropomorphic goddess of climate change" inspired by Roman mythology and villainy. Miss Anthropocene is Grimes' final album on record label 4AD, which she had been signed to since 2012. Sonically, the album is a departure from Grimes' 2015 album Art Angels: Miss Anthropocene is primarily darker in style containing inspiration from the sounds of nu metal and ethereal wave compared to Art Angels' brighter and more upbeat sounds.
