Grimes, the electro-pop project of Montreal’s Claire Boucher, will release its newest album, Visions, via British label 4AD on February 21. Building on the twitchy goth template set out by her flurry of 2010 and 2011 releases, the new record will continue to showcase Boucher’s unique combination of ethereal, quasi-spiritual vocals with bubbly beats and soothing IDM textures.
 
While the album was originally slated for a smaller-scale release through Canadian independent Artbus on January 31, Boucher is ecstatic about the switch to a larger label. Artbus will still handle the Canadian release of the record. On her stream-of-conscious-ey Twitter, Boucher wrote, “Just want 2 say i am so honoured to be releasing my next album with 4AD, a record label I have admired since I was 13 and first heard the cocteau twins and realized girls can make music, and goth is sick.”
