Grimes will be releasing her long-awaited album Miss Anthropocene on February 21st. Today, she has unveiled her newest single 'Delete Forever' which she wrote on the night Lil Peep passed away. During her latest interview with Zane Lowe for Beats 1, Grimes expounded on writing the song.
I mean, the song is pretty, it's a pretty bummer song. Oh my God, I'm so bad at talking about this song. I guess this song is kind of — I guess it's kind of about the opioid epidemic and that kinda thing 'cause uh, I've had like, quite a few friends actually like, pass away, in particular one friend when I was like 18 passed away, from complications related to opioid addiction. It's just like, you know, artists keep dying and stuff so, I wrote this song on the night Lil Peep died or whatever 'cause I just got super — super triggered by that.
