Grimes Debuts Two ‘Art Angels’ Tracks Live, Covers ‘Ave Maria’
It’s been nearly three months since Grimes dropped Art Angels, but material from the new album has been limited when it comes to the Canadian singer-producer’s live sets. Last weekend, however, Grimes’ Ac!d Reign tour took her to Seoul, South Korea, where she debuted two Art Angels cuts on stage for the very first time.
You can see Grimes perform lead single “Flesh Without Blood” and album closer “Butterfly” with a pair of backup dancers in the videos at the bottom of the page. (A clip of her performing Art Angels' "REALiTi" can be seen in the first video.) She also trotted out a cover of Franz Schubert’s “Ave Maria,” which, as Stereogum points out, is one of the singer’s “all time favourite songs.” Grimes’ rendition kicks in around the 9:35 mark in the final video.
Grimes’ tour will take her to the U.S. in April when she’ll perform at Coachella, Hangout Music Festival and Sasquatch!. In May, she’ll open for Florence and the Machine during a string of dates. View her itinerary right here.
