Art Angels is the fourth studio album by Canadian singer and songwriter Claire Boucher, professionally known as Grimes. It was digitally released on November 6, 2015, by 4AD, and in physical formats on December 11. Boucher began planning the record in 2013 as the follow-up to her third studio album Visions, however she scrapped most of the material from these sessions and began a new set of recordings in 2014.

Art Angels is the fourth studio album from Canadian artist Grimes.

Art Angels’ opening trio of songs present a handy summation of Claire Boucher’s singular appeal. The operatic Laughing and Not Being Normal opens before making way for California. Next up: the strident Scream featuring Taiwanese rapper Aristophanes and plenty of actual howling

It makes the album a bit of a wanderfest - like Grimes couldn't decide on a direction for the sound to go. Or perhaps she was ready to show off her apparently vast range. The thread that holds this thing together seems to come from the lyrical side.

Grimes Revs Up for 'Art Angels' Release With Spellbinding Double Music Video: Watch. Art Angels is a marvel of meticulous, even obsessive home-studio recording, uncompromised by bandmates or collaborators. Boucher produced it and made the record herself, save for two vocal features: Aristophanes, a Taiwanese rapper she spotted on SoundCloud, and R&B futurist Janelle Monáe. Boucher directs her own videos, paints her album covers, exhibits drawings, curates a great Tumblr, and gives hilarious and nuanced interviews. Even discounting for the tendency of Americans to perceive Canadians as intellectually superior (Marshall McLuhan was a Canuck, but so were Bachman-Turner Overdrive), she’s a canny, self-aware performer. Grimes is an art project at risk of going mainstream, and Boucher knows it.

Art Angels is an uncompromisingly colorful conception of pop music’s kaleidoscopic future, a clash between modern dance pop conventions and the independent sensibility of a singular artist.
