In yesterday's Instagram teaser (which is different from the Tidal one), Grimes explained why the "Venus Fly" video was important for her to make:

"Sometimes it feels futile to be making art in this cruel and extreme political climate, but some of the brightest moments of the last few months for me and for a lot of you, i suspect, have come from seeing @janellemonae 's amazing and positive vision of the future, especially when we are being introduced to so many possible dystopian futures."

Grimes also shared a her "Deep Vibes" Tidal playlist that features RihannaThe Dixie ChicksLana Del ReyFifth Harmony and more. Next, watch the artist chat about touring and taking time off after Art Angels in the Fuse interview below:
