Grimes has released a new song, “So Heavy I Fell Through The Earth,” the latest single from her upcoming album Miss_Anthropocene, which still does not have a release date. It’s purportedly the third single that will be included on the album, following “We Appreciate Power,” which came out almost a year ago, and “Violence,” which came out back in September. “So Heavy I Fell Through The Earth” is an airy and dark six-and-a-half-minute dirge centered around the lyric: “So heavy I fell through the earth/ Cus I’m full of love for you.” Grimes has shared two different versions of it — the full-length “Art Mix” and the shorter “Algorithm Mix.”
She announced the single’s release earlier this week in an Instagram post, saying: “Hooo boy finally just got release dates for things from label this AM.” In the comments of that post, she responded to a few people saying that more Miss_Anthropocene singles were on the way: a track called “My Name Is Dark” is up next, followed by “4æm,” which she locked down to a release date of 12/12. She shared a snippet of the latter one on social media last year.
Perhaps most importantly, Miss Anthropocene (now with no underscore) has an official release date of 2/21/20. It also has cover art and a tracklist. “We Appreciate Power,” originally billed as the album’s lead single, is not on it. “Violence,” which was later also billed as the lead single, did make the cut.
