Thank god, because I don’t think we need any (more) internet speculation about how Grimes and Elon Musk might be the first recognized interstellar couple. The latter’s doing things that don’t really concern TMT from a publication standpoint, and the former, well…it’s been a while.

Art Angels earned a spot on our Favorite 50 Music Releases of 2015 list, and since that time, Grimes has released essentially NONE of the new music for which her fans have been justifiably clamoring (and to which she alluded earlier this year).

That all changes at least marginally this Thursday, November 29.

Grimes announced two things in social media form yesterday:

1. The opening of her brand new web store, which already features t-shirts emblazoned with what we can only presume is a rendition Claire Boucher’s self-perception.

2. New music on November 29.

The fact that she says “new music” makes me think that it’s something of the single variety, but I suppose there’s not much point in speculating when the hour is nearly upon us. Time to do that anticipatory hand movement for roughly 48 hours. Join me, won’t you?
