Back in the beginning of summer, Canadian no-fi pop star/producer Claire Elise Boucher, a.k.a. Grimes, collaborated with Blood Diamonds to write this intense, synth-driven track…for Rihanna. In a surprising turn of events RiRi decided not to take the track, so Grimes pocketed it for herself and premiered it during her set at Governors’ Ball in June. In a new video premiered today, the clubby beats and trippy sounds come to life. It’s a series of crazy scenery from Grimes channeling her inner Khaleesi from Game of Thrones, a solo-dance party on sand dunes, a hypnotic fish-eye look into a rave scene, AND Blood Diamonds shows up as a warrior in what appears to be ancient ruins along a body of water. I won’t spoil everything for you, so check the video out for yourself. You can see Grimes performing on the Liberty Stage at Made in America festival this Sunday.
