Listen to Grimes and Poppy’s grinding new song ‘Play Destroy’

The collab features on Poppy’s new album Am I a Girl?

That long-awaited Grimes and Poppy collaboration is finally here, and it’s called “Play Destroy”. The partnership, which was first teased in a series of pictures of the musicians posted to social media a few months ago, is an amalgamation of cutesy pop and ravaging heavy metal.

“Poppy, I’m dying!” 

“It’s a Hollywood moment,” Poppy sing songs.

“Play Destroy” features on Poppy’s second album Am I a Girl?, out today (October 31). Poppy recently told NME that the album has a much darker side that her previous work, exploring everything from fashion and gender fluidity to robots. She also detailed how she and Grimes got together to make music. 

“That song is about destroying things,” she said plainly. Things she wants to destroy? “Corporations,” which she believes Grimes is into too…

Poppy said that she has worked on two songs with the Art Angels musician, one which features on the album and one yet to come. 

Grimes previously told fans that she hoped to drop the follow up to Art Angels later this year. She has shared working tracklists so far and very brief song snippets from the as-of-yet unnamed project. More recently she featured on songs with Janelle Monae and K-pop band Loona, and wrote and performed the theme tune for Netflix cartoon Hilda.
