Grimes appeared on Annie Mac's BBC Radio 1 show this week to perform three songs: two Art Angels cuts and a cover of "Ave Maria." Grimes previously showed her appreciation for "Ave Maria," "one of her all-time favorite songs," in January during a show in Seoul.
During a brief interview with her host, Grimes described the work that went in to Art Angels and how the record differed from its predecessors. She deflected Mac's praise for her all-around skills as a singer/songwriter/producer. "It's kind of an extended form of laziness," Grimes said, reflecting on her in-depth studio approach. "Because the reality is my nerves are too bad to let anybody record my vocals or anything."
