In November, Grimes released Art Angels. The FADER sat down with the Canadian producer and singer to find out how she’s evolved the Grimes project, being a DIY artist, and what’s she learned from touring.

“At first, I guess, there was just Grimes,” she told Fader. “I don’t technically have control of her narrative anymore—she very much exists in pop culture now. Grimes as one person cannot represent more than a couple of ideas. That’s why I started developing some of the other characters, like really abstract from who I am and how I am.”

Watch the documentary above to see what else she had to say.
