Bring Me The Horizon Release New Song Featuring Grimes
Just one day before the release of amo, Bring Me The Horizon have dropped a lyric video for new track nihilist blues featuring synth-pop artist Grimes.
Frontman Oli Sykes recently spoke to Beats 1 about working with Grimes on the new album.
“She was like, ‘This is one of the greatest songs I’ve ever heard in my life. I’m definitely doing it,’” says Oli. “And she was just so cool about it. She wasn’t at all like the cool kid… She’d got all the influences, because the song’s quite out there in terms of what it sounds like compared to a Bring Me song.
“And I think at that time, it was really good for us, because we were in LA recording, and we’d been working on the album for about nine months. We’d lost all perspective… I knew I loved the song, but at the same time, I’m all like, ‘Are people gonna get this?’
“It sounds cheesy, but just to get her like stamp of approval as well as her vocal was just like a massive like, ‘Yes, we’re doing the right thing.’ So, for her to be like, ‘Yo, this is amazing. I love it so much that I have to do this,’ is just a really cool, positive experience.”
