News__ Grimes has “Phone Sex”

May 31, 2012 | By

Blood Diamonds and Grimes have phone sex.

Peppered with steel drums and Grimes' ethereal vocals, "Phone Sex" by Blood Diamonds has summer written all over it. This is the LA-based producer's first single off his debut album What, which is pretty extraordinary considering all the hype surrounding the song. We don't want to discount Blood Diamonds' skills but obviously being friends with Grimes has its benefits.

Grimes said that the song "came after a sleepless night in Mike's [aka Blood Diamonds] room, sipping gin and reading Nabokov over the holidays in Vancouver. It's our ultimate pop fantasy brought to life."

"Phone Sex" will be officially released July 24 by 4AD. It's going to be pressed on a 12" transparent pink vinyl and will include remixes by Jensen Sportag and Unicorn Kid.
