Grimes plays unreleased song ‘Welcome To The Opera’ during DJ set at Electric Daisy Carnival
During her DJ set at Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas over the weekend, Grimes played an unreleased song titled ‘Welcome To The Opera’.
The track opened the musician’s evening set at the festival on Saturday night (May 21). It’s a collaboration with producer Anyma, who Grimes tagged in a tweet when confirming its title.
She later tweeted indicating that she would be dropping a demo of the song if Anyma was onboard, but that she’d still like to edit the song more before the final version is officially released.

While the DJ set didn’t draw heavily on her own music, Grimes did drop a Bloodpop remix of her ‘Miss Anthropocene’-era cut ‘We Appreciate Power’. Hana, who features on the song, joined Grimes onstage as it was played.
