Pop star, producer or pariah? The conflicted brilliance of Grimes

Claire Boucher has spent a decade battling the press to reclaim her reputation. Dating Elon Musk means she’s never been more controversial – but could her new album set her free?Grimes has always had a tortured relationship with visibility.

She wanted to be Phil Spector – tho...

With country-inflected violin and banjo, the song has a different sound from the Canadian musician’s recent releases, but her …
