The 15-track effort marks Claire Boucher’s fourth to date following 2012’s Visions. The result of months of writing and studio time, Art Angels only came to fruition after Boucher had scrapped an entire collection of songs.
One song on the album, called “Kill V Maim”, is written from the perspective of Al Pacino in The Godfather Pt 2. “Except he’s a vampire who can switch gender and travel through space,” she told Q.
Elsewhere on the album, according to an interview with Dazed and Confused, is a song “from the perspective of a butterfly in the Amazon as people are cutting down trees; there’s a song that’s from the perspective of angels who are polluted, so they’re crying polluted tears.”
