Bring Me The Horizon and Grimes team up for new single Nihilist Blues

Bring Me The Horizon

Bring Me The Horizon have released their new song Nihilist Blues, which features a guest appearance from Grimes.

The track will feature on the band’s album Amo, which will arrive tomorrow (January 25) via RCA.

Speaking with Zane Lowe on his Apple Music Beats 1 show earlier this week, Bring Me The Horizon frontman Oli Sykes spoke about the collaboration.

He said: “She was like, ‘This is one of the greatest songs I've ever heard in my life. I'm definitely doing it.’ She was just so cool about it. 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 The Horizon song.

“I think at that time it was really good for us because we were in Los Angeles 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 was like, ‘Are people gonna get this?’ It sounds cheesy, but just to get her stamp of approval as well as her vocal was just massive – ‘Yes, we're doing the right thing!’

“So, for her to be like, ‘This is amazing. I love it so much that I have to do this,’ was a really cool, positive experience.”

Earlier this week, Bring Me The Horizon released their “straight up love song” Mother Tongue from the new record.

BMTH are currently on the road across North America.
