“I don’t deserve this. Full stop. Yet, here it is,” Grimes shared on Instagram announcing the EP on Monday (September 18). “I’m so grateful to everyone who has helped me get here. A dream of putting music out in the world and getting to share it live is now something of a reality. Thank you for listening and showing up.” He released the Vance-written “Hold On” in August 2023. “Over the last few years there aren’t many people whose music has resonated with me as much as @foyvance,” the actor stated. “He’s a giant talent and a master truth-teller. I will forever be grateful that we were able to collaborate on this song.”
In support of Pain Pills Or Pews, Grimes will embark on a limited-engagement 2023 tour in late fall that takes him to theaters around the U.S. The trek begins on November 9 at Newport Music Hall in his native Ohio and concludes on December 16 at the Royale in Boston.
