Grimes has teased new music is coming ''soon''.

The 29-year-old pop star - real name Claire Boucher - has kept her fans waiting two years for the much-anticipated follow-up to 2015's 'Art Angels', but she has now revealed she has played new material to her record label, and they ''really dig it''.

Replying to a follower on Twitter over the weekend, she wrote: ''just played label new music they rly dig it so hopefully smthn soon (sic)''

In August, the 'Venus Fly' singer said reassured fans that she was spending ''every day'' working on her fifth studio album.

The singer/songwriter said at the time that she just needed a bit more time for ''pure unadulterated creativity''.

She wrote on Instagram: ''I kno i've been quiet lately - in the studio every day trying to legit make something you've never heard before. unexplored sonic landscapes. i need another month or 2 of pure unadulterated creativity at which point i will begin finishing tracks. won't let u down (sic)''

Grimes gave the album update in a social media post announcing she'd been included in Harper's Bazaar's Icons list.

She posted a short video revealing the news and added the caption: ''moving up in the world guys! tomorrow Grimes will be included in the #bazaaricons list! (sic)''

Meanwhile, the 'Oblivion' hitmaker previously insisted being a famous artist is mostly down to luck, and even if she wasn't well-known she would still be making music.

She said: ''For anyone who is successful in art, it's 90 per cent luck and chance.

''If you're talented and you're not getting anywhere, you shouldn't feel bad. It's not just hard work and talent.

''I'd still be able to make records because I own all the equipment and I have all the skills.''
