New Zealand-born, Melbourne-based pop songstress Kimbra has released the official audio for her new single '90's Music', which debuted on Australian radio two nights ago. The track features guitar from Muse frontman Matt Bellamy.
Check it out here:
Bellamy is just one of the guests on Kimbra's as-yet-untitled second studio album, including appearances from Daniel Johns (Silverchair), Van Dyke Parks, Thundercat, Bilal, Omar Rodriguez-López (The Mars Volta), Ben Weinman (The Dillinger Escape Plan), Mark Foster
(Foster The People), Keefus Green, John Legend, along with members of Dirty Projectors,
Unknown Mortal Orchestra and Queens of the Stone Age.
The release of '90's Music' comes off the back of Kimbra's recent announcement of an Australian tour with Janelle Monáe, dubbed "The Golden Electric Tour".
Here is a little taste of what's expected when the duo embark on the journey:
The Golden Electric Tour dates:
May 17 – Forum Theatre, Melbourne
May 19 – Sydney Opera House, Sydney
May 21 – Convention Centre, Brisbane
May 24 – Vector Arena, Auckland
May 26 – The Plenary, Melbourne
I really don't even like Kimbra, but this is easily the catchiest thing I've heard in many months. New guilty pleasure. I will become a closet fan if the rest of the album is this experimental and neat.
