Kimbra Releases US Version of Debut VOWS Today, 5/22
International newcomer Kimbra releases the US version of her debut album Vows for Warner Bros. Records today, May 22, 2012. Vows features several brand new songs in addition to tracks from the platinum-certified Australian edition of the album.
Released in Australia in August 2011, Vows has earned Kimbra the ARIA (Australian Grammy) for Best Female Artist and spawned three hit singles. These tracks, "Good Intent," "Cameo Lover," and "Settle Down," are also included on the US edition of Vows. Kimbra recorded additional tracks for the release in Los Angeles, CA with such producers and songwriters as Mike Elizondo and Greg Kurstin.
