It's like building a relationship with someone you are growing to love. In the service of the long-term relationship I want you to build with this album, plus a few final tweaks to make this music the very best it can be, I have decided to move the date to April 20th."

Kimbra has quietly spent the past two years assembling the 11-track album with hit-machine Skrillex ("Top of the World"), among other producers in Los Angeles and New Zealand. Stripping down Kimbra's music to bare emotion and heart, the record invites listeners to experience the inherent vulnerability in her voice, conveying raw feeling throughout each song. Thus far, Kimbra has released two singles off the album, including "Everybody Knows" and "Top of the World" which Uproxx describes as "bass-rattling," and Baeble Music says, "If you don't know Kimbra by now, then you're in an ever-diminishing minority," in addition to praise from Stereogum, Brooklyn Vegan, and more.
Kimbra's voice seeped into the hearts and minds of listeners around the globe in 2012. She dueted with Gotye on the inescapable quadruple-platinum smash "Somebody That I Used to Know," which garnered "Record of the Year" and "Best Pop Duo/Group Performance" at the 2013 GRAMMY® Awards. Moreover, she made history by becoming "the third New Zealand singer to win a GRAMMY®." She confidently stepped into the spotlight on her second full-length, The Golden Echo, earning acclaim from Paste, Los Angeles Times, Spin, Consequence of Sound and more, in addition to yielding the hits "90s Music," "As You Are," and "Goldmine."
