NY based kiwi, Kimbra will release Songs From Primal Heart, Reimagined on October 26, featuring acoustic versions of four songs from her acclaimed album Primal Heart.
Fans who pre-order Songs From Primal Heart, Reimagined will instantly receive the first track, ‘Black Sky’.
“I’ve always wanted to make an acoustic collection of songs, where I move away from beats and strip things down. I think people find an intimacy in my work when I present it in a more minimal way,” says Kimbra.
For this new EP, Kimbra entrusted the production and arrangement to Norwegian producer, multi-instrumentalist & composer Lars Horntveth of Jaga Jazzist, enabling her to focus solely on her role as a vocalist. It was recorded and mixed by Chris Tabron at Red Bull studios in New York, and with the large studio at their disposal, they were able to record the songs live, with the musicians all in the same room.
Kimbra says, “It was a different process to the layered, stream of consciousness, collaborative and often chaotic way I work on my more produced
records. I wanted a simple cast of characters to bring these songs to life in the most minimal, intimate way possible.”
