Kimbra, the singer and songwriter from New Zealand, has recently release her new song titled Sweet Relief. This was the first time in two years Kimbra released a new song every since her album, The Golden Echo.
This song was written and produced by Kimbra and Redinho, a London producer and artist, co-produced by Andrew Maury and mastered Joe LaPorta. The video itself was directed by Phillip David Stearns, and it contains waves of different colors that mix with the music.
When the artist shared her thoughts about the song, she said the following:
“‘Sweet Relief’ came from a season of experimentation where I took time to work with some upcoming artists and producers that I love, I’m a big fan of Redinho’s work. We made this track together in London. It highlights our shared love of warped funk and groove royals like Prince and Janet Jackson. For me, the song explores the push and pull of human desire for intimacy, the tension and power of touch, and a liberation of the senses. I’m about to start recording my third album, which is already going in new directions for me, but I really wanted to share this song before I embark on that new endeavor.”
The song can be watched below.
Kimbra made a feature on last year’s El Rey Theatre in order to promote her second album.
