Kimbra Returns With Funky New Song ‘Sweet Relief’

Kimbra has side-swiped everyone by planting a brand new tune on the internet today after only briefly teasing the existence of new material.

The Kiwi chanteuse’s new track is a funky little pop number dubbed Sweet Relief and it’s packing some serious Prince vibes.

K-unit has basically done the musical equivalent of a knock and run, dumping the fresh track on our doorstep and then bolting with no explanation, so we have no idea right now whether this is a mere stand-alone single or possibly part of something bigger?

What we do know is that Sweet Relief marks the first new tune we’ve heard from Kimbra in two years, since 2014’s Golden Echo.

According to her Instagram account, Kimbra’s been busy in an LA studio recently, after teasing a huge all-star collab with Skrillex, Miguel, and Thundercat last year, so our hopes for a new album are pretty damn high.

While we wait to hear more news, wrap your ears around her new one, Sweet Relief, below.
