Kimbra Releases Skrillex Produced New Single ‘Top Of The World’




Kimbra - Primal Heart


Two-time Grammy Award-winning, critically acclaimed songstress Kimbra unveils her latest single ‘Top of the World’, co-produced by Skrillex. The track is taken from her third full-length album, PRIMAL HEART — produced by Kimbra and John Congleton (Future Islands, John Grant and St Vincent)—which will be released January 19, 2018.


Listen to Kimbra’s ‘Top of the World’


‘Top of the World’ stands out as a dynamic and hypnotizing anthem, inspired as much by bass heavy beats as it is global grooves. The track follows hot on the heels of ‘Everybody Knows.’ Within six weeks, the song has had over a million streams on Spotify and generated more than 340,000 YouTube views.

 This week Oslo-based duo Apothek chose to rework ‘Everybody Knows’. The accompanying music video, directed by Chester Travis shows a poignant and thought-provoking look at domestic violence, highlighting both sides of oppression. Of the rework, Kimbra says ‘It evoked new depth in the lyrics and had this hypnotizing patience to it with a quiet kind of violence and also a soft, strange intimacy. I felt like I was hearing the song & its meaning (even to myself) in a whole new way.”

 Kimbra’s voice seeped into the hearts and minds of listeners around the globe in 2012. She dueted with Gotye on the inescapable 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. Her debut album VOWS reached number 14 on the Billboard Top 200 and was certified platinum in Australia and New Zealand, yielding hits such as ‘Settle Down’ and ‘Cameo Lover’. She confidently stepped into the spotlight on her second full-length, THE GOLDEN ECHO, which saw her collaborate with artists such as ThundercatMUSE’s Matt Bellamy and John Legend, a testament to her eclectic musical style. Last year also saw her perform with The Roots and David Byrne at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony, in tribute of David Bowie.
