The show will see Kimbra take over the Gasometer during her visit to Australia as a special guest on David Byrne’s upcoming American Utopia tour. It’s been a short time between visits for Kimbra, who was in Australia earlier this year for a headline tour in support of her third album, Primal Heart.
“It is a special kind of show that I haven’t done before performing some of my songs in an entirely new way, incorporating upright bass and piano,” said Kimbra.
Following the release of Primal Heart, Kimbra returned to the studio and has today released the resulting body of work, new EP Songs From Primal Heart, Reimagined. The collection sees the singer recreate four songs from the 2018 album acoustically.
“My album Primal Heart was a record that allowed me to open up in so many new ways,” she said. “I wanted to keep pushing the potential of how these songs could be heard.”
An Intimate, Reimagined Evening with Kimbra will take place at Melbourne’s Gasometer Hotel on Thursday November 22. Presale begins at 12pm on Monday October 29, with general sale tickets available from 1pm Tuesday October 30 via Live Nation.
