Kimbra Releases Original Artwork For Each The Golden Echo Track
  • FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 12, 2014

  • Posted by: K. Hess

Grammy winner, and New Zealand native, Kimbra has released the original artwork she commissioned for her sophomore LP The Golden Echo, out now via Warner Bros Records Inc.. Each track corresponds with an original piece, each piece was done by a different artist, and each artist (with minor exceptions) seems to find Kimbra's music sort of creepy. From a scary sad clown girl trying not to pee her pants, to a severed hand upon which is perched a living wind-up cardinal; each piece flirts with the grotesque—that is, if it doesn't make sweet, sweet love to it.

The works premiered at a recent intimate event in LA, before making their online debut via Idolator.

Creepy though the vibe may be, it's a gorgeous collection. In track order:
