Kimbra's Ode To Nina

    Kimbra, the world's most adorable (not to mention talented) Kiwi, included a version of Nina Simone's "Plain Gold Ring" on her impressive debut album, Vows; an ode to a legendary artist that has apparently haunted the New Zealand pop singer over the years. Here, with the camera's rolling for Billboard, she constructs a somewhat minimal live rendition of the song. It's all sorts of soulful with some obvious jazz undertones. But then there's Kimbra's signature, electro sheen coating the whole thing. And her drummer's tee is outrageous too, so yeah...have a look and listen.

    Vows is available now via Warner Bros.
