New album, out in 2018! Source: her facebook and instagram profiles

Putting it in urban/r&b because that was mostly the style of her last single and album... in case she switches it up, I'll request to move it to pop!



Last year's single, most likely on this album.

The entire album is produced by John Congleton.

We get another The Ride (Nelly Furtado).

This is definitely the strongest Kate Bush rip-off I've heard for a loooooong time. :lol:

And a refreshing contribution to the pop scene.

The atmosphere of the album will be very ethereal and outerworldly I suppose.

A ballad from her. Not sure if I like her voice for these kind of sparse ballads, but it's quite pretty

Cool one, maybe my fave so far. Though I can't say I'm enamoured by anything from this era as I was from The Golden Echo

Damn. :o

What a strong, fast-paced and BEAUTIFUL album!!

This has to be the best Kimbra record to date!

I am on my second spin and there is so much to discover still.

I absolutely LOVE Lightyears.

On 1st listen: not as amazing as The Golden Echo, but seems nice. None of her albums are instant for me, so I’ll give it some time.

So far my standout is Past Love. Actually the album has quite a number of interesting songs that would’ve been better leads than Everybody Knows.

Need to listen more to develop a strong opinion.

My favs (besides the songs that were released) are Recovery, Black Sky, Past Love, Right Direction and Real Life.

But this album is pretty dope. The first project I've checked out from her. I dig it a lot.

Yes, it‘s fantastic! Her last album had some really annoying moments but Primal Heart is so consistent in melody and production.

My current favourite is Black Sky.

this can be moved to Pop actually, I opened it here as I first thought it would follow the style of The Golden Echo and Sweet Relief, but it's more of a return to her earlier pop sound

I'm not over the moon about this one. It's good and has some catchy moments, definitely enjoyable, but overall lacks the brilliance and cohesiveness that TGE had. That one was a crazy futuristic r&b masterpiece start to finish and had a certain atmosphere about it.

This one feels like a collection of solid songs and that's it.

That said, love some songs on it, especially the Lightyears - Black Sky - Past Love trio

I hate The Golden Echo because I think it has very annoying moments on it.

Primal Heart for me is much more consistent and less eccentric.
