Pop singer Kimbra has shared the previously unreleased track “Secret Tapes”, a song originally meant for her 2018 full-length, Primal Heart.
For the single, the musician teamed up with sound designer Rachel Alix and used iZotope’s latest software plugin Neutron 3 to self-mix the tune. The synth-driven, bass-heavy tune thumps along at an even-keeled pop speed as Kimbra sings the lines, “They won’t let me go/ They won’t let me rest in peace/ Are you my endorphin or my enemy?” Hear the full track via the artist’s newly launched Patreon page.
