Kimbra Releases New Song “Different Story” from “A Reckoning” Deluxe Edition
Back in January, New Zealand singer-songwriter Kimbra released her fourth studio album “A Reckoning”.
It is her first album in five years since the 2018 album “Primal Heart”. Also, it is the first release as an independent artist.
On December 8, she released the deluxe edition of the album.
The deluxe edition comprises a 13-track, including the previous 10 songs and three new songs.
From the deluxe edition, she released a new song “Different Story” along with a music video on the same day.
The track was written by Kimbra, and Ryan Lott who also produced it. The accompanying video was created by Patrick Rowe.
Kimbra said of the song, “Different Story is about the connection we find through our shared suffering. It's about learning to listen to what is being said, not the stories about what is being said or the echoes of our own suffering. Learning to respond instead of react.”
- She continued, “The more we make room for our own pain, the deeper our capacity grows to hold the pain and vulnerability in others. We recognize ourselves in them. We have touched the same grief. We have known the same fear.”
She added, “This was the song that helped me back to basic human gesture, to put aside the noise and just be present to the person right in front of me.”
Kimbra explained about another two songs for the deluxe edition.
“I wrote this with Patrick Wimberly of the amazing band CHAIRLIFT and produced it with none other than Ryan Lott of Son Lux who helped create the relentless, swirling sound world. With this song I wanted to capture the oppressive nature of feeling like a prisoner in your own country.”
“I'm so excited to share this one, I debuted it live in Japan and have been itching to get it out ever since. Sonically it couldn't be more different from Possession so get ready for a slow burn. The Robin is about starting again and the closing of chapters to bring about the opening of new ones. I feel like this is a central theme on A Reckoning.”
