What is your single about?

‘Miracle’ is a song about the feeling of abandonment and joy and how a moment can seem very ordinary but then someone comes along and completely transforms it for you.

Where did you record this single, and who helped you out?

‘Miracle’, and the songs on THE GOLDEN ECHO , were written in a bedroom studio on a city-farm in the Silver Lake neighbourhood of Los Angeles, surrounded by chickens and sheep. 

Musicians on the album include drummer John JR Robinson, (Michael Jackson's main studio drummer), bassist Thundercat, R&B singer Bilal, Daniel Johns (Silverchair), Queens Of The Stone Age bassist Michael Shuman, and mega-star John Legend.

Have you got a video out, if so what is the theme/story behind the video?

The colourful video for ‘Miracle’ features a jubilant Kimbra dancing through the streets of New York, joined by everyone from mimes to mailmen in the grand finale. The track features collaborators Thundercat and Daniel Johns (Silverchair).
