Aussie production duo Hermitude have shared their new single ‘Janela’, a collaboration with New Zealand singer Kimbra.
The R&B-leaning cut is taken from the duo’s forthcoming, newly-announced deluxe edition of 2019 album ‘Pollyanarchy’. It’s their third single this year, following ‘Spotlight‘ alongside Daniel Bedingfield and their 4/20 themed track ‘Too High‘.
Stream the collaboration below:
The deluxe edition of ‘Pollyanarchy’ is due to arrive November 13, and will include both ‘Janela’ and ‘Spotlight’. Two more songs – featuring Drew Love (THEY.) and Kameron Alexander – will also appear.
A limited-edition vinyl of the four additional tracks, titled ‘Extrapollyanarchy’, is available to order now, with the duo describing it as a “companion piece” featuring “tracks that weren’t quite finished when it was time to put the album out”.
For Kimbra, the collab marks her second release of the year, after she hopped on Jacob Collier’s track ‘In My Bones’, alongside Tank and the Bangas.
Apart from that, she has been relatively quiet since the release of her third studio album in 2018, ‘Primal Heart’.

Featuring co-writing efforts from Skrillex and Natasha Bedingfield, who is the sister of aforementioned artist Daniel Bedingfield, ‘Primal Heart’ marked Kimbra’s first full-length in four years, following 2014’s ‘The Golden Echo’.
“The time and deliberation taken by Kimbra on ‘Primal Heart’ shows, as on album three she’s truly hit her stride,” NME said of ‘Primal Heart’ in a four-star review.
“Throughout she offers up rich, swirling instrumentals and intricate musical landscapes, crunchy chord progressions and twinkling chromaticism complemented by her confident, warm vocals.”
