Kimbra has revealed the release date for her upcoming album, The Golden Echo.

The Kiwi singer will drop the album on August 15, featuring her already popular single, 90s Music.

On Tuesday, the singer tweeted her excitement that the song's video had already received over 200,000 views on YouTube.

"Dang! The clips nearly up to 200k views already! Chur peeps.... Spread that love!" she tweeted.

In the video, Kimbra is seen referencing the fashion and iconography of the 1990s: VHS video tapes are used and she wears neon clothes and platformed trainers that would make the Spice Girls proud.

In the catchy song, she sings about listening to 90s music and mentions bands associated with the decade, including TLC, R Kelly and Mary Blige.

Kimbra got to work with one of her dream collaborators, Rich Costey (Foster The People, Interpol, Muse) who produced the album.

The singer revealed she would be releasing three songs, High Places, 90s Music, and Nothing But You, to anyone who pre orders the album.

The Golden Echo is the singer's second album. Her 2011 debut, Vows, was certified platinum in Australia and New Zealand.

Kimbra recently had to cancel Australian performances with American R&B singer, Janelle Monae after Monae fell ill.
