    It's almost Kimbra "go" time! The singer will release her new album The Golden Echo on Warner Bros. Records on August 19. And what do sheep have to do with it? Well, we'll tell you.

    It's a modern pop record that is ambitious, sophisticated and complex, just like its creator. The New Zealand-born singer and songwriter wrote the songs in her bedroom studio on a farm in the Silver Lake neighborhood of Los Angeles, where she was surrounded by sheep and lambs owned by her landlady.

    How zoo'ish!

    "It was a very humbling experience," says Kimbra, who moved in the day after winning two Grammy Awards, including "Record of the Year," for the No. 1 single "Somebody That I Used to Know" with Gotye. "I had just been through the Gotye stuff and the Grammys, and all the touring. You get very wrapped up in it all. Then you're chilling with a bunch of sheep, and they don't give a crap who you are."

    Sheep! Pop Music! Yay!
