Muse's Matt Bellamy Set to Appear on New Kimbra Album
Muse's Matt Bellamy is set to feature on the new album from New Zealand singer Kimbra.

AsĀ Gigwise notes, Kimbra, best known for featuring on Gotye's huge 2011 single "Somebody That I Used to Know," recorded at least one song with Bellamy for her second solo album.

News of the collaboration was revealed in a press release for the singer's co-headline tour with Janelle Monae, which listed confirmed album collaborators including Van Dyke Parks, Thundercat, Mark Foster, John Legend and Matt Bellamy. The singer is also reported to have worked with Queens of the Stone Age, Dirty Projectors and Unknown Mortal Orchestra on new material.

According to Faster Louder, Bellamy visited the studio and ended up laying down guitar on what is rumoured to be the album's first single.

Speaking in an interview with Faster Louder, Kimbra said: "What united all of the people I've worked with on this record is the love of a great song, the love of a great melody, the love of a potent lyric, or a hypnotic drum beat."

Also, the track will mark the Muse frontman's first ever collaboration with the other artist.

Kimbra released her debut solo album "Vows" in 2011, which featured the singles "Settle Down" and "Cameo Lover."

Meanwhile, Muse performed a tribute cover of the Nirvana song "Lithium" last week during their Lollapalooza set, to mark the 20th anniversary of Kurt Cobain's death.
