Her clip for first Australian single ‘Settle Down’ has been selected as this week’s iTunes feature video in the US.

While ‘Settle Down’ was the song which kicked off her career in Australia and was the lead single from her debut, Gold-selling album Vows, her first release in the US will be a ‘Settle Down’ EP.

The EP also features ‘Cameo Lover’, a remix of album track ‘Limbo’ by Sam Sparro and Golden Touch, and a live cover of Nina Simone’s ‘Plain Gold Ring’.

Earlier in the year she signed to Warner Bros in the US, who say that she’s working with producers and songwriters as Mike Elizondo, Greg Wells, Greg Kurstin, and John Hill on her “debut”, which will be released there in ‘Spring/Summer’ 2012, a year and a half after Vows was released in Australia.

Kimbra’s latest win was scoring two ARIAs: one for Best Female Artist and one for her contribution to Gotye’s Single Of The Year ‘Somebody That I Used To Know’.
