Bloc Party frontman Kele Okereke has released his new solo single 'What Did I Do' online, scroll down to the bottom of the page and click to watch the video.

The track is taken from Okereke's new solo EP 'The Hunter', which is due for release on October 31. It features Lucy Taylor on lead vocals alongside the singer. Other collaborators on the EP include Sub Focus, Fred Falke, RAC and QNESS.

Okereke revealed earlier in the week that he is unsure of his future in Bloc Party after the rest of the group went into the recording studio without telling him.

The singer told NME he recently spotted guitarist Russell Lissack, bassist Gordon Moakes and drummer Matt Tong outside a rehearsal studio in New York and he wasn't even invited to take part in the sessions.

"I was actually having lunch about three weeks ago, just here on 8th Avenue and I saw somebody walk past and I recognised the haircut," he said. "It was Russell. I was like, 'Hey!' but he didn't see me and I followed him around the corner and then I saw Matt, Gordon and Russell all standing outside this rehearsal space. They all went inside."

He added: "I hope I haven't been fired. I don't really know what's going on, because we haven't really spoken recently and I'm a bit too scared to ask."

For an update on the situation with Bloc Party, pick up next week's issue of NME, which is on UK newsstands next Wednesday (September 28) or available digitally.
