Kelis has premiered her new track 'Distance' via a youth-led London radio station.

The 'Milkshake' singer's new song, which has been produced by Magnetic Man's Skream, was unveiled on DJ Nikki Beatnik's Reprezent Radio show last night (June 30). Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click to listen to the track.

The track is from her forthcoming, yet-untitled sixth album. The new record is the follow-up to 2010's 'Flesh Tone' and is likely to include further collaborations with Skream.

On working with the dubstep producer, Kelis recently told NME: " I was working with a friend of mine and she said 'Skream's got this great track for you, can I get him to send it?'. So I said yes and then he sent that track and something else. I've been on a real 1990s vibe with this record, it's kind of trip-hoppish. So I wrote a track to that."

Kelis spoke to NME at this year's Isle Of Wight Festival in a video which you can see at the top of the page and opened up about her progress in writing her new album, which she says is "midway through".

Asked about this, she said: "It depends what day you ask me, some days I'm like 'It's 80% done' and other days when I say 'I'm 40% done'. I'm sort of midway I guess. It's exciting though, it's more electro, it's a little deeper and darker."
