Kelis unveils 'Rumble' video, announces London show

The R&B singer releases her new album 'Food' on April 21

Kelis has unveiled the video for her new single, 'Rumble'.

The track comes from her new album, 'Food', which is set for release on April 21. Click above to watch the video, which was directed by Christian Lamb. 'Rumble' is released on April 14. The R&B singer has signed to UK based experimental label Ninja Tune for the record. Speaking to NME, Kelis called the vintage soul album "really honest". She added: "It's extremely melodic and it's kind of funny at times. I think is my favourite album. But I always say that."

Kelis will bring the album to Wilton's Music Hall in London on May 8 ahead of an appearance at Brighton's The Great Escape on May 10 at the Dome. She will return to the UK for a gig at London Somerset House on July 14 and will appear at Latitude Festival the following weekend.

Last year Kelis debuted the song 'Jerk Ribs'. Other songs set for the album include 'Breakfast', 'Cobbler' and 'Friday Fish Fry'. The follow-up to 2010's 'Flesh Tone' has been produced by TV On The Radio's Dave Sitek. Speaking about working with Sitek, Kelis commented: "He's a genius. He's brilliant enough to step back when he should, and that's the sign of a really amazing producer. We hardly ever talk about music, we just make it."
