Kelis‘ new album ‘Food’ is streaming online ahead of its release. Scroll down to listen now.
The R&B singer has signed to UK label Ninja Tune for the record, which is released on April 21.
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.”
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.”
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.
