Kelis streams new album ‘Food’ – listen

US singer's latest album was produced by TV On The Radio's Dave Sitek

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.
