New albums released today (April 21): Kelis, Iggy Azalea and more

New albums by Eels, Future and Fear Of Men also available

Kelis, Future and Iggy Azalea lead this week’s list of new album releases (April 21).

R&B singer Kelis has signed to UK label Ninja Tune for her album ‘Food’. 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.”

Iggy Azalea‘s debut album ‘The New Classic’ features appearances from Rita Ora, Charli XCX and Mavado as well as Azalea’s label boss and rapper, T.I. The album was due for release in October 2013 but has been the victim of multiple delays.

Future’s album ‘Honest’ is also released today. The album, which is the follow up to 2012 release ‘Pluto’ includes the Pharrell and Pusha T collaboration ‘Move That Dope’ as well as appearances from Kanye West, Drake, Wiz Khalifa, and Andre 3000.
