She’s back with her first studio album since 2017’s Take Me Apart.
Kelela has shared plans for her long-awaited second studio album, Raven, due on February 10 via Warp Records.
The fifteen-track album promises to “explore autonomy, belonging and self-renewal as healing”. You can hear “On The Run”, a new single, below.
“I started this process from the feeling of isolation and alienation I’ve always had as a black femme in dance music, despite its black origins,” Kelela explains about the project. “RAVEN is my first breath taken in the dark, an affirmation of black femme perspective in the midst of systemic erasure and the sound of our vulnerability turned to power”.
Raven is available for pre-order on black and clear vinyl now.
