Fans are readily awaiting the October 6 (that’s just one sleep, for Aussie folks) release of Kelela‘s forthcoming debut album ‘Take Me Apart’, and the Washington-based chanteuse has added fuel to the anticipation fire with the release of hot single number three, “Waitin”. The new LP is the follow-up to her 2015 ‘Hallucinogen’ EP, 2013 ‘Cut 4 Me’ mixtape— which introduced a slick fusion of dance beats with RnB sensibilities — and two features on Gorillaz‘ album ‘Humanz’ earlier this year.
“Waitin” is an ode to old flames, and pits effervescent ’90s beats with Kelela’s smooth vocals against an unshakeable melody. Our girl is set to kick off a huge North America X Europe album tour, before heading to Oz in early Jan to support The XX alongside Earl Sweatshirt.
