Atmospheric R&B artist Kelela has announced her debut album. On October 6, she’ll release Take Me Apart via Warp. The first single from the album is “LMK,” which you can stream below. That’s the album’s cover art above.
“Despite it being a personal record, the politics of my identity informs how it sounds and how I choose to articulate my vulnerability and strength,” Kelela said about this album in a statement. “I am a black woman, a second-generation Ethiopian-American, who grew up in the ’burbs listening to R&B, jazz and Björk. All of it comes out in one way or another.”
Take Me Apart follows Kelela’s 2015 EP, Hallucinogen.
