Kelela has released one last treat ahead of her debut album's release. Blue Light is drenched in smooth synths and velvety melodies, "I'm on my way right now," Kelela sings, "baby keep the blue light on." She's actually been performing the song live for some time, as early as February this year.
The first single from Take Me Apart, LMK, discussed modern relationships and sex. As shared in a behind-the-scenes video. Kelela described the track as an "anthem" to respectful, no-strings-attached hook-ups. The second single, Frontline, debuted on HBO and Issa Rae's Insecure, while third single Waitin, debuted earlier is week, is an ode to those post-breakup encounters with exes.
Take Me Apart is set for release on 6 October, listen to Blue Light below.
