Kelela announced today her highly anticipated debut album, Take Me Apart, due out October 6 on Warp Records.
The project's lead single, "LMK," is a smooth, seductive anthem for independent women that subverts the heteronormative construct that all women went to settle down--an attitude captured on Take Me Apart's artwork, where Kelela sits nude with her dreads falling proudly to the floor.
"It ain't that deep by the way," she sings with self-confidence on "LMK" above hazey R&B production. "No one's tryna settle down. All you gotta do is let me know."
Take Me Apart follows Kelela's acclaimed Cut 4 Me mixtape and Hallucinogen EP, both of which secured her as a rising star with standout singles, "Rewind," and, "Bank Head."
