New Album 'Food' Out Now & Worldwide Tour

Kelis - New Album 'Food' Out Now & Worldwide Tour

“Boisterous, fun as fuck soul rework” - Vice 8/10

"A fabulous and immediate record" - Clash 8/10

"Sizzling" - The Observer (Album of the Week)

"A steamy musical stew of old soul funkiness seasoned for a modern palate.” - The Telegraph 5/5

Kelis' sixth studio album, Food is out now and available worldwide on 2LP, CD and digitally from the Ninjashop, iTunes and Amazon, also yours to stream in full on Spotify,Rdio and Deezer.

Kelis describes the album as "a kind of unspoken lovefest”, involving two unlikely partners; it is a startling combination of her most frank and vulnerable vocals to date, with Dave Sitek's inimitable sonic imprint. Littered with transcendent, Spector-esque lift, warm bottom ends and vast depth, the music is the perfect backdrop for Kelis’ unique voice. The latter has only improved with time and experience, and the album candidly explores pain, happiness and everything in between.

Recorded at Sitek’s house in LA (and entirely produced by him), the album mints a sound that’s rootsy without ever being self-consciously retro, that pitches live horns and gospel organ against electronics, that for all its classic soul and funk influences, couldn’t have been made any time but now.

Next month Kelis embarks on a worldwide including performances on Glastonbury's Pyramid Stage, headline slots at Brighton's Great Escape and Somerset House, plus an intimate showcase at London's oldest surviving Music Hall, Wilton's, with many more to be announced - see full dates below.
