Thank. GOD. I’m STARVING. Where the hell has Kelis been for the last four years?!? We’ve all been WASTING away over here, suffering through endless climate change bullshit and less-robust-than-advertised job markets and cheap-ass, calorie-thin Macklemore hits! We’re positively dying for some more of the good fatty funk stuff!
Thankfully, we’re about to get our asses sated to the max. See, her new album, entitled Food, is due next week (April 22). Not only that, but the whole thing was produced by TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek (and recorded at his place in L.A.) and is coming to us via Ninja Tune (in fact, the press release says that the recipe mixes “live horns and gospel organ [with] electronics,” and damned if that doesn’t make the whole situation sound even more delicious!).
But yo, best part is? We don’t even have to wait until next week for the buffet to open up. The whole album is streaming now over at NPR and is available for pre-order on some food blog called “Apple.” And we can also get a taste of the album via this live cut of new track “Friday Fish Fry,” recorded live at KCRW last month! Cool. Whatever! Just give it to me. Now now now. Nom nom nom… oh yeah, nomnom… she’s also touring some this summer… nom nom…
