Kelela takes yet another victory lap, announces European and US tour dates

Digital R&B songstress Kelela has announced new tour dates for the upcoming fall. In what reportedly is the last leg of a tour devoted to showcase 2013’s great mixtape CUT 4 ME, the D.C.-born singer will be performing in the European festival circuit, as well as some US towns. She will next start recording her debut LP, which is scheduled for release in early 2015.

But Kelela hasn’t just basked in the critical acclaim CUT 4 ME has garnered. She’s kept busy working with Kindness, Gifted & Blessed, DJ Dahi, and Le1f, wisely expanding her rolodex with interesting producers and DJs to collaborate with in her upcoming album. One of the biggest reasons why Kelela still is futuristic R&B’s greatest hope is the way she embraces extravagant production in her tracks, with Napolian, Morri$, Bok Bok, Girl Unit, and NGUZUNGUZU taking care of the beats in CUT 4 ME. If you add Kelela’s sultry, soulful vocals to that mix, there’s just no going wrong.

Likeminded hip-hop/dance/R&B artists Future Brown, Shura, Novelist, Lafawndah, and Chynna will join Kelela for select dates, which you can check in detail below.
