Kelela surfs the Take Me Apart success wave around the globe, announces imminent tour dates
Hope she's packing a jacket.

It didn’t make our list of year-end favorites, but I’m willing to usurp the consensus view of the TMT staff and unilaterally make Kelela’s Take Me Apart our (unofficial) 51st favorite album of 2017!

A highlight among Take Me Apart’s numbered memories was the track “Blue Light,” where Kelela sang about letting the “chains” “fall down” and submitting to a passionate love. Fans in multiple continents would do well to drop their own chains and realize the wonderfulness imbued in Take Me Apart, especially since chains are especially inhibitive when it comes to going out in public! Those heavy shackles will simply need to be shed if you plan on catching one of Kelela’s just announced shows in Oceania, Europe, or stateside in the coming months.

The shows — which kick off TOMORROW, btw — are relatively few in number given the number of miles she’s racking up in the process, but I guess you probably need a lot of time to recuperate between gigs when you’re in the labor-intensive business of making audience members melt into a pool that requires mopping up afterwards. Those poor venue janitors…
