Bloc Party’s Kele Okereke (formerly known just as Kele) has announced a new solo album, his third: Fatherland. The LP includes features from Corrine Bailey Rae and Olly Alexander of Years and Years.
Accompanying the announcement, Okereke has shared a new single, “Streets Been Talkin’,” which follows the release of “Yemaya” earlier this year.
“Streets Been Talking was one of the first tracks I wrote for the album,” said Kele in a statement. “It’s a bittersweet ode to romance and the passing of time.”
