Preview Kelis’ Delicious New Album ‘Food’
Inertia is excited to announce the release of the brand new album from the forward thinking and influential songstress, Kelis. Titled ‘Food’, the album was produced by Dave Sitek of TV on the Radio, and mints a sound that’s rootsy without ever being self-consciously retro, that pitches live horns and gospel-y organ against electronics, which for all its classic soul and funk influences, couldn’t have been made any time but now.
‘Food’ explores the experiences of pain, happiness and everything in between. Not only does it highlight Kelis’ most frank and vulnerable vocals to date, but also Sitek’s imitable sonic imprint. Littered with transcendent, Spector-esque lift, warm bottom ends and vast depth, the music is the perfect backdrop for Kelis’ unique voice. It’s clear with this album that as an artist she only improves with time and experience.
Check out the incredible first single “Jerk Ribs”, which is available for free download here.

‘Food’ is out 18th April 2014 on Ninja Tune through Inertia
