Kelis Signs To Ninja Tune

December 11th, 2013


Ninja Tune are proud to announce the worldwide signing of Kelis, and her new album, ‘Food’.
Entirely produced by Dave Sitek (founder of TV On The Radio and producer for the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Liars and Foals amongst others), the album is a homecoming for Kelis: a soul record that’s as raw and alternative as it is classic. Ninja Tune were blown away by the record, and leapt at the chance to work with a legend that’s always had a forward-thinking sound and oozed style.

Food‘ is a startling combination of Kelis’ most frank and vulnerable vocals to date, and Sitek’s inimitable sonic imprint. Littered with transcendent, Spector-esque lift, warm bottom ends and vast depth, the music is the perfect backdrop for Kelis’ unique voice. The latter has only improved with time and experience, and the album candidly explores pain, happiness and everything in between. ‘Food‘ will be released in Spring 2014.
