Kele Okereke has released solo track 'Yemaya' - check it out now.
The Bloc Party frontman announce a flurry of intimate solo shows, due to kick off next month.
The British artist has released two solo records in the past, but new cut 'Yemaya' seems to indicate a nimble sideways step.
Online now, there's a sense of frailty at work here, and it's markedly different from previous work.
Kele explains: “In the west African Yoruba religion, Yemaya is the mother goddess of the ocean, she is kinda the patron saint of pregnant women and fertility”.
“According to myth, when her waters broke, it caused a great flood creating rivers and streams and the first mortal humans were created from her womb. When I knew we were having a baby she started to be appear in my thoughts and dreams a fair bit.”
Tune in now.
Kele Okereke is set to play London venue St. Pancras Church on May 22nd.
