KelisKelis has always played by her own rules (OK some of her recent material felt a little like her playing the pop game, but still she is an “artist”).

2014 is a reinvention year for Kelis Rogers – she is signed to UK independent label Ninja Tune (home to an array of mind-melting, genre-bending sounds for almost 25 years) and is in an unlikely creative partnership with Dave Sitek, the guy who made TV On The Radio sound so incredible.

The main course will be served in April as new album Food is released. In the meantime there’s the starter of first single ‘Jerk Ribs’, a echoing, transcendental soul cut. Sitek’s production proves the perfect aural seasoning for Kelis unique vocal dish.

OK, enough of the food puns. Give ‘Jerk Ribs’ a listen...
