In October 2013, a vocalist named Kelela arose from the mist of obscurity with Cut 4 Me, a transcendent collection of songs that combined dance music with R&B to make something so sweet, so succulent, that it got repackaged into a retail album six months later. Then, she disappeared.
Last year she resurfaced with “A Message,” a new song produced and co-written by Arca. Now she’s announced her Hallucinogen EP is set to drop October 9th on her Cherry Coffee imprint via Warp, and with the announcement comes an incredible new song, “Rewind.” It’s her end of summer record, and it makes us want to run through the hills wild and free with the wind at our backs. Do yourself a favor and listen to it above, then watch the video for “A Message” below. You can pre-order Hallucinogen right here.
