KELE OKEREKE Outside the bloc party

Kele Okereke, frontman for UK indie rock group Bloc Party is set to release his third solo record, Fatherland. The album is credited under his full name and is stylistically different from his two previous electronica based albums, The Boxer and Trick. 

Streets Been Talking is the first song lifted from the record. Check it out below.

Streets Been Talking was one of the first tracks I wrote for the album,” says Kele. “It’s a bittersweet ode to romance and the passing of time.”

The album is inspired by his journey into fatherhood, detailing the period leading up to the birth of his daughter Savannah in December 2016.

“I’m fully conscious that this record is probably going to serve as a document for Savannah, of the relationship between her fathers and who we were before she came into our lives,” says Kele. “It feels important for her to see that we don’t have all the answers but we’re trying.”

Streets Been Talkin’ is out now. Fatherland is out October 6.
