Kelis is independent.
After battling for her voice to be heard within the major label structure, the American artist recently penned a deal with British imprint Ninja Tune.
New album 'Food' will be released on April 21st, with the singer working with producer Dave Sitek throughout the recording process.
Ahead of this, new cut 'Rumble' has emerged online. It's an old fashioned soul stomper, reminiscent of late 60s Stax - when hair got longer and beats got funky but without losing that Southern soul template.
Check it out below.
Kelis has confirmed the following UK shows:
28 Manchester 6 Music Festival
10 Brighton The Great Escape
