New KELE single : Coasting + Europe Tour Announced!


Kele Okereke has been keeping busy reviving his solo career as he has released the official audio for his second single, ‘Coasting’ off his incoming sophomore release, ‘Trick’.

These new tracks from Kele have been very deep-house oriented, a different focus than his previous works, sounding more like his DJ’ed EPs on the Crosstown Records label. ‘Coasting’ was beautifully constructed with heavy electronic instrumentation and the delicate falsetto of Okereke.

You can get both singles, ‘Coasting’ and ‘Doubt’ downloaded free instantly if you pre-order the new album, ‘Trick’ here.


And Kele has finally announced his first leg of his tour in support of his new album in Europe! His new setup, a lot of DJ oriented equipment, less synthesizers and instruments than his band used on ‘The Boxer’ tour.

Okereke on the announcement of his tour:

"I will be performing tracks from new album TRICK as well as tracks from my previous records, expect some surprises.

A lot of the inspiration for TRICK came from my late night DJ sets,
so it made sense for me that for my first run of shows I would be performing my record live in clubs all over Europe.”

What Music Means To Me

"Some people have lives; some people have music." - John Green, Will Grayson, Will Grayson.

"If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music." - Albert Einstein.

"Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything." - Plato.

These quotes from some of the most influential people of our time and the times before us only begin to illustrate and define the depth and meaning behind the art of song. Music has always been a defining element in the framework of society, but as the decades pass, the reliability and significance that music possesses has bloomed into something far greater than just background noise.
