Kele Okereke of Bloc Party channels D'Angelo's "How Does It Feel" and the Nine Inch Nails—with a touch of Kraftwerk—in the music video for his new single "Tenderoni." It's from his new solo album The Boxer scheduled to drop June 22.
Arjan Writes:"While taking time off from Bloc Party, Kele took the opportunity to book his own studio time to explore new sounds, 'I plugged in synths with no idea what they would do. It was completely back to the drawing board. It was exciting and terrifying,' he explains in a press release. 'The key for the sound of the record was to take things as harsh and as physical as I could make them. These are the sounds that make me happiest in the world.'"
After more or less coming out in 2007 and publicly discussing his sexuality last month in Butt Magazine, Okereke has apparently also made some change in his musical tastes. The heavy synth track and sensual video is a marked departure from the alt pop Bloc Party.
