Bloc Party’s Kele Okereke announces new album with single 'Streets Been Talkin''


Kele Okereke has announced his new album Fatherland, set for release October 6 via BMG.

Fatherland sees Okereke challenge himself musically in what he’s described as the most adventurous chapter of his ever-evolving career, and includes duets with Olly Alexander of Years & Years and Corinne Bailey Rae.

‘Streets Been Talkin” from the forthcoming album is available now to stream and download. The track “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.”
