Kelela Returns With “Washed Away” Single

blame it on Meka September 13, 2022

Her first new offering since her 2017 debut album, Take Me Apart, Kelela returns with the single “Washed Away.”

“I love a banger, but for the first point of contact out of my hiatus, it felt more honest to lead with an ambient heart-check,” she says about the track. “I specifically want to speak to marginalized Black folk and highlight the work we do to find renewal in a world that’s built to make us feel inadequate. This song is the soundtrack to the relief we find after going inward.”

(This is a banger, by the way.)
