If you’re as much a fan of Bloc Party as I am, then any hint of a release is good news. To be fair, not everything they’ve released has been as entertaining as their first knock out album (Silent Alarm [2005]), but I can roll with that. Their last album, Hymns (2016) displayed a strong respect toward dance music. The first single (“The Love Within”) was musically delightful (at least to me).

On October 6, BMG Records has announced the solo album release for Bloc Party’s main singer, Kele Okereke. The new album is called Fatherland, and will contain thirteen new songs, two of them with guest singers. The two songs are “Versions Of Us” with Corinne Bailey Rae, and “Grounds For Resentment” with Olly Alexander.

Previously, KeleĀ OkerekeĀ has released two solo albums, The Boxer (2010), and Trick (2014). Both were released under the name Kele.

Fatherland will be issued as CD, DD, and vinyl LP.
