Shares short film by director Cieron Magat.

While information about Kelela’s debut album is still scarce, the L.A.-via-D.C. singer appears on the latest cover of Dazed where she mentions she’ll be working on the project with previous collaborators Arca, Jam City and Bok Bok. The interview goes in depth into her songwriting process, where she says: “I like that duality. Emo and rave have been a thing since early on! It’s that euphoric, crying-in-the-club moment. It’s drugs, without the drugs…just the music.”

The piece comes in conjunction with a video called ‘Interlude’ directed by Cieron Magat and previews new music from Kelela. She also reveals that she was a cheerleader her senior year of high school. Watch below.
