Kele Releases New Song ‘Nineveh’

    Kele has shared a new track from his upcoming solo album The Waves Pt. 1. Check out ‘Nineveh’ below.

    “With all the time spent at home last year I spent a lot of time thinking about the people that are no longer in my life, people that I have left behind,” the Bloc Party frontman said of ‘Nineveh’ in a press release. “This song is an ode to that idea – the realisation that, however hard it is, sometimes you have to move on. Although there is much written about the sadness of relationships ending (be they romantic or platonic relationships), there can be something quite empowering about saying ‘enough is enough’ and drawing a line in the sand. I wanted to try and express that somehow in the music. There is an undoubtable sadness in the first half of ‘Nineveh’ but that sadness is turned into pure exhilaration in the second half of the song, like a proverbial weight being lifted from one’s neck. It ends in a place of optimism.”

    The Waves Pt. 1, Kele’s fifth solo album, is set for release on May 28 via Kele’s own label, KOLA Records / !K7. Previously, he shared the single ‘Smalltown Boy’.
