Earlier this year, the avant-R&B queen Kelela announced that she’d follow up her great 2013 mixtape Cut 4 Me with a new EP called “Hallucinogen,” making the announcement by sharing a stunning video for the great Arca-produced single “A Message.” But the EP’s May release date came and went without any word on what was up with it. And now Consequence Of Sound points out that Hallucinogen will finally come out in October and that it’ll trace the arc of a relationship. And with that news, Kelela gives us the luminous new track “Rewind,” which she co-produced with Kingdom and Nugget. It’s a gorgeous, aqueous, starry-eyed track that rides a blooming bass bounce. Kelela has yet to sing a bad song, and this one just kills. Listen below.
Hallucinogen is out 10/9 on Cherry Coffee/Warp.
