Kelela – “The High”

kelela Kelela   The High

Fresh off the release of her 2013 debut mixtape, Cut 4 Me, the Los Angeles-based R&B artist Kelela has now dropped a new single, “The High.” Featuring production from Gifted & Blessed, the song has the same low-lit, introspective appeal of much of her previous work, defined by the smokey blend of Kelela’s delicate vocal work over a pulsing, muted production.

But that’s not all: the singer-songwriter has also announced her first live headlining performances, starting at The Echo in Los Angeles and Brooklyn’s Rough Trade NYC for shows on 4/2 and 4/3, respectively. She will also be performing various shows in Austin, TX for SXSW on March 12-14.
