“Raven” is the upcoming second studio album by American singer and songwriter Kelela. It is slated for release on February 10, 2023, via Warp Records. It comes six years after the release of Kelela‘s debut album “Take Me Apart, which was lauded by critics as one of the best albums of 2017.
In the artist’s own words: “I started this process from the feeling of isolation and alienation I’ve always had as a black femme in dance music, despite its black origins. “Raven” is my first breath taken in the dark, an affirmation of black femme perspective in the midst of systemic erasure and the sound of our vulnerability turned to power”.
