Kele Okereke drops new single 'From A Place Of Love'

With his highly-anticipated new album set to land in a matter of weeks, Kele Okereke has now unveiled the next cut to be lifted from his forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'From A Place Of Love' follows on from the previously shared tracks 'Nineveh', 'The Heart Of The Wave', and his cover of Bronski Beat's 'Smalltown Boy' in previewing the new LP 'The Waves Pt.1', which is out on the 28th May via his own label KOLA Records / !K7.

Speaking about the new offering, he said, “The idea for this song came when I was watching the animated remake of She-Ra And The Princesses Of Power with my daughter. There was something about the main villain Catra's character that was compelling. I understood the idea that she had been hurt and now hurt, or hurting others, was her default setting. So I wrote this song for Catra, reimagined as a young woman but still carrying the demons from her past around with her. Ultimately 'From A Place Of Love' is a song about watching the people you love deal with things that are bigger than them, knowing that you can't solve their problems but you can be by their side, even if that's the only thing that you can do”.
