Solange – Saint Heron

Like an unstoppable force the new wave of soul floods through contemporary music, with more and more exciting talents making their debuts and destined to conquer the charts along with Emeli Sande and Laura Mvula. Enter Kelela, one of the stars (present and future) of the new compilation released by Solange, ‘Saint Heron’, a collection with the most exciting nu soul.

Kelela’s single ‘Go All Night’ is the first single, following on from its shorter version on the mixtape ‘Cut 4 Me’. With echoes of gospel (just like Laura Mvula), Kelela’s voice embraces the sentiment of the blues and the sophistication of modern ballads. Kelela also duets on ‘Saint Heron’ with Kingdom. Look out for other rising stars Cassie, Sampha, Jhene Aiko, Petite Noir, Jade De La Fleur, Starchild, BC Kingdom, India Shawn, Iman Omari on ‘Saint Heron’ – one of the indispensible albums of the Autumn.
