As an artist, Kele Okereke has never stood still, relentlessly seeking new ways in which to present his luminous songs. Fresh from successfully reinventing his band Bloc Party, Kele has returned with his third solo album, Fatherland. The adrenalized electronics of his previous two solo records, The Boxer and Trick, are replaced here by a much more organic – even classic – sonic palette: delicate folk ("Streets Been Talkin"), sumptuous soul ("Do U Right"), and insidious, dub reggae-meets-Weimar cabaret ("You Keep On Whispering"). It's all as far from Bloc Party's hectic wall of sound as can be imagined. His lyrics here are, as ever, perceptive and nakedly personal: a map of Kele's consciousness as he squared up to the prospect of fatherhood – his daughter Savannah was born in December 2016.
