Kele Okereke's Solo Album?
2009-11-05 by Davey Boy STAFF | 19 Comments
With hints of a Bloc Party hiatus being dropped multiple times over the past few months, Scottish electro DJ & producer Hudson Mohawke has let the cat out of the bag concerning a Kele Okereke solo LP.

During an interview with BBC Radio, Mohawke claimed "It hasn’t been finalised yet, but I’m doing a bit of stuff for Kele from Bloc Party’s solo album. He’s doing a record with one of the guys from Spank Rock.”

As expected, this is likely to suggest that the upcoming solo album will have an electro/dancey style similar to Bloc Party's most recent releases.

Depends how you liked Intimacy, I'm guessing it'll be more of the same.

i would hope not exACTLY the same because then it would kinda say, "look how redundant the rest of the band were on our last record."

Intimacy's actually my favorite Bloc Party album, so I'll probably like this.

I loved Intimacy so I'm not fussed if he continues down the electronica path.

Thought Kele was a girl's name

Band never did much for me, so maybe his solo will be better than Bloc Party but I can't see it
