Hear the tasty sixth album from Kelis and let us know if her vintage soul direction satisfies your appetite.

Food is the sixth studio album by American recording artist Kelis, released on April 18, 2014.

Food is the sixth studio album by American singer Kelis. It was released on April 18, 2014, becoming her first album released under Ninja Tune Records. After parting ways with Jive Records in 2007, Kelis signed to Interscope and will. am Music Group in 2009, through the label she released her fifth studio album, Flesh Tone, which saw Kelis experiment with a dance sound.

Album · 2014 · 13 Songs. Kelis offers a soulful collection of horn-accompanied retro R&B that’s conceptually united by her gastronomic passion. At a glance, the conceit might seem a bit tongue-in-cheek (particularly since her breakthrough came with 2003’s ultra-sassy Milkshake ), but neither the music nor the inspiration for Food can be taken lightly: as a sideline to her singing career, the vocalist became a Le Cordon Bleu-trained saucier.

Kelis’ sixth album ‘Food’ makes you hungry for more. It’s not easy to be an oddball. Maybe oddball has a negative connotation, but personally, being somewhat of an oddity myself, I take it as a compliment. It means that you don’t conform like so many others do to respective things. For R&B singer Kelis, she certainly has never conformed to conventional R&B. That willingness to be different certainly made Milkshake and Bossy big-time statements and hits, even if it didn’t catapult the respective albums to a great degree of commercial success.

Food shows Kelis in unusual form-ragged, raspy, somewhere between exhausted from effort and deep in reflection. It's definitely not the tough, coyly defiant, independently minded kick-in-the-ass that her top-flight vocal performances made famous, though there are still flashes of it for emphasis.

label Ninja Tune, Food sports a cover that doesn't seem nearly bright or colorful enough to reflect its sound - an eclectic and modern-sounding synthesis of classic pop and rhythm & blues with a lot of friskiness, some funk, and even a little twang. Strings, horns, and brass arranged by Todd Simon are a major part of the album and match up well with the slightly scratchy and simultaneously sportive and sincere qualities of Kelis' voice.

But Food - Kelis's first album for British indie label Ninja Tune - nixes the idea she's been spreading herself too thin right from the start. Early track 'Breakfast', a blast of funk-soul with warm, crackling horns, is introduced by a child impishly asking "Are you hungry? My mum made food. It's that knack for chameleonic shapeshifting that gives Food its flavour. At her best, Kelis has always had a roving eye for other sounds, styles and genres; an insatiable need to flirt elsewhere and flit from the Neptunes-produced sound of her early records to neo-soul, classic pop and smooth RnB.

Art-pop pioneer Kelis has never been more soulful or more intimate than she is on her sixth album. The singer steps out of the EDM rocket she rode on her last LP, 2010’s Flesh Tone, in favor of more earthly pleasures – equating food with sex in a way that would make George Costanza drool
