Kelela shares behind the scenes look at "LMK"

Kelela is back today to share a behind the scenes video for the making of her “LMK” video, originally directed by Andrew Thomas Huang. More than just a look into the production of the music video, the behind the scenes footage is directed by Archie Thomas and features commentary from Kelela on the meaning and context behind “LMK.” “I think when a woman demands respect, men often think that they want to be with them,” says Kelela in the video. “Let me know – just let me know, it ain’t that deep.”

“LMK” is the lead single from Kelela’s forthcoming debut album Take Me Apart, which is due October 6th via Warp Records, and is available for pre-order now. “‘LMK’ isn’t a flirtation – it’s a negotiation, close to an ultimatum,” says New York Times of the single.

In September Kelela will perform at the Hollywood Bowl alongside like-minded artists Solange, Blood Orange, Moses Sumney, KING, and Kelsey Lu. In October she will kick off a lengthy tour, playing shows across North America through November before heading to Europe for a slew of dates that will conclude in December in Amsterdam.
