Last week Kele Okereke released his new solo album ‘Fatherland’, having shared a string of tracks in the run-up.
One of those tracks was ‘Do U Right’, a guitar-led track with some funked-up brass. At the time, Kele said: “Do U Right started as a song for a DJ Koze compilation. I didn’t get a chance to finish it in time but I knew the song was promising so I kept it for my own album where it mutated and turned into this greasy Stax-style romp”.
He’s now shared a slightly gentler, acoustic version of the track, and an accompanying video. In it, Kele’s in Norfolk by himself for the performance, surrounded by nature.
Kele is also about to head out on a tour of the UK this month, where he’ll be taking his new album around the country. Tickets are on sale now.
