Kele Okereke unveils new glam-rock track ‘BETWEEN ME AND MY MAKER’

It’s our latest glimpse into his upcoming album ‘2042’.

With his fourth solo album ‘2042’ set for release on 8th November, Kele Okereke has given us the latest teaser of what’s to come with the glam-rock inspired ‘BETWEEN ME AND MY MAKER’.

“‘BETWEEN ME AND MY MAKER’ is an ayahuasca-fuelled meditation on the nature of life, love and death,” Kele says of the song. “The lyrics detail an hallucinatory stroll through the underworld where the hero comes into contact with the divine. After watching Michael Robinson’s visionary short film These Hammers Don’t Hurt Us, I was obsessed with this idea of trial, judgement and reincarnation. That’s where the three sections of ‘BETWEEN ME AND MY MAKER’ come from: life, death and rebirth, like the metamorphosis of a butterfly.”
