Kelela Returns With Video for New Song “Washed Away”
Kelela is back with her first new song in four years. Watch the video for “Washed Away,” shot in Ethiopia’s Danakil Depression by director Yasser Abubeker, below. “I love a banger, but for the first point of contact out of my hiatus, it felt more honest to lead with an ambient heart-check,” Kelela said of the track in press materials. Yo van Lenz produced the track.
Of the track, Kelela added, “I specifically want to speak to marginalized Black folk and highlight the work we do to find renewal in a world that’s built to make us feel inadequate. This song is the soundtrack to the relief we find after going inward.”
