Kelela Is Back On Clams Casino’s “A Breath Away”

It’s been a minute since we’ve heard from Kelela, who had one of last year’s best EPs. And up until recently, it had been longer than a minute since people had news of a full-length project from producer Clams Casino. But now the singer links up with the cloud rap architect for  “A Breath Away” off Clams’ forthcoming debut studio album 32 Levels (out July 15).

And it’s a new sound for both of them. Basically, they’ve come together for as close to a grounded-but-reaching-for-the-sky power ballad as two artists who deal in vaporous, futuristic sounds can get.

It’s surprising and lovely. Hear it below.
