NEW MUSIC: KEHLANI | ALTAR

Kehlani recently made the surprise announcement that her third studio album—and sixth overall project—would be arriving this winter. Entitled, "Blue Water Road." Now she gives of taste of that project with the release of her new single "Altar" which is a swooning hit of pop-R&B that finds Kehlani (who uses she/they pronouns) crooning over a crisp drum skip and a mix of sparkling, swaying synths and guitars. The track also arrives with an accompanying music video, directed by Kid Studio, and starring Diovanna LaBeija alongside Kehlani. On Twitter, she explained the single’s meaning. “To all those, I have lost, all the angels I have gained, all those that walk with me with hands cracking my chest open, this is for you. I love you! #ALTAR THANK YOU,” shared the 26-year-old. “Altar” marks Kehlani’s first solo single of 2021, though it’s far from their first song of the year. They’ve dropped a handful of collaborations as well, including “I Like Dat” with T-Pain, “Love You Too” with Lil Durk, and “Back Together” with Amorphous. Kehlani did not share any additional details about her upcoming new album, "Blue Water Road," like an exact release date or tracklist.
