Bloc Party frontman Kele Okereke is following 2017's Fatherland with a new solo album, 2042, on November 8 via his own KOLA label. The first single is "Jungle Bunny," and Kele says:

There is a history of black entertainers feeling that after they have achieved a certain level of success that they are above discussions of race but that idea is a delusion. As a person of colour living in the western world, it does not matter how much wealth one accumulates, race will follow you wherever you go. With JUNGLE BUNNY I wanted explore this idea: In a time of such rampant division and public racism, what is the responsibility of the black entertainer?

Listen below.

Meanwhile, Bloc Party are playing Silent Alarm in full on tour, including Central Park with Cults on 9/20 (sold out) and Riot Fest (where they overlap with Slayer, who will be playing their final Chicago/Milwaukee area show at the fest).
