CMU Approved

Approved: Kelela – Go All Night

More from the previously CMU approved Solange, who as boss lady of young label Saint Records is shooting at “100% artistic control”, assuming its true bosses Sony allow that, via a new compilation spotlighting her fave artists. Whilst some of its featured tracks are still TBA, they’ll be by Solange (duh), Cassie, Sampha and Jhene Aiko, and relative freshers BC Kingdom, Jade de la Fleur, Iman Omari, Petite Noir, Starchild and India Shawn.

And the also CMU approved (and officially ‘Rising’, says Pitchfork) Kelela, who became R&B’s shock scoop of 2013 (I think so, anyway) via her excellent – and still-free – ‘CUT 4 ME’ mixtape. Kelela’s gift to the Saint compilation, titled ‘Saint Heron’, will be inky slow jam ‘Go All Night’, which might sound familiar because short blasts of it are on ‘CUT 4 ME’.
