On April 22, R&B artist Kelis will release Food, her first album on the famed electronic imprint Ninja Tune. This wouldn’t be the first time she used “food” as a theme (see: “Milkshake”), but in this case, the entire album revolves around concepts of food, with songs like “Jerk Ribs,” “Breakfast,” “Cobbler” and “Friday Fish Fry.” It’s super fun and super funky, and you can now stream the whole thing courtesy of NPR First Listen.
