Bloc Party’s Kele Okerke Goes Solo With ‘The Boxer’

    Late last year, it was announced that Bloc Party frontman Kele Okerke was using the band’s “hiatus” to record a solo album. A few months later, here’s the details of the album: It’s called The Boxer, and it’s due on June 21 in the U.K. via Wichita, and the U.S. on June 22 via Glassnote. The album was produced by Spank Rock producer XXXChange, so expect a whole lot of booming, and possibly lascivious, electro-pop.


    The first single, the awesomely titled “Tenderoni,” is due out on June 14. Here’s the rest of the track list:


    01 Walk Tall
    02 On the Lam
    03 Tenderoni
    04 The Other Side
    05 Everything You Wanted
    06 New Rules
    07 Unholy Thoughts
