Bloc Party have enlisted KennyHoopla for their first ever collaborative single, ‘Keep It Rolling’.
The new track is the second release this year from Bloc Party, who are currently midway through a worldwide tour with Paramore.
Have a listen to ‘Keep It Rolling’ below.
Explaining how the collab came about and his admiration for KennyHoopla, Bloc Party frontman Kele Okereke said:
“I’ve been a fan of Kenny’s for a while now, so when he came to London I jumped at the chance of getting in the studio together.”
“We wrote a bunch of songs in one afternoon and ‘Keep It Rolling’ was one of those ideas. I always felt quite attached to that idea so I decided I would like to bring it to Bloc Party, so we turned it into a song. It was all very organic.”
KennyHoopla, meanwhile, returned the compliment and also added he rarely does collabs, saying:
“I’ve always been a huge Bloc Party fan so this was a bucket list collab for me. I hardly do any features, so if I do one, it’s always for family.
“I’m happy to call Kele a friend and it was amazing to get to do a song together.”
