The Take Me Apart singer shared “Contact” today, another promising anthem that will appear on her upcoming project, Raven. Asmara, Bambii, Brandon Peralta and LSDXOXO hold down the pulsating production which is balanced against Kelela’s airy vocals. The singer brings the dance floor to life on “Contact,” which carries a house-friendly production throughout the song.

Kelela explained her new song at length in a statement. She explained her new song intends to encapsulate a night out, from the pre-drink to leaving the club at the end of the night.

“‘Contact’ has a little bit of something for every part of the night. It’s a soundtrack for ‘pre-gaming’ (a song to play as you’re getting ready or on your way to the club),” she said in a statement. “It’s also the interior club experience: the heat that envelops you when you walk into a packed rave. All this culminates in a very naughty, psychedelic moment in the back of the club with a lover.”

Kelela released her last project, Take Me Apart in 2017. Though she released a remix project a year later, Kelela broke her five-year hiatus in September with the release of “Washed Away.” Since then, she also released singles such as “Happy Ending” and “On The Run.”

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
We’re takin’ a ride, 405 through the West Side
We’re party to party, it’s late but we’re wide awake
The bass in my body, I’m sinkin’, it’s so right
And time is surreal, now I’m floating in outer space

[Pre-Chorus]
Rollin’ up, we bringin’ the vibe
It might just render you blind
We’re workin’ hard every day
Don’t need your help, I can pay
You’re stressin’, that’s not allowed
There’s nothin’ holdin’ us down
You see my hips and they sway
Now, see me walkin’ away to the dance floor

[Chorus]
Oh, it’s a sauna, here if you wanna (We’re standing in the light)
It’s 2 A.M. and we made it, everybody faded (So wild, so wild, so wild)
And now I’m floatin’ away, far and away (You know it feels so right)
You try to stall and delay, but I wanna play

[Verse 2]
We’re hidin’ away on the back, on the new high (New high)
I’ll give you a taste if you’re good, but you gotta wait (Wait, wait)
Your hands on my body, the feeling is so right
I’ll go all the way if it’s up to me

[Pre-Chorus]
Loneliness, I see in your eyes
It might just render you blind
We’re gettin’ hotter these days
Contact, we just have to wait
You’re stressin’, that’s not allowed
Got nothin’ holdin’ us down
You’re leanin’ in and I’ll sway
Baby, let’s dance it away

[Chorus]
Oh, it’s a sauna, here if you wanna (We’re standing in the light)
It’s 2 A.M. and we made it, everybody faded (So wild, so wild, so wild)
And now I’m floatin’ away, far and away (Away, away, away, away)
You try to stall and delay, but I wanna play, yeah
