In a press release, Kelela shared a brief statement about “Like a Tattoo”:
Sade Adu and her mononymic band last released new material in 2018 with “The Big Unknown,” a one-off contribution to Steve McQueen’s film Widows. Sade said they’ve been working on an album at Miraval Studios in France, a studio co-owned by Brad Pitt. Sade Adu was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in January for her work at the front of the band.
Kelela released her second album, Raven, on February 10, chasing it with a new video for the album track “Enough for Love.” At the end of March, she’ll join Res and KeiyaA in a performance at the Brooklyn Academy of Music as part of a programming series curated by Solange Knowles.
