After announcing earlier this week that her third album, Blue Water Road, will be released in the winter, Kehlani has dropped the first single, “Altar.”
With a video set in an isolated country villa, Kehlani is joined by another female as she sings of romance.
“If I set a flame and I call your name/I’ll fix you a plate, we can go to dinner/We can share a meal your way/And I’ll play you the songs that you used to play,” the two-time Grammy nominee sings.
“Understanding grief and death has been a journey,” Kehlani commented in an emotional post on Instagram. “I’ve gained a lot of angels in my life but the last year has showed me that even after people have passed on, if I choose to, I can have an even closer relationship.”
“I thank my angels, my guides, all those who walk with me for allowing me to see them, feel them, hear them in full,” she continued. “I honor you in all i do. This is my offering. Enjoy. I love you.”
Blue Water Road will be the follow-up to Kehlani’s second album, It Was Good Until It Wasn’t, which debuted at number two on the Billboard 200 chart in May 2020.
