Kelela today released “Enough for Love,” the fifth and final single off her upcoming album RAVEN which drops this coming Friday, February 10th via Warp. Stream the new track HERE.

The penultimate track on the record, “Enough for Love” finds Kelela asking the ultimate question: Are you tough enough for love?” She knows the hypermasculine, toxic inclination to reject tenderness is a force. She also knows the freedom, and compassion, that can come from whittling it away.


“Enough for Love” joins previously released singles “Washed Away,” “Happy Ending,” “On the Run,” and “Contact” in the lead up to RAVEN’s arrival this Friday. Late last year, Kelela also announced her now sold out RAVE:N tour, which kicks off March 16th in Atlanta, GA in support of the highly anticipated sophomore album. Brand new tour dates have just been added for Paris, France (April 8th) and Berlin, Germany (April 11th). Tour dates below:
