Kelis Sets July Release for ‘Flesh Tone’


Mark your calendars, Kelis fans. The singer wants to make you dance with her new album, which now has an official release date.

Kelis has announced July 6 as the date U.S. and Canadian fans can pick up Flesh Tone, while other countries will get their hands on it a month and a half earlier on May 17. Led by the No. 1 dance single “Acapella,” the disc boasts production from Free School, Boys Noize, DJ Ammo, and Benny Benassi.

“It’s an album you can get sweaty to,” Kelis told last year of her first project in nearly four years. “I’ve been feeling animalistic and kind of carnal in my approach to things lately.”

Last night Kelis was joined by guest DJ on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” for an electrifying performance of “Acapella.”

    Kelis Is Amazingly Hott, and So Is The Album Title “FleshTone”… I Can’t Wait Either, This Album By Far Will Be Her Best Album Yet, and Nobody Can’t Hate On Kelis… Kelis For 2010.

    I am so ready for this album and July is a perfect month to release an album. But since she is releasing it a month and a half earlier overseas doesn’t she release it’s going to be all over the net for people to D/L?

    i’m sure the U.s. version will be a little different from the Overseas version.

    mh dont know if its a good look, even if she records 2 or 3 new tracks for the us release, the cd still has leaked in may…
    dont know if that is going to help her sales…

    Looking forward to this. I really want her new song “4th of July” to be the next single to coincide with the release.

    As for it being released overseas first, I don’t think her label is that focused on the US. Kelis has always been well received overseas plus she has a more grown and sexy album with songs by Raphael Saadiq already in the works that would probably do better here.
