After absolutely owning 2013 with her debut mixtape 'CUT 4 ME' – the best mixtape of 2013, hands down – R&B singer Kelela is back with a new song, The High. Its opening lyrics set an eerily secutive tone: "my lips are creeping up your neck… you shiver and try to pull back…" The spartan production comes from Gited & Blessed, a producer who has been kicking about for years now, with his recent project The Abstract Eye debuting on Eglo Records.
