There's also a sense that Kele has finally found a certain peace within himself. The London-born singer of Nigerian descent came out in a Butt magazine feature in March, and last month he admitted to the US press that he doesn't listen to Bloc Party albums. "I don't hate Bloc Party, but there was a long time where I didn't listen to the old records. I could only hear things that were wrong. [But] a few months ago it came up on my iPod, and I heard it the way other people hear it."
