Kelis has shared a new single, 'Midnight Snacks', and unveiled the accompanying video. 

It's the first new music we've had from the US singer and songwriter since 2014's 'Food', her sixth album, which was followed by the release of a cookbook, 'My Life On A Plate'. 

Keeping with the gastronomic theme, Kelis — perhaps best known for the single 'Milkshake' — also launched a weed-focused Netflix cooking show last year, logically entitled 'Cooking With Cannabis'. 

"The idea is just that food is a very carnal thing. Everyone can relate to it. It’s very human, it’s sensual, it’s something that you crave. And it’s sexy," said Kelis. "I heard the beat, thought it was dope, and the first thing that came to mind was 'Midnight Snacks'.

"The FaNaTix were like, what are you talking about? And I was like, it makes you feel like a midnight snack! And that was it. It's funny to me, but I like the fact that you can take sex and food, and you can put these two things together, and they’re totally interchangeable. I love that," she continued.

Kelis' debut album, 'Kaleidoscope', was 20 years old in 2020. Last year she also appeared on the new Disclosure album, 'ENERGY', alongside the likes of Fatoumata Diawara.
