Bloc Party have enlisted rising punk star KennyHoopla for their new single “Keep It Rolling,” which marks their first-ever collaboration with another artist.
“I’ve been a fan of Kenny’s for a while now, so when he came to London, I jumped at the chance of getting in the studio together,” Bloc Party frontman Kele Okereke says. “We wrote a bunch of songs in one afternoon, and ‘Keep It Rolling’ was one of those ideas. I always felt quite attached to that idea, so I decided I would like to bring it to Bloc Party, [and] we turned it into a song. It was all very organic.”

“I’ve always been a huge Bloc Party fan, so this was a bucket list collab for me. I hardly do any features, so if I do one, it’s always for family. I’m happy to call Kele a friend, and it was amazing to get to do a song together,” KennyHoopla adds.
