Azekel is a British R&B singer who released two EPs of raw, self-produced soul in 2015 and 2016 with Raw Vol. I and II. This year, after collaborating with Gorillaz on their recent album Humanz, he's finally preparing to drop a full-length project of his own. The first single is "Can We Have Fun (In This House Tonight)," a woozy blend of falsetto and horns that would make any house party heat up.

"'Can We have Fun...' is a pre-apocalyptic celebration of life," Azekel explained in an email to The FADER. "Every time I'm on my timeline or hear the news it's full of fear. Yeah, it's pretty obvious that the world as we know it is coming to an end, but don't mean we can't turn up." Listen below.
