Bloc Party Singer Goes Solo

Bloc Party frontman Kele Okereke is reportedly making a solo record. Producer Hudson Mohawke announced the news the 'Banquet' singer is reportedly starting working on a solo album during an interview with BBC Radio1Xtra about his forthcoming projects.

He said: "It hasn't been finalised yet, but I'm doing a bit of stuff for Kele from Bloc Party's solo album. When pushed further on the subject, he added: "He's doing a record with one of the guys from Spank Rock." The rumoured Spank Rock member, Armani XXXchange - aka producer Alex Epton - has previously remixed songs by Radiohead singer Thom Yorke, Beck, Santigold and others, as well as producing Kate Moss's boyfriend's band the Kills.

Okereke's solo project has not been officially announced, but the album has been speculated since Bloc Party revealed they were going on hiatus last October. At the time, drummer Matt Tong said: "Kele is an insatiable workaholic so you'll definitely hear from him again."

The band has one final date scheduled on November 19, in Osaka, Japan, before they go on a break.
