Kelis has taken up a new sound. Again.

Three years after going EDM on her album "Flesh Tone" (which included collaborations with David Guetta and Boys Noize, among others), the shape-shifting singer announced that she's completed its follow-up, titled "Food" and due out in September, according to Pitchfork.

Kelis, who broke out in the late '90s and early '00s with a series of adventurous R&B singles produced by the Neptunes, recorded the new disc with Dave Sitek of TV on the Radio. He'll release it too, through his Federal Prism label, which is also set to issue a single by TV on the Radio later this year.

In "Jerk Ribs," a "Food" cut posted last week on YouTube, Kelis dials down the thumping beats of "Flesh Tone" in favor of a mellower old-school soul vibe with bright horns and a percolating groove.
