Bloc Party Singer goes Solo

from the Guardian:

Bands going on hiatus often means one of three things: the group have fallen out, the band have run out of ideas, or the lead singer wants to go it alone. In the case of Bloc Party, it appears to be the latter, as Kele Okereke prepares to release his electro-tinged solo debut, The Boxer. The first single is apparently a “slow-churning dance-pop gem”, but we like Mr Okereke’s new direction, even if it does stray close to other electro anthems (Wiley’s Wearing My Rolex, for instance, or Mason Vs Princess Superstar’s Perfect).
