Kenna’s Out of Control
Pharrell's friend Kenna is set to takeover
MTV UK News recently spoke to Kenna after listening to his promising new album Make Sure They See My Face.
The album has been written by Kenna and co-produced by The Neptunes with the first release in the UK set to be the punchy genre bending track Out of Control.
Chad (Hugo)and I worked on Out of Control together I play the whole song on the piano or the guitar and Chad will help produce around it and do the beats, I leave the beats to the Neptunes!
Kennas been touring the UK with Mark Ronson and when we asked him about the audience he revealed that there have been a few familiar faces turning up to the show a lot of people, Adele, Tim Burgess from The Charlatans, the guys from The Klaxons, you find a lot of people running around.
Kenna told us that his latest album title was inspired by a repetitive conversation that he had with Pharrell.
When he started writing the album he also attempted to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, scaling a mammoth 18,200 feet of 19,200 before being taken ill and having to decent.
When he got back Pharrell kept phoning him to make sure that he was getting his face in the media as he hadnt been featured in his own music videos before and now youve got to make sure they see your face Kenna.
To stop the banter, in reply to Pharrell, he decided to name the album after his advice
