17 Most-Anticipated Albums of Spring 2014

#1Kelis

Who: Kelis, back to R&B after a few years as a muse to dance producers

What: Food, her first album on the indie label Ninja Tune

When: April 22

Why We're Excited: Produced by TV on the Radio's Dave Sitek, the album is steeped in the kind of clanging soul and funk you might hear played in the park on a summer day. But the star is Kelis' throaty, sometimes ragged vocals, which bring these songs a certain authority.
