The ink is dry on Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter Kelis’ new recording deal with Interscope Records.

According to the label, Kelis will release her next album through Music Group/Interscope Records in the near future.

“Kelis is a true artist and we’re so excited to start this new chapter in her musical life,” Jimmy Iovine, Chairman of Interscope Geffen A&M Records, said in statement Tuesday.

News of the deal first broke in November when Kelis released the David Guetta (“Sexy Chick,” “When Love Takes Over”)-produced “Acapella.”

While a release date has not been set for her debut, Kelis’ album will feature work by some of today’s most influential producers including, Free School, Burns, DJ Ammo, and Boys Noize.

“I love that I am now a new part of the Interscope family,” Kelis said in a statement. “2010 is around the corner and I can’t wait to put out new music and spend time with real music fans on tour again.”
