Five years after her second album Blood and 2020’s “Bittersweet”, British singer-songwriter Lianne La Havas announced the release of her new full-length. Lianne La Havas is out on July 17th via Warner Records and it is available to pre-order here. We already shared “Paper Thin“ and “Can’t Fight”; “Weird Fishes” is a new excerpt.
It began in earnest by accident: returning from a glorious, sunny Glastonbury festival, La Havas and her core band decided to see if they could nail their lithe live version of Radiohead’s song in the studio. It was this experience that led to the formation of the new album. “I had the most wonderful, nourishing experience recording that,” she says, “And that’s where I decided: the rest of the album needs to be like this. It’s got to be my band, and I’ve got to do it in London, whenever people have time.”
