Lianne La Havas may not be a household name yet, but the uber-talented British singer/songwriter’s new album should change that.

Her self-titled third release – her first in five years – is a beautiful revelation. Sure she’s been nominated for prestigious awards (from a Grammy to a Mercury prize and beyond), but she has truly come into her own in 2020. A defining work, and the first of her albums that she’s self-produced with her own band accompanying, Lianne La Havas shows off her amazing vocal tone and phrasing, inventive guitar work and collaborative songwriting chops. Expect the unexpected from LaHavas – whether it’s being accompanied by the BBC Orchestra (as she was in a performance in London this past February) or covering Radiohead’s “Weird Fishes” (as she does on this new collection) and expect to be amazed.
