Lianne La Havas | “Bittersweet” [A COLORS SHOW]
A beautifully measured and understated performer, La Havas’ most powerful moments come when she is at her most raw and vulnerable. Taking inspiration from her recent discovery of the wistful 70s Brazilian music of Milton Nascimento together with the sci-fi harmonies and bold empowerment of Destiny’s Child to find her current sound.
“I’d forgotten how much I love singing. I’ve tapped into the best and worst parts of me and while I didn’t expect this to be the new direction, it’s my reality and its driven by emotion…”
Lianne La Havas is an award ceremony regular, well-known for her finely-wrought collection of jazz-influenced neo-soul. But now, eight years and two albums into her career, La Havas wants us to know the real her. “Bittersweet” is a stone-cold soul anthem full of raw emotion that sees Lianne draw on her own personal journey, turning her growth and learning over the last few years into music for the heart and soul.
“Bittersweet summer rain, I’m born again.”
