“I’ll wait a little longer…while we are getting stronger…I know it’s taken time to heal…we’ll be unstoppable…don’t know what I did it for…I needed to know that it was always real…(Unstoppable)”
Lianne La Havas has released the album Blood. It was a bit of a wait between the album Is Your Love Big Enough & this one, but now that it’s over it was a good wait.
This album is certainly no continuation of the last. Clearly Lianne took some time in between to do some exploring & to begin experimenting with her sound. What she does carry on from before is deeply personal & beautiful lyricism.
This album gets right into the depths of emotion that comes from romantic love & life’s journey. Lianne returned to her roots by spending time in Jamaica & worked it into the sound. There is a touch of the islands in the feel, but with her usual touch of Jazz, Doo Wop, Soul, & Folk. The album is only 10 songs, which are over far too quickly. From the moment Unstoppable comes in til Good Goodbye is over you’re in & wishing there was more. Another great work by Lianne La Havas.
Blood is currently available on all streaming & music retailers. Experience this album & you’ll understand why Prince is so fond of her.
