Description
(2016 Grammy Nominee for Best Urban Contemporary Album) After the success of her 2012 debut Is Your Love Big Enough? British neo-soul singer Lianne La Havas took an extended holiday in Jamaica, from which she drew inspiration for the ten new songs on this 2015 release. Still characterized by her "riveting vocal elaborations" (NPR), La Havas has grown more confident and extroverted as a songwriter, mixing jazz, folk, and reggae on such distinctive songs as "Unstoppable," "Wonderful," "Midnight," "Never Get Enough," "What You Don't Do," "Ghost," and "Green & Gold."

"On her second album, she still strums and fingerpicks like an alt-folkie, but that new sound you hear is bass, and plenty of it. Standouts like 'Unstoppable' and 'What You Don't Do' make the case for La Havas as a cosmic soul queen, recalling the daydream music Aretha Franklin made in the mid-Seventies."—Rolling Stone

"A few of these songs, like the confessional 'Midnight' and 'Never Get Enough,' flip rapidly between hushed rubato meditations and more fervent, hard-kicking refrains.... 'Wonderful' is a bracingly genuine lament about a failed romance, made poignant by an uncluttered arrangement that gives La Havas room to brood. 'What You Don't Do' ... finds La Havas savoring a relationship that's grown so strong it no longer needs to be affirmed in sweet-nothing words. 'I know you love me, I don't need proof,' she shouts—and her voice is so darned blissed that when she later proclaims 'I've forgotten how to be blue,' you believe her."—NPR
