If we haven’t shared our love for Lianne La Havas enough here at The 5 to 9 Life, it’s about to be 100x bigger than all the times we’ve declared our love for her previously.
Because this week, the British singer-songwriter, who has been confirmed to join Coldplay as special guest on their A Head Full of Dreams tour, has announced two exclusive intimate solo shows in Sydney and Melbourne.
Yes, yes, YES!
“On her upcoming Australian visit, the songstress will perform songs from her sophomore album ‘Blood’ along with the acclaimed 2012 debut ‘Is Your Love Big Enough’; an album that earned La Havas a Mercury Prize nomination and iTunes ‘Best of 2012’ Award. 2015’s follow up, ‘Blood’, garnered the singer a Grammy nomination for Best Urban Contemporary Album, and featured as Double J’s Album of the Week on release. It is a collection that shakes, shimmies, and swings with imaginative and immersive grooves, and firmly places La Havas front and centre on the ‘One to Watch’ list.”
We concur 100%. Although in our opinion, she has been on our ‘One to Watch’ list ever since the release of her debut album in 2012.
We’ll definitely be going to see her perform – will you?
