Lianne La Havas, whose debut album, Is Your Love Big Enough?, will be released in the US on August 7 via Nonesuch Records, has unveiled the video for the album's title track. "Lianne La Havas has pipes, and she’s taken her soulful show on the road," says MTV Iggy. "That’s the takeaway from her latest music video, for 'Is Your Love Big Enough,' which Lianne shot with her bandmates while they were on tour in Europe. Highlights: unbelievable footwear, reckless bowling moves, and beatific audiences. All to the sound of Lianne asking 'Is your love/Big enough for what’s to come?' If it’s more of this, then yes, totally." Watch it here.Read more|Journal Topics:Artist News VideoVideoTuesday, May 22, 2012|1 comments
