Watch: Lianne La Havas Performs for AP, Livestream; Talks to The Warner SoundLianne La Havas, whose debut album, Is Your Love Big Enough?, was released in the United States yesterday on Nonesuch Records to great critical acclaim, visited the New York City studio of the Associated Press to perform a song off the album, "No Room for Doubt." Watch the performance below. As noted earlier this week in the Nonesuch Journal, the AP has described Is Your Love Big Enough? as "outstanding ... not just one of the year’s best debuts, but one of the year’s best albums."
While in New York City, La Havas sat down for a live performance session and answered fans questions in a Q&A on Livestream last Friday afternoon. You can now watch the complete session below.
La Havas also stopped by Rivington Guitars in New York City to talk with The Warner Sound. In the video Introducing: Lianne La Havas, the singer/songwriter/guitarist discusses such musical inspirations as Lauryn Hill and Jill Scott and working with producer Matt Hales (aka Aqualung) of the new album in Brooklyn and Los Angeles. She also performs bit of the title track in the guitar shop, which is cited in the lyrics of the tune. Watch that video below as well.
To listen to Is Your Love Big Enough?, go to AOL Music and MSN, where the album is streaming in full all week. To pick up a copy of the album, head to iTunes and the Nonesuch Store, where CD orders include an instant download of the album and, for a limited time, an exclusive print signed by La Havas.
