    Watch/Listen: Lianne La Havas Performs on WFUV's "Words and Music"

    When Lianne La Havas was in New York City last month to celebrate the Nonesuch Records release of her debut album, Is Your Love Big Enough?, she stopped by New York public radio station WFUV's Studio A to record an episode of Words and Music, which is now available. La Havas talks with WFUV's Alisa Ali about her life in music, her new album, meeting Prince, and much more. She also performs a few of the album's songs live in the studio: "Is Your Love Big Enough?," "Age," and "Tease Me." You can watch the performances and listen to the complete Words and Music episode below.

    "This thoughtful singer-songwriter creates a soulful, folk hybrid," says Ali of her guest. "Her debut album exhibits a quiet confidence that's something special when you consider that Lianne's only 23 ... a jazzy blend of folk and soul that's really hard to deny."

    Lianne La Havas has been shortlisted for the prestigious Mercury Prize for Is Your Love Big Enough?. The 2012 winner will be announced this Thursday, November 1. La Havas returns to the US next week and will make her debut performance on the Late Show with David Letterman on November 8; she appears for the first time on Conan the following week, on November 14. She gives three headlining shows in the US: November 11 at the Washington, DC–area Birchmere Theatre, November 16 at Los Angeles’ Roxy Theatre, and November 17 at San Francisco’s Rickshaw Stop. For additional details and ticket links, go to nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    To pick up a copy of Is Your Love Big Enough?, head to 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.
