    Lianne La Havas Nominated for Three MOBO Awards, Including Album of the Year

    Congratulations to Lianne La Havas, who has received three nominations for this year’s MOBO Awards: Best Female Act, Best R&B/Soul Act, and Album of the Year, for her self-titled, third album, released in July on Nonesuch Records in the US. The UK’s biggest celebration of Black music and culture, the MOBO Awards celebration will take place on December 9, live-streamed for the first time on YouTube at 7pm GMT, and broadcast on BBC One at 10:45pm GMT. You can read more and see the complete list of nominees here.

    Lianne La Havas spans the arc of a relationship. "What plays a big role in the album is the idea of the life cycle of plants and nature—equating this journey with a seasonal thing that blooms, thrives, goes away, and comes back even stronger," she says. Its musical references are as varied as Milton Nascimento, Joni Mitchell, Jaco Pastorious, Al Green, and Destiny’s Child. In keeping with the album's intimate feel, everyone who contributed is a trusted collaborator, including longtime songwriting ally Matt Hales, co-producer Beni Giles, and guest co-producer Mura Masa.

    Composer Caroline Shaw's new album, Narrow Sea, featuring Sō Percussion, Dawn Upshaw, and Gilbert Kalish's performance of the title piece—five parts, each a new setting of a text from The Sacred Harp, the 19th-century collection of shape-note hymns—is due next Friday, January 22, on Nonesuch. Here, the artists talk with writer Matthew Guerrieri about the album, which also includes Sō Percussion's performance of Shaw's Taxidermy. Find out why she tells Guerrieri: "I was telling a friend, half-jokingly, that, in a lot of my music, I’m trying to figure out a way to talk about death and mortality, or think about it."
