    Lianne La Havas Releases Live Recording of "Say a Little Prayer" Ahead of US Tour
    Kevin Morosky

    English singer/songwriter/guitarist Lianne La Havas' Grammy Award–nominated second album, Blood, was released last year by Nonesuch Records in the US to critical acclaim; Pitchfork called it "dynamic and poignantly self-assured in its introspection … an almost seamless album." La Havas has spent this summer on a 37-concert, 15-country tour with Coldplay, playing for more than a million fans, including four sold-out nights at Wembley Stadium. She returns to the US this fall to play 17 dates with Leon Bridges and four shows with her own band in New York, Los Angeles, New Orleans, and Atlanta (full details below and at nonesuch.com/on-tour). La Havas' solo acoustic cover of the beloved Burt Bacharach/Hal David song "I Say a Little Prayer," recorded live at the Rock Werchter festival in Brussels earlier this year, is available to download now via iTunes and the Nonesuch Store and may be streamed at Apple Music and Spotify. You can watch a video of the performance below.

    La Havas' highly praised 2012 debut album Is Your Love Big Enough? won Album of the Year at iTunes UK as well as Barclaycard Mercury Prize and Ivor Novello Best Album nominations. She released the seven-track EP Blood Solo in early 2016 on the heels of an intimate solo tour.
