Lianne La Havas has released a two-part visual story for songs from her debut album, Is Your Love Big Enough?: "Elusive," which premiered earlier today on Noisey.com, and "Gone," which premiere via Essence. Both videos were directed by Colin Solal Cardo of La Blogothèque. Watch them both below.

“I've been collaborating with Lianne for more than a year now, but working on this project felt like something completely new," says Solal Cardo. "Lianne's a brilliant storyteller, there's a true cinematic quality to her songs. When you listen to them, you go through all these emotions and narratives, like a collection of short movies. We felt like it was finally time to build a world around these songs, give life to these love stories and let Lianne actually become these characters. Be it a candid young girl falling in love, or a heartbroken femme fatale in the middle of the woods. I feel fortunate for the trust relationship I have with Lianne, it's something any music video director has to cherish because it's rare and precious.”

Lianne La Havas is currently on tour in Europe. She launches a spring tour of the United States at the House of Blues in Dallas on March 17. For details, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    Rhiannon Giddens was on PBS NewsHour to talk with Jeffrey Brown about her new role as artistic director of Silkroad, with whom she just concluded her first tour. "I love getting thrown something that I have never done before, but that I think I have the goods to do, but I have to figure out how to do it,” Giddens tells Brown. “And so I always say yes first and figure it out later.” You can watch Giddens’s conversation with Brown, who calls her "a boundless bridger of musical worlds and styles," here.
