    Lianne La Havas's Self-Titled Album Among Best of 2020 per NPR, New York Times

    Lianne La Havas's new, self-titled album, released this summer on Nonesuch Records in the United States, has made the Best Albums of 2020 lists of the New York Times and NPR Music.

    On his Top 10 list, the New York Times music critic Jon Pareles writes: "The third album by the English songwriter Lianne La Havas cycles through a failed romance—starting and ending with a break—in songs brimming with poised musicality. Graceful melodies, supple guitar syncopations, sophisticated harmonies and a voice that can sparkle with anticipation or cry out in pain capture all the hope and heartache of her narrative." See his complete list at nytimes.com.

    NPR's Suraya Mohamed writes: "The songs on this album, La Havas' third and perhaps best, reveal how her sophisticated artistry is made of not just brilliantly crafted lyrics, but a rich musicality, full with gorgeous harmonic voicings, catchy rhythms and soulful melodies."
