    Listen: Lianne La Havas Talks "Bittersweet" with Genius
    Genius

    British singer/songwriter/guitarist Lianne La Havas spoke with Genius' Verified series about "Bittersweet," the first single off her forthcoming self-titled album, due July 17 on Nonesuch Records. You can watch it below.

    "In the context of the whole album," she says of the song, "it's kind of the overview of reconnecting with yourself and realizing that you may have to change something dramatically in your life to make yourself happier and to get more fulfillment from your life. It's basically about realizing that something needs to change, and then taking the steps to do so."

    Lianne La Havas is available to pre-order on limited-edition clear vinyl, standard vinyl, and CD in the Nonesuch Store with an instant download of "Bittersweet" and the just-released track "Paper Thin."

    You can watch her perform "Bittersweet" with the BBC Symphony Orchestra at Barbican Hall in London here:

    Composer Sarah Kirkland Snider’s Mass for the Endangered, is out now on New Amsterdam and Nonesuch Records. A video for “Alleluia” from the Mass, the third video for the project made by Deborah Johnson / CandyStations, can be seen here. Snider’s Mass, with a libretto by poet/writer Nathaniel Bellows, is a celebration of, and an elegy for, the natural world—animals, plants, insects, the planet itself—an appeal for greater awareness, urgency, and action. Originally commissioned by Trinity Church Wall Street, this recording features the English vocal ensemble Gallicantus conducted by Gabriel Crouch.

    Tristan Perich’s Drift Multiply, for 50 violins and 50-channel 1-bit electronics, will be released November 13, 2020, on New Amsterdam and Nonesuch Records, and is available to preorder now. The piece, Perich’s largest work to date, is conducted by Douglas Perkins. Scored as one hundred individual lines of music, the piece blends violins and speakers into a cascading tapestry of tone, harmony, and noise. The violins perform from sheet music, while the speakers are each connected to custom-built circuit boards programmed to output 1-bit audio, the most basic digital waveforms made of just ones and zeroes.
