    Watch: Lianne La Havas Performs for The Current

    Lianne La Havas, whose self-titled new album is out tomorrow on Nonesuch in the US and who gave a live concert from the Roundhouse in London last night, performed a few songs from home for Minneapolis Public Radio's The Current and spoke with host Sean McPherson about the new album and more. You can watch the full session, including her performance of "Courage" and "Bittersweet" from Lianne La Havas and "Green & Gold" from her 2015 album Blood, and her conversation with McPherson, below.

    "I wanted to leave things in their most natural state," she says of recording the new album. "I feel like I can hear when something has gone too far or something is too produced for my taste. And I think my style of production on this album is definitely a more natural approach, or the more kind of haphazard, use-what-you've-got-there, DIY approach. But of course, we used some amazing equipment!"

    Brad Mehldau's new album, Suite: April 2020, is now available on CD and standard vinyl, following the release of the digital and limited-edition deluxe vinyl editions earlier this year. While sheltering at home with his family in the Netherlands during the COVID-19 pandemic this spring, Mehldau wrote twelve new songs about what he was experiencing; he was able to record them safely in an Amsterdam studio, along with interpretations of three tunes that mean a great deal to him. One thousand numbered and signed copies of the deluxe edition were sold, with a minimum of $90 from each sale donated to the Jazz Foundation of America’s COVID-19 Musician’s Emergency Fund. Brad Mehldau has several solo concerts in Europe ahead.
