    Watch: Lianne La Havas Shares Video for "Tokyo"

    English singer/songwriter/guitarist Lianne La Havas, who will perform at Club Quattro in Shinsaibashi, Japan, next month, has just released the official video for "Tokyo," a song she co-wrote with Matt Hales for her Grammy Award–nominated second album, Blood. The video was shot on location in Tokyo by director Ravi Dhar. You can watch it below.

    Blood was released in late 2015 by Nonesuch Records in the US to critical acclaim; Pitchfork called it "dynamic and poignantly self-assured in its introspection … an almost seamless album." Her 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.
