The band was also the musical guest on a very special episode of A Prairie Home Companion on Saturday, guest-hosted by none other than band member Chris Thile (who won a Grammy Award the very next day for his album with Edgar Meyer, Bass and Mandolin).

Chris Thile sits in for Garrison Keillor on A Prairie Home Companion again this coming Saturday, when label mate Rhiannon Giddens will be the musical guest. You can stream the show live at prairiehome.org.

And tune in to World Cafe on NPR stations across the United States today to hear the band perform and talk with host David Dye about the new album. The band was featured on BBC Scotland's Another Country with Rick Ross, which you can hear here.

    Lianne La Havas's new, self-titled album has made the Best Albums of 2020 lists of the New York Times and NPR Music. Its songs are "brimming with poised musicality," writes the Times's Jon Pareles. "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." NPR's Suraya Mohamed says: "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."
