Lianne announces the release of a two-part video with Noisey.com and Essence.com for singles “Elusive” and “Gone”. Director Colin Solal Cardo (La Blogotheque) said of their partnership:
“I’ve been collaborating with Lianne for more than a year now, but working on this project felt like something completely new. Lianne’s a brilliant storyteller, there’s a true cinematic quality to her songs. When you listen to them, you go through all these emotions and narratives, like a collection of short movies. We felt like it was finally time to build a world around these songs, give life to these love stories and let Lianne actually become these characters. Be it a candid young girl falling in love, or a heartbroken femme fatale in the middle of the woods. I feel fortunate for the trust relationship I have with Lianne, it’s something any music video director has to cherish because it’s rare and precious. Ultimately, that’s what allows an ambitious project like this one to exist.”
UK songstress Lianne La Havas covers “He Loves Me” by Jill Scott in a live acoustic session for Billboard. Perfect.
“I like how literal it is and how detailed it is. She even goes as far as to say how he loves her from her hair follicles to her toenails.”
Dude, LaBlogotheque, I wan’t to work for you. Please? Lianne kills this live performance in the streets of Le Marais neighborhood in Paris.
Off Is Your Love Big Enough. If you haven’t checked that album out yet you’re missing out.
Off Lianne La Havas’s debut album Is Your Love Big Enough. This chick is dope.
This video makes me realize once again that I need to go back to Paris! For now I’ll have to settle for Tahoe… Have a great fourth of July everyone!
