Lianne La Havas, ‘Forget’ – Video Premiere
She might only be 23, but don’t let her age fool you — Lianne La Havas is a gifted multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and vocalist whose prodigious gifts have fueled an impressively fast-rising career.
Already a Top 5 success on the charts in her native U.K., La Havas’ full-length debut release ‘Is Your Love Big Enough?’ made its way to our shores in August and is now available on iTunes, and the lead single, ‘Forget,’ is ready for heavy rotation on your personal playlist.
The ‘Forget’ video, premiering exclusively on Diffuser.fm and our sister site, PopCrush, finds La Havas strolling confidently through the city on a sunny day, reflecting the song’s rubbery, insistent beat and instantly memorable chorus. “If you hear my sound advice, there is no need to tell you twice,” she sings, and while the line in the song functions as a kiss-off to an unworthy lover, it also works as an introduction to American audiences waiting to make her acquaintance.
‘Is Your Love Big Enough?’ follows three successful overseas EP releases, including the free ‘Live in L.A.,’ as well as a North American tour with Bon Iver. This fall, she’s scheduled to perform at New York’s Bowery Ballroom before embarking on a run of U.S. dates with John Legend.
