Single Review: Lianne La Havas – Bittersweet

lianne la havas bittersweet

Lianne La Havas returns with solo material since 2015
It took her almost five years, but Lianne La Havas is finally back with new solo material. The British soul singer-songwriter just dropped her brand new single ‘Bittersweet’, which follows up 2015’s sophomore record BloodOn ‘Bittersweet’, Lianne La Havas sounds exactly how we want her to sound. Over a rich and soulful instrumentation with a jazzy piano (sometimes reminiscent of Alicia Keys during her The Diary Of era), La Havas gives us those warm and elegant vocals we missed so much. During the chorus, she belts the words ‘Bittersweet summer rain, I am born again’, with more power and intensity every single time the line comes around. The singer produced the tune with Matt Hales and Beni Giles and they did a wonderful job at underlining the beautiful melodies with a beautiful choir and surging instrumentation during the chorus. One thing became clear today: Lianne La Havas still got what it takes!
