Following her return to the scene with February’s ‘Bittersweet‘, Lianne La Havas has shared her second new song of the year, alongside announcing her anticipated third studio record.

The new song, ‘Paper Thin’, will join its predecessor on Lianne’s upcoming self-titled album, which follows on from 2015’s ‘Blood’.

Describing the project, the Londoner says “Lianne La Havas is ten songs that span the arc of a love relationship. The album’s opener, ‘Bittersweet’ functions as a kind of an overture, setting out what follows, before the giddy, love-struck rush of ‘Read My Mind’. If these first few songs suggest a flower opening its petals, that’s no coincidence: “What plays a big role in the album is the idea of the life cycle of plants and nature—equating this journey with a seasonal thing that blooms, thrives, goes away, and comes back even stronger.”
