Soul vocalist Lianne La Havas dropped her impressive self-titled album this past summer, and it got a coveted "VERY HOTTTT" rating from a handful of you down in the comments. Now she's following up with a more slowed-down approach than usual, delivering beautiful acoustic live renditions of fan-favorite songs with her newly-released EP Live At The Roundhouse.

Everything that Havas' fans love about her is present throughout this five-song EP, be it vocals that go from feather-light to surprising strong in an instant or the overall airiness of her songs that ascend your mind to levels of unmatched peacefulness. "Bittersweet" has become a standard song to her catalogue, and hearing this version of the standout song only illustrates further how amazing of a vocalist she is. The EP itself was originally recorded back in July during a livestream at The Roundhouse venue in London, hence the album title, but the songs come out sounding timeless in a way that gives the project replay value for years to come. If you're in need of a lowkey vibe or just something to relax your mind from the craziness that's been 2020, Lianne La Havas has got you covered with a form of ear candy that's short, sweet and definitely worth more than a few spins.
