Lianne La Havas - Blood ‘Blood’ is the second studio album by British recording artist Lianne La Havas. Following the release of her critically acclaimed debut ‘Is Your Love Big Enough?’ (2012) La Havas embarked on a variety of tours and festivals before travelling to Jamaica. During La Havas’ time in Jamaica, she attempted to regain a connection with her roots, the exploration inspired La Havas to begin writing the follow up to her debut. Lianne has cited the album as a homage towards her Jamaican and Greek bloodline, which in turn inspired the album’s title. ‘Blood’ is seen as a departure from the acoustic musical leanings of her debut album, taking on a neo soul and Jazz style, with elements of R&B, doo-wop, reggae and gospel music.

Lana Del Rey - Honeymoon

Disclosure - Caracal

After teasing lyrics and snippets of tracks on social media, Lana Del Rey has caused quite the buzz about her fourth studio album, Honeymoon, which is to be released in September. When speaking about the upcoming album, Del Rey said, “It’s growing into something I really like. I’m kind of enjoying sinking into this more noirish feel for this one. It’s been good.” She added that, along with the new music, Honeymoon is likely to feature a cover of Nina Simone’s Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood. She said: “I like summarising the record with a jazz song. I’m having fun with my interpretation.”

Brothers Howard and Guy Lawrence are back with the follow up to 2013’s ‘Settle.’ ‘Caracal’ features collaborations with Nao, Lion Babe, Kwabs and Sam Smith, who sang on the band’s breakthrough single ‘Latch.’ In a statement, Howard Lawrence explained the album title:

“A caracal is an incredible wild cat that I became fascinated with while on tour last year; I just love the way they look, their physical capabilities and their anonymity. It felt like a perfect fit for our Wild Life brand too, so the caracal made perfect sense as the lead visual for the new album and over the course of recording.”
