Lianne La Havas – “Unstoppable”

Nouveau soul goddess and kick-ass guitarist Lianne La Havas has returned, and her sophomore album Blood is out this summer. Back in 2012 her debut Is Your Love Big Enough? earned a number of awards and drew fans like Stevie Wonder and Prince into her orbit. Perhaps the lead single from her new record “Unstoppable” must draw on the confidence of those touchstones, because it’s a buoyant, sweeping track that glories in the kind of relationship that spurs both parties to unspeakable heights. Flickers of rich, velvety rhythm guitar top off this song’s weightless, cosmic pull. La Havas’ voice makes even the smallest detail sound like a revelation, and “Unstoppable” has the sweet, Disney appeal of a hot air balloon ride romance. Listen below.

Here’s the full Blood tracklist:

01 “Unstoppable”
02 “Green & Gold”
03 “What You Don’t Do”
04 “Tokyo”
05 “Wonderful
06 “Midnight”
