Lianne La Havas has shared her new cover of Radiohead‘s “Weird Fishes”, which first appeared on the British rock band’s 2007 In Rainbows LP. The new recording acts as the fourth single to appear on Lianne La Havas’s forthcoming self-titled studio album, due out July 17th.
The arrival of “Weird Fishes” on Thursday follows La Havas’s previously-released singles from the Lianne La Havas tracklist in “Bittersweet”, “Paper Thin”, and “Can’t Fight”. The forthcoming studio album will be the singer and guitarist’s first since 2015’s Blood, which went on to be nominated for “Best Urban Contemporary Album” at the 2016 Grammy Awards.
For her nearly-six-minute take on the Radiohead original, La Havas stays true to the song’s spirit while providing her own creative take on the dreamy rock track. Her soothing and confident vocal lines take the front seat as supported by atmospheric synth chords, a sturdy drum beat, and angelic background harmonies. The music swirls around La Havas’s commanding voice and trademark swagger as the song gradually ascends to its climactic peak where she soars with comfort and control.
Listen to her new cover below.
