Earlier this year, British singer-songwriter and guitarist Lianne La Havas returned with her first new single in nearly five years, “Bittersweet”. On Monday, La Havas released another new song, entitled “Paper Thin”, which acts as the second single from her forthcoming self-titled studio album due out July 17th via Warner Bros. The new track was one of three tunes Havas selected for her submission to NPR‘s “Tiny Desk (Home) Concert” series, which the media outlet debuted on Tuesday.
The homemade video sees La Havas accompanied by her nylon-string guitar at her home in London with a cup of home-brewed coffee by her side. La Havas wisely placed her camera to focus on being up close to where she’s sitting, giving the viewer a sense of artistic intimacy as if she’s actually playing right in front of you.
The three-song performance also includes “Midnight” from 2015’s Blood and “Bittersweet”. Watch Havas’ “Tiny Desk (Home) Concert” performance in full below.
