From Lianne La Havas’ Is Your Love Big Enough?
Liner notes: With her acoustic guitar, London-based La Havas sings of intergenerational romance, cooing, “Is it such a problem if he’s old?/As long as he does whatever he’s told?”
Behind the music: The daughter of Greek and Jamaican parents, La Havas has toured with Bon Iver and worked with fellow up-and-comers Christian Pinchbeck (Elephant), Paloma Faith, and Willy Mason.
