Lianne La Havas is 10 songs that span the arc of a love relationship. The album's opener, Bittersweet functions as a kind of an overture, setting out what follows, before the giddy, love-struck rush of Read My Mind. If these first few songs suggest a flower opening its petals, that's no coincidence: "What plays a big role in the album is the idea of the life cycle of plants and nature - equating this journey with a seasonal thing that blooms, thrives, goes away, and comes back even stronger," La Havas says. Over the five years it took for the album to come together, she found herself watching the changing foliage outside her window in south London, struck by how she was growing and changing herself - not always comfortably. "A flower has to dry up and die in order to be reborn," she says. "You have to get to the rock bottom to rebuild yourself."
