honestly – a fitting title for the new album from artist, songwriter, producer and DJ, Lalah Hathaway. Both low-key and legendary, the gentle power of Hathaway’s irrepressible and boundary-defying voice has gone unmissed by those with their ear to the ground…
Lalah will perform a headline show at Whelan’s, 4th July.
As a recipient of 5 Grammy awards since 2014 alone, including a win as Artist and Producer for 2017’s Best R&B Album Lalah Hathaway Live, Lalah’s track record speaks for itself. Her collaboration list includes Pharrell Williams and Kendrick Lamar, her Grammy wins have set new records, and her performance history has seen invitations to the stage from icons including Prince; Mary J Blige; Stevie Wonder; Herbie Hancock and Anita Baker.
honestly is an invitation to join Lalah on a personal journey. A testament to the human experience: it’s intimate, disruptive and, time-appropriately, honest. the colorful palette of this album recalls a feeling of child’s play, powerfully juxtaposed with hard-hitting beats and cut with the songs’ piercing subject matters. On latest single, ‘honestly’ the album’s title- track, Lalah notes:
‘I really want to create a pattern interruption for the fans. if you listen to the song ‘honestly’ it tells you about the end of a dream. it’s a love song about love lost. when people see the video I want them to consider ‘honestly’ as a commentary on this moment, the nightmare that is this time and space we are living in.’
