In five days’ time, British singer-songwriter LANRE will hit you between the eyes with her powerful new single, Human, the first release from her forthcoming EP of the same name.
A strong acoustic drive makes its way to introduce the latest effort, leading into an unexpected marshmallowy fusion of soul/folk. Influenced by her Yoruba heritage, the captivating delivery contains compelling messages such as, ‘We’re all broken so that light can come in’, giving the most-worn out listener that glimmer of hope.
Born in Stoke-On-Trent in England, LANRE has spent most of her youth in Nigeria where she started singing and performing live from the age of eight. In 2002, the flamed-haired songstress toured around the globe as a member of award-winning UK collective GK REAL. This experience ignited in her the desire to pursue a solo career with the launch of the debut album Pen Voyage Chapter One: Singing For Change in 2011 followed by the critically acclaimed EP Home in 2014 (praised by MOBO, MTV UK among others).
Her new EP Human is set to be released on April 29th. This new record is a collection of uplifting songs, which encapsulates the essence and depth of this newcomer’s artistry. Relating the struggles and celebrations of life, Human is a hopeful hymn to togetherness. So if you like what you hear, pre-order your copy the EP with the immediate release of the single.
