Lianne La Havas (by guest author Timur)

Update 07/24/2020: Timur is proud and honored to say that Lianne La Havas has personally liked his story on Instragram.

 

The story below was written by my 11 year old son. His big idol is Lianne La Havas. A few days ago he bought the latest album and wrote a story about it on his own (Dutch only) blog Timur’s verhalen (ie Timur’s stories). On November 24th, 2019, he placed Lianne La Havas’ What You Don’t Do at the number one position of Timur’s top ten best songs of all time. As far back as August 5th, 2016, when he was just 7 years old, he already wrote about liking Lianne La Havas very much, see My favorite music, part 2 (by guest author Timur)!

The translation into English has been done by this blog’s owner, who also happens to be the proud father of the author of this article. I have tried to emulate Timur’s way of writing as much as I possibly could.

Should you like this story, please pay a visit to Timur’s own article on his blog: Lianne La Havas by Timur’s verhalen. It is in Dutch, but it will help his view count, which I hope will go though the roof. Thanks in advance!


Hello everyone, nice of you all to come here again and read my latest story. My story is about Lianne La Havas, a singer I am a huge fan of. She recently released a new album and I think the songs are super beautiful. Before this album came out I found the album Blood to be her best, but maybe now it is the new album by Lianne La Havas. At the end of this story I will tell which song I think is the very best of all the albums Lianne La Havas has released. If it is at all possible for me to choose, that is, because I really think it’s all ridiculously beautiful.

Now I will write down all songs from every album by Lianne La Havas.

And ofcourse, when I knew that a new Lianne La Havas was released I immediately bought the cd (even before my father). So yes, luckily I once again own all of her cd’s, because I already had Blood and Is Your Love Big Enough?, so now I will show you my personal copy of the cd.

  3. Lost & found
