Lafawndah announces debut album and Midori Takada live performance

By | Published on Wednesday 16 January 2019


Lafawndah has announced her debut album ‘Ancestor Boy’, setting it up well with the release of one of her strongest singles to date, ‘Daddy’.

News of the first album proper follows the release last year of her second ‘Honey Colony’ mixtape, which was then expanded out into a live performance at the Southbank Centre in London last month.

They’ll be more interesting live projects once the album is out. She’ll return to the London stage in April with another expanded live version of a recent release, this time a full production based on her 20 minute recording with Japanese composer Midori Takada – ‘Le Renard Bleu – titled ‘Ceremonial Blue’. That will take place at The Barbican on 7 Apr.

Before that, ‘Ancestor Boy’ will arrive via Lafawndah’s own Concordia label on 22 Mar. Listen to ‘Daddy’ here.
