Blood is the second full-length album from Lianne La Havas. La Havas was born in London to a Greek father and Jamaican mother and began singing at age seven. Her father taught her piano and guitar basics, and she started writing songs at a young age. La Havas signed to Warner Bros. Records in 2010, but took her time developing her skills before releasing any music. Her debut album came out in 2012. With the new follow-up record Blood, Lianne La Havas continues to write, sing and play smart, sophisticated songs in a jazzy neo-soul style.
