West London singer songwriter Lava La Rue has unveiled her latest single, ‘Humanity’. The track has been accompanied by a lyric video and is the second single taken from her upcoming album, ‘STARFACE’.

La Rue has been making waves in the alternative music space for the best part of six years and draws upon influences from the likes of David Bowie and Gorillaz. Her melodic vocal tones coupled with her exquisite songwriting ability put the artist in a league of her own.

Speaking on her latest single, La Rue states:

“This might be the most vulnerable I’ve ever been on a song. The verses follow a very literal experience about losing a friendship to addiction, but every time the chorus hits, it evolves into a response/reminder to not give up on humanity even when you feel like humanity has given up on you. 

It’s about cherishing the everyday moments/connections that let you know that there is just as much light as there is dark…and using those moments to restore your energy so you have the will to keep fighting for what you believe in. 

The most radical thing we can do right now is to keep giving a fuck. To keep pointing out all the good stuff amongst the bad. People on both sides try and make us feel futile by preaching about peace and love but if we don’t – who will? I guarantee the hope that “things can get better – how can I make this happen” will get us further that “it’s all fucked” The most radical thing is to keep loving.”
