New Music: Lalah Hathaway - "I Am" (from Upcoming Album "VANTABLACK")

Five-time Grammy Award winning singer, songwriter, producer and activist Lalah Hathaway has released her new single "I Am" to all streaming and digital music platforms.

"I Am" serves as the second single following "So In Love" from Hathaway's anticipated eighth studio album VANTABLACK which will be globally released on June 14th, 2024.

About the song, Hathaway shares:

"I Am, I think people will be delighted to hear me with some tempo! I’m always trying to figure out how to apply these lush tones over dance music! How can i be featured on the subwoofer in your G Wagon? This is a 4 on the floor full of positive affirmation…I think i may have cracked the code!."

"VANTABLACK was always the name of the project. The word itself has so much weight on it, I was really unsure of how to approach the idea of writing the song. At the time, what I thought were conflicting perspectives, actually began to shape the concept of not only this album but also how I saw myself. I started reframing how I saw color, in terms of being the blackest I've ever been and even though I'm steeped in who I am, it doesn't exclude the other things that make up the sum of me. Similar to how all the music around me informs the black music that I create. So it's all a melting pot and this song truly exemplifies that." -Lalah Hathaway
