New Album: Lalah Hathaway - "VANTABLACK" | Announces The VANTABLACK Tour

Five-time Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter, producer and activist Lalah Hathaway has released her eighth studio album VANTABLACK on all music platforms via Hathaway Entertainment/SRG-ILS Group (Virgin Music Group).

The 16-track album includes the singles “Mood for You”, “I Am” and “So in Love” and features an all-star line-up of guest appearances from Common, MC Lyte, Michael McDonald, Rapsody, WILLOW, Phonte and Gerald Albright.

"VANTABLACK was always the name of the project. 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 of all of me." -Lalah Hathaway.

Lalah Hathaway has announced the VANTABLACK Tour coming to a city near you.
