Every song we’ve heard from Lianne La Havas’ upcoming self-titled album has been fire so far and “Can’t Fight” is no different. The track is dedicated to couples who are experiencing the ups and downs in a relationship and things may be more complicated than people understand. Lianne had this to say about the new single:
“‘Can’t Fight’ is that feeling of you know it’s not good, but you can’t not do it. People say if you’re having a hard time in a relationship, just leave. It’s so easy to say, but it’s so much more complicated than that. Because there’s two of you, and neither of you are perfect. And there are things that you’re learning along the way. You think, ‘Well, let me do a little bit of work and just see if we can get that feeling back — it’s possible because we do really love each other.’ I guess at the time, I was convinced that, yes, it’s hard, but we can get through this.”
La Havas’ third studio album is due out July 17.
