Bettye LaVette’s new album, LaVette!, sees the artist partner once again with producer Steve Jordan–who founded Jay-Vee Records with Meegan Voss. Her recent success with a sample on an Odesza single has brought her deep soulful voice to a new and young audience. The album is made up of Randall Bramlett covers that Bettye’s sultry vocal style really made into new compositions.
The album’s lead single, “Plan B,” released back in March, is a powerful ballad about resilience and determination. LaVette’s vocals are raw and emotional, and the song’s message is one of hope and strength.
LaVette is a Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter with a long and storied career. She has released over 20 albums and has collaborated with some of the biggest names in music, including Bonnie Raitt, Elton John, and John Legend. LaVette is a true icon of American soul music, and her new album is sure to be a hit with fans old and new.
