Leyla McCalla Shares New Single ‘Love We Had’

    Leyla McCalla has unveiled a new single, ‘Love We Had’, taken from her upcoming LP Sun Without the Heat. Originally written and performed by Ethiopian artist and activist Ali Mohammed Birra, the track follows the previously released ‘Scaled to Survive’ and ‘Tree’. Listen to it below.

    McCalla’s new LP is out April 12 via ANTI-. “Usually, I go into the studio and have the songs and the framework already in mind,” she said of the recording process. “But with this album, we built the frame in real time. It was an intimidating process, but it also helped me realize how held I am by the musicians I work with.”
