Lalah Hathaway 'Let Go'

The eldest daughter of Eulaulah and Donny Hathaway, Lalah Hathaway is back with a new single and new album, truth be told she never left. Lalah is now signed to recently revived Stax Records.Lalah describes her first single 'Let Go', a mid-tempo track, as a song " that came out of a need for me to let go of the worry, a few pairs of old jeans, and old ideas as well as some people who were taking up too much space in my life. I had to let go in the most literal and metaphorical sense, and breathe through it all with a goal of moving toward peace." Speaking of her new album, Lalah says "I'm very excited about this album. It's very introspective...I'm also excited about being at Stax Records because it is truly the home of soul music in this country." Self Portrait will be in stores June 3.
