[Weekly Playlist] Hannah Lucia

We were first won over by UK electro-R&B artist Hannah Lucia when we heard her 2015 single “Don’t Hold Out.” Full-bodied synths and Hannah’s earnest vocals grabbed us from the get. Hannah kicks off 2020 with a new single “Sorry for the Mistakes,” which sees the singer delivering her trademark raw, sensual vocals. Lamenting her own flaws within relationships, it’s a bold, vulnerable return that will continue the interest and attention around this most elusive of artists.

“I wrote this track in 2013, when I was living in New York,” Hannah shares about the song. “So you could say it has been a journey but worthwhile one unlike the relationship I am singing about.”

2020 is set to be a promising year for the London based rising artist with much more new music on the way but before that, Hannah shares with us some of her favorite classic tunes that have shaped her into the artist she is today. Take a listen below.

Sarah Vaughn – Broken Hearted Melody
When I’m really down in the dumps – this song can actually make me feel better! Sarah Vaughn’s artistry is impeccable.

Nina Simone – I Wish I Knew How It Feels To Be Free
This is a classic, like feel good tune for me. Also, I love Nina Simone.

Marvin Gaye – Grapevine
Marvin Gaye’s voice and sentiment on this track make it a go to “I can do bad by myself” track FOREVER.

Curtis Mayfield – Pusherman
I actually love the whole “Superfly” album.

Miles Davis – Blue and Green
This record is great to listen to to unwind and because there are no lyrics you can really zone out.

Amy Winehouse – Take the Box
This was one of the sweetest Amy tunes for me, there is a live version which blows my mind from her early days and always brings tears to my eyes.

Alicia Keys – Falling
Alicia Keys at her song writing best, classic tune.

Elvis Presley – Are you Lonesome Tonight?
My mum was always obsessed with Elvis, and it rubbed off on me!

The Beatles – Yesterday
Classic tune, if I am feeling a bit nostalgic.

The Rolling Stones – Satisfaction
This track gets me fired up – I love the stones! I got to see them live at Glastonbury during my first time to the festival in 2015.
