Audio: LIRA Debuts With Self-Titled EP (Full Stream Inside!)


Amazing South African songstress LIRA hits the U.S. with a splash today with her self-titled EP, LIRA - streaming right here, below. As usual, Okayplayer's Eddie "STATS" said it best:

As trumpeted, after a whirlwind tour of North America, Afro-soul diva LIRA drops her self-titled EP today. We could go on about how fly she is (shit, you ain’t blind) or how many nominations, awards, platinum records and magazine covers she has racked up in her native South Africa but the internet only has so much ink in it (a lot, she has racked up a lot of accolades). Maybe better if you stream the whole damn EP below and feel the silk yourself. Stream below, purchase here and stay tuned for the full-length Feel Good LP which is slated for January 31st.
