Havana Releases ‘Entervention’ + Exclusive “Daylight” MP3


San Diego based songstress Havana returns with her sophomore album entitled Entervention (released May 10th). Juxtaposing her present life with what she witnessed in her past, Havana cites this work as her opportunity to share feelings that have troubled her for quite some time. The album showcases a more electronic and upbeat sound compared to her previous release, and features production from Brook D’Leau of J*Davey, GB (Dwight Trible and Shafiq Husayn), and Trackademicks. Havana and her crew have graciously offered the Giant Step community an exclusive free download of “Daylight” for y’all to have a little taste of the project. Don’t be shy.
