JiHAE brings music from her new album, Illusion of You, to Los Angeles this week at a live show in Hollywood.

The new album from JiHAE features a sultry rendition of a Leonard Cohen poem and collab with Eurythmics' Dave Stewart but the sound is entirely her own.

The new album from musician JiHAE features a duet with Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics and a sultry rendition of a Leonard Cohen poem. But the sound from the New York-based artist – who draws from her international upbringing in South Korea, Nigeria and Sweden – is entirely her own.

"My biggest goal has always been, as an artist, to be honest," she told Take Two, during a visit to the studios. "To be myself and to find myself."

Watch the music video for the song, "It Just Feels," starring Norman Reedus, of "Walking Dead" fame:
