In November Leona Lewis’ long-delayed third album Glassheart will be released a full year after originally intended (assuming it doesn’t get pushed back again) and new music has FINALLY emerged during her set at Radio 1′s Hackney Weekend.
Rather than a Leonaballad like ‘Bleeding Love’ or a dance track like ‘Collide’, ‘Come Alive’ is somewhere in the middle. It’s a bit of a dub ballad with the odd squelchy bit and soaring vocal, and though it doesn’t sound particularly amazing in live form it sounds like it could be a keeper on record. Probably not a single, though.
Her set also included ‘Coming Home’ (featuring the country’s new favourite rent-a-rapper Wretch 32), ‘Better In Time’, ‘Bleeding Love’ and ‘Collide’.
Here’s ‘Bleeding Love’ if you fancy it.
