Leona Lewis Delays Album Release Until November
Leona Lewis has pushed back the release of her third album, ‘Glassheart,’ once again delaying the long awaited album until November.
The songbird was originally set to drop her LP last summer, but it was subsequently bumped to March 2012. Now, That Grape Juice reports that Amazon has re-listed the album to arrive on Nov. 26. According to the news site, Clive Davis has to made the release his “pet project,” and has recruited talents like will.i.am and Polow Da Don to reshape the album.
In December, Lewis released ‘The Hurt EP,’ which features covers of Nine Inch Nails‘ ‘Hurt’ (the Johnny Cash interpretation), Goo Goo Dolls‘ ‘Iris’ and Counting Crows’ ‘Colorblind.’ In the press release for the three-song digital EP, Lewis was said to be working with British producer Fraser T. Smith, who has worked with the likes of Adele, Kylie Minogue and Britney Spears. The EP was intended to satiate fans while Lewis was completing her ‘Glassheart’ LP.
Lewis won the third season of ‘X Factor‘ in 2006, and became a multi-platinum selling artist and three-time Grammy Award nominee with the help of her smash hit ‘Bleeding Love.’ Since then, she’s enjoyed moderate success with her sophomore album, ‘Echo,’ so it’ll be interesting to see what she brings to the table with her forthcoming effort.
