Despite the disappointing chart result of her most recent single ‘Fire Under My Feet’, Leona Lewis is not planning to give in to defeat. On the contrary, the English singer songwriter has unveiled the audio for what’s considered to be her her brand new single ‘I Am’.
Opting for a slightly different approach with the release of ‘Thunder’ as lead single in the States, Europe gets treated to the string-packed mid tempo single ‘I Am’, which is written by Toby Gad and Francis White, a pair who are no strangers to working with X Factor contestants. The duo were responsible for Ella Henderson’s debut single ‘Ghost’ last year.
Will the odds ever be in favour of Leona with ‘ I Am’? There’s a bit of a ‘Emeli Sande’ whiff surrounding the track, and we quite like the feel of it. Find out for yourself below:
British singer songwriter and international superstar Leona Lewis has unveiled a new track, taken from her upcoming fifth studio album ‘I Am’.
And by the sounds of it, the diva we all fell in love with, is back to her former glory with the very beautiful, intimate ballad ‘Essence of Me’.
The track received its first radio play on BBC Radio 2 yesterday on Graham Norton’s show, and much like its predecessor, the lead single ‘Fire Under My Feet’, there’s plenty of references to be found in the lyrics to Lewis departure from Syco. (I’ve been everything you wanted me to be, Let you chip away at my self esteem..). Isn’t it great to hear that familiar Leona Lewis diva sound again?
Lewis departed last year from Syco after 7 years since winning the X Factor and signed a new record deal with Island Records. The singer’s already confirmed a lot of the tracks on her upcoming studio album, have been influenced by the departure.
British superstar Leona Lewis is back with brand new material. The most successful solo artist and winner, coming from the X Factor franchise has moved on from Syco, and found a new home under Island Records.
The singer unveiled the studio version of her upcoming new single ‘Fire Under My Feet’ yesterday via her Youtube Channel. Written by Toby Gad, Fire Under My Feet is the lead single taken from her upcoming new album, I Am, the first she’s releasing under a new record label, since departing with Syco Music. It’s an arousing, soulful sounding pop track, which as the video showcases starts acoustic, but really blossoms throughout.
Leona Lewis, ladies and gentlemen, has returned and is here to stay!
The single will be out June 7 as a digital download.
