Seven years on from first stepping into the limelight and some 20 million single and album sales later, global singing sensation Leona Lewis returns with her brand new, much anticipated single Trouble on 7th October. The single is taken from Leona’s forthcoming third album Glassheart, which is released the following week on 14th Octobe
Trouble is an anguished epic journey that reveals ethereal, haunting tones that simultaneously showcase the sheer power and intimacy of Leona’s incredible voice. Trouble was written by a stellar cast of home grown talent; Emeli Sande, Naughty Boy, Craze and Hoax, Fraser T Smith and Leona herself, resulting in a standout track that she is incredibly passionate about.
Trouble was produced by Fraser T Smith and Naughty Boy.
Of the track Leona said, ‘Trouble tells the story of love going bad and becoming destructive, aspects of which we can all relate to. It’s a deeply emotional and poignant song that I have a real connection to.’
US rapper Childish Gambino brings an extra something special to the track with his featured rap. Leona said, ‘I wanted someone who was creative and poetic and witty and he ticks all those boxes and compliments the record perfectly.’
Trouble is the first track to be released from Leona’s third album Glassheart. A real labour of love, Leona has spent time putting together an album that she is immensely proud of. It was during a recording session with esteemed producer Fraser T Smith (Adele, Florence & The Machine, Plan B, Britney Spears) that Leona really found the soul of Glassheart, so much so that she brought Fraser on board to exec-produce the whole album. The result is an inspired and passionate follow-up to her previous two Number 1 albums.
Trouble marks the highly anticipated return of the UK’s Number 1 vocalist and, as only Leona can, delivers a superior world class performance that was well worth the wait.
Trouble feat. Childish Gambino is released on the October 7th on Syco Music
