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 October 7th. The single is taken from Leona’s forthcoming third album ‘Glassheart’, which is released the following week on October 14th.
‘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.
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’ feat. Childish Gambino is released on the October 7th on Syco Music. The track will get it’s first radio play next Tuesday, August 21st, on Radio 1.
