MSN’s Tina Hart took a trip to Hackney to report on a big weekend of music.   
Interview time was tight at this year’s Radio 1 Hackney Weekend on the Saturday but I put a few questions to Leona, following her main stage performance. She chatted about performing in her home town, the sound of her new album and her collaboration with Emeli Sande.

Leona Lewis @ R1 Hackney Weekend: “Emeli Sande is wicked; she’s written my new single that’s out in October”

How was your performance today?
Leona: I’m from Hackney and I think about a hundred family members and friends are here for me. I just felt like I was performing to them, so it was nice. I wanted to kind of have some local talent involved in my set and I thought the Hackney Empire Choir was the best way to do that.

You debuted the track Come Alive on stage today…
Leona: Me, Fraser [producer] and Ina [songwriter] kind of wanted to do an up-tempo song but still remain kind of true to what I do, so we decided to go a tiny bit dubstep, a tiny bit drum and bass and just rocked it.

Is the track a good indication of the album?
Leona: Definitely a piece of it, there’s much more live sounding instrumental songs on there but that’s the strings and live drums. It’s a good mixture of programmed synths and live music as well.

MSN: How did you come to team up with Fraser T Smith [super-producer] on your new album?
Leona: I’ve known Fraser for 12 years and we got together on my EP – he did that whole EP for me and I just wanted to continue to work with him so I asked him to if he’d do the album.

MSN: When are we going to hear it?
Leona: October

MSN: Yay!
Leona: Yaay, finally.

MSN: We spoke to Emeli Sande last summer and she said how much she enjoyed working with you…
Leona: She’s so wicked. She’s written a song on my album which is going to be by single. I’m really excited, she’s so talented and so lovely. The track with Emeli is Trouble and is my new single, that’ll be in October as well.

It’s quite dark, it’s very deep, with amazing lyrics and it’s just coming from the heart really. It’s good to just collaborate with her as well because she really gets where I’m coming from, she’s like a sister.

Fraser T Smith is overseeing production of Leona Lewis’s entire next album, making it the first time a producer has worked across one of her releases.

The co-writer of Adele’s Set Fire To The Rain and Taio Cruz’s Break Your Heart told Music Week that, while other producers were working on what will be in Glassheart her third studio set, he was taking a production role for the whole album as well as co-authoring about half its tracks.

This approach is entirely different to Lewis’s first two albums Spirit and Echo, which were littered with different songwriters and producers across their tracks, among them Max Martin, Dr Luke, Stargate, Ryan Tedder and Steve Mac.

Smith suggested having one producer overseeing everything would result in Lewis “making an artist album rather than it being a collection of songs”.

When having a mixture of producers for one album he reckoned “you end up with maybe two or three radio songs and not necessarily the album sales you want”.

“It’s been amazing,” he said. “It’s been a great challenge to come up with a vision at the beginning of how we wanted it to sound and I hope to be able to do more projects like that in the future.”

“People have preconceptions of what Leona is so you want to keep the essence of that and keep pushing the boundaries,” added Smith who is signed to Sony/ATV Music Publishing.

He revealed the Syco album, which has been given a release date of November 26, was now about 80% finished. “We’ve got the key tracks and we’re very close. She’s done some fantastic vocals and is making a very relevant record and a very important record for her. The songs are really strong,” he said.

What’s happened to Leona Lewis?. The answer is to be found in a recording studio in down-town Los Angeles where 26-year-old Leona ” is spending pretty well all my waking hours on the album which is going to be the best thing I’ve ever done.-

Already the album, called Glassheart, has taken over a year to make. Leona’s third studio album, it was scheduled for release last November but has now been rescheduled for this autumn.

“I want to get it absolutely right,- Leona says.- It’s very different from anything I’ve done before. I know there’s a lot riding on it.I can’t afford not to get it right.

“I wanted more dance elements as well as some big ballads. I knew there has been a long delay but I’m certain the finished result will be worth it!-

After splitting from long-time partner Lou Al Chamaa, Leona become a familiar figure on the celeb party circuit. She spent 7,000 pounds on champagne in a Mayfair night-club and was seen partying in Hamburg with 22-year-old dancer Dennis Jauch, who was said to “think the world of her.-

A friend close to Leona said:- Her split from Lou was liberating for her.

She told us she doesn’t know why she waited so long to be single and has no intention of getting into another serious relationship at the moment. But that doesn’t mean she can’t have a good time.-

But now insiders say that they can’t remember when they last saw the pop diva out of the town.

“This new album has taken over her life,- says one.- There is so much riding on it and the long delays have piled on the pressure.

“Leona knows that if Glassheart is a flop it could very seriously damage her career and she’s determined that this won’t happen.

It’s only six years ago, Leona was a receptionist in a London office and making extra money as a pizza waitress. Now she has a fortune of over $10 million.

Leona attributes most of her pop success to the man who has masterminded her records -” legendary California produce Clive Davis, the man who guided Whitney Houston and Alicia Keys to superstardom, and who has guided her career in the US.

“I knew how successful and famous he was and felt really nervous, but we hit it off from the start,- Leona says.

“He gave me the confidence to rise to the challenge I had been given and although there were times when I thought it was all beyond me and I should go back to my job in an office, it all worked out in the end.-

One of over 4,000 hopefuls who auditioned for the 2006 X Factor, Leona had wanted to sing and dance since she was a toddler.

“I went to a stage school and had been in many talent competitions, but never quite made it,- she remembers.

“This time I was certain I had as good a chance as anyone.-

When she auditioned in London, X Factor judges were astounded by the power and the range of her voice.

Simon Cowell remembered: “Contestants are always told not to sing Mariah Carey or Whitney Houston numbers because they’ll never match them. Leona was the incredible exception.-

“She’s fifty times better than any other contestant who has been on the show,- said Take That star Gary Barlow whose group sang with Leona during the X-Factor final, watched by 10 million viewers.

And pop multimillionaire Simon Cowell, who is now guiding her career, added: “She is one of the most talented singers ever to come out of the UK.-

“My dad taught me to be positive but level-headed about the future, but my mum is more of a dreamer and more emotional like me.
