It’s good news for Leona Lewis fans, as the X Factor champion has seemingly been working on a big dance track. The 31-year-old Londoner has been in the studio with Swedish DJ Alesso, working on brand new material.
The producer confirmed the news on Twitter last night, also revealing that the writing session involved Autumn Rowe. For those of you not familiar with Autumn, she’s an American singer-songwriter who previously worked with Leona on her Avicii dance anthem ‘Collide’.

It will be the first new material from Leona Lewis since the release of her fifth studio album I Am back in September 2015.
The British star recently embarked on a headline tour of the UK in support of the album, while also travelling across America to promote it. Leona has also put her own spin on Elton John’s famous ballad ‘Your Song’ for a new tourism campaign.
Alesso, meanwhile, has had four Top 10 singles in the UK over the past few years, including 2014’s ‘Heroes’, featuring Tove Lo.
The DJ’s latest single, ‘I Wanna Know’, features Nico & Vinz and is out now
What a wonderful surprise ahead of her UK Tour! A travel compagny revealed their exclusive advert, featuring Leona Lewis delivering an exclusive performance of Elton John’s classic hit “Your song”. The song has previsously been covered by the amazing Ellie Goulding! Have a listen … it’s just wonderful! So … Hit or Miss ?
Earlier today we reported that Louisa Johnson has vowed to beat the X Factor Curse that has seen many of the winners flop within the first couple of years of their career.We know that Louisa is a MASSIVE fan of Leona Lewis, and Louisa has even credited Lewis for being the inspiration behind her auditioning for the new in the first place as she would love to emulate the same amount of success that Leona has had.
It goes without saying that Leona has been, by far, the most successful winner that has hailed from The X Factor over its history. Now could Leona Lewis help Louisa out by featuring on her debut album?
Well, if Louisa had her way it would more than likely happen. Hell, Ben Haenow had Kelly Clarkson feature on his debut single, so we’re sure that Syco could stretch to Leona Lewis for Louisa because we think the duet would be FIRE. In fact, Leona said that she really liked Louisa’s voice, so maybe it could happen. We’d love for it to go down. Louisa told The Sun newspaper: “The dream is to emulate Leona. She was the person who encouraged me to go on the show. She inspired me. I met her during rehearsal on Saturday.
“It was so weird, speaking to the person who made me want to go on X Factor. She said she’d seen me perform and she liked my voice. I wanted to be like her so much, I looked up to her and now I am here”.
She went on to add that she has wanted to be on the show for so many years, and to win it is a dream come true. As for what else Leona told her, Louisa admitted that she told her to just be herself.
“It’s literally the best advice, because it’s so true. You’ve just got to be yourself,” she admitted.
Louisa’s debut single – a cover of Bob Dylan’s Forever Young – is available to download now via iTunes.

Leona Lewis has been getting ALL the promo this past weekend as not only did she duet with Taylor Swift, but she’s also performed with none other than Jason Derulo.
We reported yesterday that Leona Lewis recently took to the stage with the amazing Taylor Swift in Nashville, in which the pair performed Leona’s smash hit, Bleeding Love. It’s definitely a duet we never saw coming, and there were no rumours beforehand that Leona would be taking to the stage.
But, as much of a surprise that it was, it was a perfect performance as Leona was on point. We’d love to see a proper powerhouse duet with Taylor and Leona in the future.
However, on Friday evening Leona Lewis lined up another special duet and this time it was with Jason Derulo on his track, Want to Want Me.
“Happy Friday buns! Having a fun moment, check out my duet w/ Jason Derulo,” she wrote on Facebook as she posted the video of their duet.
Sadly, the duet only took place over Smule’s Sing! Karaoke app, where fans can sing duets with their favourite artists, and we have to say, Leona out-sung Jason Derulo on his own track.
Jason also noticed the duet, as he tweeted a link to the video, and wrote: “Here’s me and @leonalewis duetin wit’ her sexy ass #WantToWantMe”.
Check out the performance below…
