Hello everyone! Leona’s ‘Glassheart Tour’ has come to its end and we’re missing it already!! Such an amazing show which a lot of people who attended has qualified as Leona’s best tour yet, due to its intimate and personal character which brought Leona closer to the audience!. I know it’s been days since the final show of the tour, and we’re late with this update, but I had to do the final post for the lasts 3 concerts Leona did. As always we’ve added photos, videos and reviews of each show (if they have them respectively). We’ve also updated our Tours page with all the information about the Glassheart Tour 2013

It seems like last night was an special one for the people who attended Leona’s show at the Royal Concert Hall in Notthingham, as a part of her Glassheart Tour. A positive review from the local website Thisisnottingham.co.uk, shows that Leona’s an amazing artist who’s still delivering amazing concerts, showcasing her magnificent voice and talent. Read Thisisnottingham’s Review bellow:

Yes, doesn’t time fly, but we knew then that the supremely talented Lewis would go on to be the most significant of the TV show’s alumni and so it has proved.
She has now sold more than 20 million records worldwide and is considered a superstar in her own right, long ago breaking the shackles of the reality TV contestant.“The heart was made to be broken” was the dour message spelled out on the veils draped in front of the stage for the Glassheart tour, named after her third and latest album.
Lewis emerged from behind those veils, in a striking full-length red gown, part way through a slowed-down version of Come Alive, actually one of the more upbeat tracks from that latest release.
A beautifully poised rendition of Fireflies followed before a stripped-back take on the song which started it all, A Moment Like This, her X Factor’s winner’s tune and 2006 Christmas No.1.
It was one of many tracks to feature just Lewis, keyboards and a four-strong strings ensemble which kept the focus firmly on those stunning vocals…Read More

We also made a playlist from different videos of Nottingham’s Show last night. Credits to everyone who recorded them. Leona’s sounding AMAZING:

For better or worse, Leona Lewis has long been considered the personification of a sweet lullaby with her sugary tone and belts packed with as much force as a powderpuff. However, by the grace of Simon Cowell’s creative insight, the songbird has finally taken flight and is ready to the world her true potential via her new album, ‘Glassheart’.

Lewis ups the tempo and unleashes full-throated vocals on ‘Glassheart’ as she reminds people that she is one of the most talented singers in the industry today. Yet, the best facet of the record is her clear attempt to distance herself from her previous works, ‘Spirit’ and ‘Echo’, and comparisons to her idol, Mariah Carey.

With the help of producers Fraser T. Smith, Al Shux and DJ Frank E, Lewis emerges as a bold Dance diva on ‘Glassheart’. However, don’t compare her music to the uninspired fodder of her fellow ‘The X Factor (UK)’ alum Alexandra Burke because Lewis’ brand of club-ready tracks are progressive instead of reactive to the current trends on Top 40/Mainstream radio.

Songs such as the bass-heavy ‘Glassheart’ title track depict Lewis as a master vocalist who keeps her voice as a main focus, despite being surrounded by a mix of keys, soaring synths and thumping beats. Even on the Electro ‘Come Alive’, Lewis pushes her vocals above the dramatic production as she soars through the octaves and showcases her impressive range.

Still, both ‘Glassheart’ and ‘Come Alive’ fall flat in comparison to the bonus track ‘Sugar’, which is actually the strongest cut on the entire album. Co-written by Emeli Sande, who clearly based the song on her own ‘Heaven’ hit single, the heart-racing ‘Sugar’ is an extravaganza of rhythm as Lewis’ throaty vibrato rings clearly in the song that builds to an absolutely explosive climax.

However, when the strobe lights are switched off and Lewis resumes her role as a balladeer, the one glaring flaw of the ‘Glassheart’ album is revealed. As a vocalist, Lewis stands with the select few performers of her generation who can actually sing, but her music is still more technically impressive than emotionally expressive.

“…if ‘Favourite Scar’ is a true example of Lewis’ love life then it must be dreadfully one dimensional.”

This is exemplified on ‘Favourite Scar’ where Lewis croons about her a passionate relationship but sounds as believable as Beyonce boasting about her skills as a songwriter. Yes, it is a pleasant change to hear Lewis singing in a lower register of her voice without experiencing her often awkward nasality, but if ‘Favourite Scar’ is a true example of her love life then it must be dreadfully one dimensional. You know, casual walks in the park, promise rings and the only physical contact is holding hands on a Friday when her parents aren’t at home.

‘Stop the Clocks’ and ‘Fingerprint’ are other examples of vocal gymnastics without real conviction. No matter how loud Lewis belts or how many well-executed runs she performs, she simply flips, tumbles and prances around the vocal arena without ever landing on a spot of true emotion.

Luckily, Sande returns to save the day with the gritty ‘I to You’. Kicked off by an intro that is strikingly similar to Alicia Keys’ ‘Try Sleeping with a Broken Heart’, ‘I to You’ is so dark and passionate that even the melodrama of Lewis’ singing can’t completely soften its emotional blow.

‘Colorblind’, however, is rare emotional moment on ‘Glassheart’ and Lewis cleverly sings the song in the form of a climbing crescendo. Exhibiting just the right amount of restraint, this is the type of ballad that demonstrates what she can do when she focuses on bringing the lyrics to life instead of just flaunting her skills as a vocalist.

Perhaps, the only real comparisons between Lewis and Carey can be heard on the mid-tempo ‘When it Hurts’ and ‘Fireflies’. On the former track, Lewis toys with an unexpected staccato approach to singing the verses and florid transitions into her colourful falsetto in a way that would make even the elder diva pay attention.

‘Fireflies’, on the other hand, sounds nothing like the music of Carey until the final sixty seconds when Lewis cues the Lips Choir and a bout of belts at the very top of her range. Indeed, for a split second, it is easy to imagine Carey singing this song in her giant ballerina dress while waving her magic fingers to summon a cloud of butterfly-shaped confetti.

Rounding out the ‘Glassheart’ album are the Darkchild-produced ‘Shake You Up’ – I barely finished typing that song title without breaking into spontaneous hip-shaking – and ‘Lovebird’. Both tunes are definite frontrunners to be future singles, especially in the US where Lewis has not scored a Billboard Hot 100 top 10 hit since ‘Bleeding Love’.

In the end, ‘Glassheart’ is an impressive effort by Lewis as she finally begins her journey toward defining herself as an artist. Despite a few shortcomings, the record is a step in the right direction; away from being the shy girl who won ‘The X Factor (UK)’ competition and closer to becoming a true diva for the current generation of Pop music fans.

October 17, 2012

Almost seven years in the biz and three years since her last  album ‘echoed’ in our ears,  with the exception of Hurt pleasantly filling the cold space in between, Leona Lewis has returned with her third studio album, Glassheart.

There’s no second guessing when it comes to the natural talent of this British songstress. She has hits to shut you up with. But with several delays, including coping with the restructuring of her record label, will third time really be a charm for the soulful lady? Let’s analyze:

I told you you should never follow me. But here we are, and you’re in too deep. I’m a whole lot of trouble” croons Leona in the opening number, appropriately titled ‘Trouble‘. The song’s nicely done; not over-the-top, but not too reserved. I’d say its intriguing nature rests hihly on those dramatic keys, haunting strings and alluring vocals flowing effortlessly along with the hip hop, electropop mashup beat. Trouble depicts the sad side to a relationship, which is actually inspired by the singer’s own past love. That little fact makes the song even more personal and more emotionally charged. I believe the music video plays out the lyrics impeccably well.

Unlove Me continues where the first left off. The relationship is just not working and she knows she has to let go, but in her heart she still wants him to be the one even though its wrong to do so. The pop driven track has solid lyrics and an energetic beat, but offers nothing on the wow factor. A good song in itself, yes, just nothing fantastic. That high pitch ‘unlove me’ repeating in the bridge wasn’t pleasant to my ears either.

After all the back and forth in the relationship, Lovebird portrays a liberated Leona who finally found the strength to let go. Her heart has been set free and she no longer suffers. Throughout the entire song you can feel her new found freedom and how happy she is to be unchained. With every word Lewis pulls you along on her adventure and you can’t help but connect with her on this one. From the musical arrangement to her loosened tones, the song is completely alive. Exceptionally done.

So far the album stayed on an uptempo path with the intensified use of snare drums ever present on her records. Not that you’ll feel tired, because the top three are energetic though on the bittersweet side. But I’m sure by now we’d all want some variety, and an electronized number was quite a surprise.

Dubstep is hot, but the genre doesn’t always come out that way in every song it’s incorporated in. Experimenting is very risky for any artist no matter how bold one is to try something different and a bit unexpected. Fortunately, Come Alive had satisfying results. I believe Leona describes it best, because this song is indeed like “fire through my veins“. Not sure about the concept in comparison to the previous, though. Because the singer has gone from letting him go to now pouring her heart out about wanting his love, which evidently brings her to life if she’s singing out more than ever. One could also interpret this track as being a new start; Leona has found another that has captivated her in every way. Whatever the case, the track showcases a sexy side to the singer. And that techno crossover is absolutely brilliant. Production wise, the song is off the hook. This has the potential to become an album single.

Ballads, where art thou? 

Leona is unleashed on the soulful and passionate Fireflies. The indispensable quality of this track warms the air with its spiritual influence. You’re bound to get enamored by those piano melodies and a smooth toned Lewis in the opening verse, and later getting utterly swept away by her electrifying notes in wild abandon that tug on your heart towards the end.

I To You is sure to leave you breathless, that’s if you ignore its resemblance to Alicia Keys’ Try Sleeping With a Broken Heart in the beginning,  and allow those evocative strings to wrap themselves around you. In fact, the song is drenched in a heavenly orchestral arrangement of strings complimenting Leona’s sensual and raw voice. Hard to describe such an indescribable track. The message conveyed is worth, and what exactly you mean to the person you’ve sacrificed a lot for but who seems to hurt you regardless.

Turn the music up!

The 80′s pop influenced Shake You Up kicks in at the right time to pull listeners out of the sad and defeated state into a more confident and determined drive, while moving your body on the dance floor as well. Though the production took the old school route, modern pop elements are intertwined in the mix to add a fresh sound. The song is definitely about being fed up. She’s ready to move on from it all because he’s undeserving of her love.

And its back to what she does so well…

Stop the Clocks delivers a less than powerful arrangement of pop rudiments but her honey like voice soars sweetly and makes up for the tamed electro beat. But while Favourite Scar has urban aspects fused with pop and hip hop elements, the repetitive nature couldn’t win me over. Aside from that, both served up far from generic lyrics like the previous tracks.

Any song that starts out with “I am numb to the pain…” is definitely going to be about heartbreak. And there’s plenty of those in Leona’s music from the beginning of her career. But once When It Hurts starts playing who can resist the unavoidable force that resounds in her voice, and those inviting melodies that you just have to drown yourself in. The song describes the suffering one goes through in a stressful relationship, and how difficult it is to cope once it ends. The addition of an electric guitar adds emphasis on the emotion behind Leona’s singing, where the truth lies.

Glassheart revitalizes that particular vigor left in Come Alive, possibly because both tracks are dubstep techno fused. The midtempos were delightful while they lasted but I felt as if I was drowning in sorrow and in overwhelming love. So, an uptempo title track was a great idea and impressive switch from all that pain. It’s nice to know Lewis can take on dance; a notion previously demonstrated in the hypnotic Collide and intoxicating Outta My Head from Echo. I enjoyed the dance number a great deal but like all the other tracks has nothing on the incomparable Fingerprint.

The closing track just had to be a ballad, one that’s possessing at that. Leona smooths in on a low but mesmerizing tone while gently poised over ethereal keys, a reverberating yet deeply set drumbeat, and once more the use of storytelling strings. The song’s about loving no one else like that one person, and appreciating all the things that make him irreplaceable. A message that causes heat-rush whenever her voice takes off immensely. I’d say Fingerprint‘s sole purpose was to give a raw display of the singer’s vocal ability. Did it succeed? I believe so.

*A bonus version of Trouble, featuring Childish Gambino, is included on the regular version but its presence is questionable as the rapper’s far from entertaining addition did nothing to make the track hotter than it already is. And of course, you could indulge yourself further in Leona’s sensuality as she calms things down and give you an acoustic session you’ll never forget on the deluxe version. But I must say, though I didn’t before, the title track’s hook in its slower form sounds mighty similar to another huge Ryan Tedder penned song. No need for names, just listen.

Glassheart is an enjoyable third release from the pop artist. The album doesn’t exactly signify growth in terms of concept, because of the reoccurring theme of issues with love in her songs. But the lyrics aren’t recycled either, and it’s interesting to see Leona challenging herself by bringing in a few tracks from outside of the norm. And I’m curious to hear what she’s going to do next, as I’m still waiting for a solid release that I can classify as epic.

Leona Lewis is a fantastic, savvy singer whose vocal chops always seem to outshine her songs. By focusing on hip, detailed dance music instead of gauzy ballads, though, “Glassheart” puts the two on equal ground.

Like most club albums, “Glassheart” pays a lot of attention to production. The songs are decorated like one-bedroom Manhattan apartments; every last inch is crammed with stuff, from keyboards to sweeping strings to throbbing, electro-pop percussion. Miss Lewis‘ voice is pushed to the forefront, and she sounds great, belting out a string of throaty R&B riffs one minute and flipping into a gorgeous, sublime coo the next.

“I’m a whole lot of trouble,” she warns on the first song, a cautionary tale about love on the rocks. She never would have been able to deliver that kind of line on her first two albums, both of which muffled her personality in layers of tame, toothless adult-contemporary pop. “Glassheart” takes its cues from Kylie Minogue and “Confessions”-era Madonna, though, and it proves that Miss Lewis has a serious bite.

It’s third time lucky for Leona Lewis as the famous X Factor champion begins to carve a unique and exciting sound to distance herself from the crowd.

For an artist with such potential for worldwide success, it’s shame that Leona Lewis has, as of yet, failed to live up to expectations. Those who were expecting her to be the next Whitney or Mariah have been left sorely disappointed. Of course, Leona has one of the highest selling albums ever in her debut Spirit and her iconic single Bleeding Love was an undoubtable worldwide smash, but since then her music has failed to reach the same dizzy heights of success; a great shame, considering what a phenomenal talent she is. The issue that many have with Lewis is that, despite her undeniable vocal ability, her music often evokes a sense of apathy and impassivity. As such, six years after her triumphant X Factor victory, Leona Lewis needs to create an eye-catching exciting new sound. Luckily for her, it’s a case of third time lucky as she begins to flirt with a distinctive and exciting new musical direction in third album Glassheart.

From the opening bars of lead single, and album opener Trouble, it’s refreshing to hear that there’s a shift in gear from the earliest possible moment. Although Leona still stays safe with a ballad, gone is the conventional style Leona usually adopts, replaced with an early 90′s Massive Attack style beat. As the record gathers momentum, there is a notable change in style from Leona’s previous albums. Here, although tracks such as Lovebird and Stop The Clocks are conventional ballads, exciting production courtesy of Fraser T Smith and Ammo keep these tracks sounding fresh and exciting, as opposed to dull rehashes of earlier efforts. Notable also, is Fireflies, a track so beautifully executed, that by the time the choir kick in in the final chorus, a wondrous wave of sound emerges, transforming a seemingly standard track into a wonderful explosion of sound and musicality. Furthermore to this, the Darkchild-produced Shake You Up is pure, unadulterated pop fun. It’s the most fun we’ve heard Leona sound since her X Factor debut back in 2006. Finally, I To You combines the sound of a classic James Bond theme song and the left-field of production of artists such as Jessie Ware to create a wonderfully vibrant track.

Lewis also has far more artistic control over this record than ever before. Her writing credits feature on eight of the thirteen tracks on the record; a remarkable feat, considering the high quality of the said tracks. Lewis’ experimentation with various different sounds throughout the record should not go unnoticed either. Her forays into Dubstep (Glassheart), 140 BPM plus dance balladry (Come Alive) and 80′s bubblegum pop (Shake You Up) are successful. For critics who often complained that Leona was notorious for sticking within her comfort zone, you can’t say fairer than that to the eclectic mix of sounds on display on Glassheart. Best of all is Favourite Scar; a track that combines Leona’s world-class knack for balladry with a genius hook and some wonderful production courtesy of Ryan Tedder.

Very rarely does Leona slip up, and this is without a doubt the strongest collection of tracks Lewis has recorded to date. Only on the dreary and dull When It Hurts is there a point in which you feel slightly undersold. Indeed, Glassheart is a record full to the brim of potential singles, and despite its many delays, this record sounds like a record suited for 2012. Lewis doesn’t abandon her credentials as a ballad singer, and the balance between making artistic progression whilst maintaining the strengths in Leona’s talent has been struck near perfectly. Leona has crafted a sound to build upon. No longer is she simply a ballad singer; with Glassheart she is a fully fledged pop star. This is not to say that the record is faultless. Indeed, Lewis still has an over reliance on ballads; her brief forays on this record into more fast-paced musical styles prove that she is not unable to pull it off with ease. Furthermore to this, although this is a strong record, it’s been released in a year where the market of female musicians has been unusually strong. What with the phenomenal debuts from artists such as Jessie Ware, Lianne La Havas and Delilah, there is a risk that this collection of tracks may not be remarkable enough to grab the majority of the public’s attention.

However, what is undeniable is the sheer talent of Leona Lewis. Her vocal ability still confirms her to be one of Britain’s most phenomenal musical talents, and her passion for music shines through in every track. What is most important, above all else, is that this record marks a new chapter in the career of Leona Lewis. Every iconic female musician has their renaissance period after a couple of records; Janet Jackson; Kylie Minogue; Mariah – they all underwent massive reinventions in sound and image after an initial bout of success. Glassheart represents the musical awakening and rebirth of Leona Lewis; whether it turns out to be a commercial success remains to be seen. However, this record lays in place firm foundations for Lewis to go even further into the unknown when preparing for her next record, and that, above everything, is an extremely exciting prospect.

A commendable effort.

Within a few days of its official release in the UK, Leona’s third studio album Glassheart is already recieving mixed reviews from the press. Here’s what Caroline Sullivan, from The Guardian has to say about the album:

“Can you turn the music up a little bit, please?” Leona Lewis coyly asks producer Darkchild at the start of track seven, Shake You Up. You find yourself agreeing, because for once Lewis has made an album that’s worth turning up – in parts, at least. It’s never been in her remit to be interesting – she’s a safe pair of hands at representing Britain abroad, but never produces anything unexpected. But something has changed in the three years since her second album, and she’s found the junction where her powerhouse voice blends with elements of dubstep and house. Granted, much of the record is still given over to quaking ballads like Fingerprint – an area where Adele now has the advantage – but several tracks demand attention. Come Alive is electronic mood music, grumbling away to itself as her disconsolate vocal entwines with dubstep throbs; the title track is mood-elevating house with an abrasive grime heart, and Trouble winningly combines hip-hop and an emotional relationship-breakup lyric. Surprisingly fine.

The brand new Leona album is released on October 15th and I can confirm that the album is one of her best.

Glassheart, which was originally scheduled for release in 2011, features contributions from Emeli Sande, Naughty Boy, Darkchild and Ryan Tedder, who’s been working with Leona since Bleeding Love in 2007.

And as the saying goes, all good things come to those that wait, as Glassheart’s fusion of pop, dance, rnb and soul has delivered Leona one of her strongest collections of material.

Leona told me “It’s definitely a progression and I’ve taken a lot of different influences, put them in and made them my own. I’m just really proud of it; it has taken a while, it’s taken two years but it was all for a reason. Obviously there was a bit pressure to deliver it but I knew that it needed to have this time..”

Leona also revealed that co-writing with Emeli Sande was ‘an amazing experience.’ Emeli co-wrote new single Trouble as well as new tracks Sugar and I To You, which is one of the stand-out tracks on the album. “I’ve found a good song-writing partner in Emeli Sande. She just knows and she’s got great instincts. I To You is one of the songs we co-wrote and I just love that song..”

Leona also chatted to me about working with Naughty Boy (“he has piranhas in his studio”), Darkchild ( I’ve always wanted to work with him”) and described Ryan Tedder “as a great friend. he came up with the word Glassheart..when we talking about relationships and things I’d gone through. He was saying that you have to protect yourself and you have to keep yourself safe, as your heart is very sacred and fragile but it’s still strong, as I’ve been coming from a place of being more protective about myself and relationships..”

2012 was also the year Leona returned to the UK X Factor, when she appeared as guest judge at the London auditions. She told me “I was so nervous about appearing as judge that I almost pulled out the night before..I even rang my manager asking if I could pull out as I felt so nervous! Of course she said no and once I was there, I really enjoyed it and it felt very natural. I got on with every one on the panel especially Gary, so yeah I’m glad I did it”

Leona returns to the show next weekend to perform new single “Trouble” on the first Sunday results show. “I’m so nervous but excited; I can’t wait. I do get a bit nervous yeah, I try not but I just do..especially going back to the X Factor as it’s ingrained and something so big and scary.” But she will miss not seeing Simon Cowell sitting on the panel? ” I like it when Simon’s there as he so supportive and actually it’s kind of a comfort, I know that sounds weird..he’s always got good things to say. But he’s really into my new album and really proud of it..he always supported me taking more time to record so yeah, I’ve got a lot of respect for him.”

We also talked about why you’ll read too many stories about her private life, her plans for a Spring tour and her recent switch to Veganism. Oh and have a listen to her talking about her passion for 70s horror films and all things scary! Oh yes!

Loved catching up with Leona, as ever, and rate Glassheart as one of the best albums I’ve heard this year.
