Good evening guys! As you know, Leona is always ready to give a bit of her time to help people and animals! Besides, she’s just been confirmed as one of the act of the next BBC Children in Need concert, that will take place October 28th at the London’s Savoy Theatre and will be host by Sir Terry Wogan. More informations below! As for us the date has just been added to Leona’s agenda.

Weekend Wogan returns to London’s Savoy Theatre on 28th October 2012, as Sir Terry Wogan hosts a live concert for BBC Children In Need.

He’ll be joined by special guests including Dionne Warwick, Leona Lewis, The Overtones, Matt Cardle, James Torme plus Melanie C and Emma Bunton of the Spice Girls, all performing live on stage.

For a second year running the Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Orchestra will also feature as the very special house band.

Following his radio show Terry will be hosting a very special Celebrity lunch and auction at the Savoy Hotel, also in aid of Children In Need.

Last year’s concert at the illustrious West End venue contributed to the £2,032,642 raised by Radio 2 listeners for Children In Need.

Hey Guys! Here we go … Begining the news today with a very good one! Indeed after two weeks online, Leona Lewis’ video for her new single “Trouble”, has just hit the 1.000.000 views on the official youtube/vevo pages! So let’s hope the single will become a huge hit to see the video counter rise again…. But in waiting, well done Leona!

It’s just over two weeks until Leona Lewis‘s long-awaited third studio album Glassheart hits stores on October 15.

After being delayed by a year, we were just a little bit intrigued to hear what X Factor‘s prized diva had been working on and, to our relief, we weren’t disappointed.

‘Trouble’
Like ‘Bleeding Love’ and ‘Happy’ before it, this is Leona’s big, emotive power-ballad of an opener. It’s dark, heart-tugging and pure class.

‘Un Love Me’
Light Snow Patrol-esque guitar plugs and a thudding bass beat serve as the backdrop for Leona’s intricate falsetto, which is allowed to take centre stage. The production is subtle, but the result is epic.

‘Lovebird’
Weirdly, the intro has a ‘Bleeding Love’ organ, before some ‘Better In Time’ piano comes in. However, ‘Lovebird’ develops into a mid-tempo ballad that centres around the catchy hook: “Your lovebird’s flying away/ And my heart’s been stuck in a cage/ I’ve gotta sing my/ Song so pretty, dum-dum dee-dee.”

‘Come Alive’
This is Leona’s electronic serenade. Her voice towers above a crash of dubstep wobbles with break beats, before it pulsates into a techno finale. If this were a visual spectacle, it would be green lasers in a gothic castle.

‘Fireflies’
It begins with Leona singing over a rotating piano riff, before an orchestra of strings flourish while she chants: “Fire! It’s only fire!” It results in a hippie, gospel number that sits comfortably with the star’s previous offerings.

‘I To You’
“You are love, you are sin/ You’ll alway be everything, everything/ To me,” Leona declares while backed by a band of swooping strings. On the first couple of listens this feels like an album track, but a very good one nonetheless.

‘Shake You Up’
The cutest voice-over clip of Leona asking “Can you turn the music up a little bit please?” plays before Darkchild’s ’80s pop gold ensues. It’s packed with groovy synths, an addictive hook and is the kind of mid-tempo hit we imagine a young Whitney would’ve recorded.

‘Stop The Clocks’
An electronic-lite love song about spending an infinite amount of time with her beau, the track is a nice head-nodding ditty that could easily slip onto previous album Echo.

‘Favourite Scar’
An ear-pleasing piano riff that slightly resembles church bells is joined by one of the most direct tones and clearest diction we’ve heard from Leona. What’s more, it’s not the kind of Ryan Tedder collaboration we’ve come to expect from LeLe; hip-hop beats and attitude give it an almost Rihanna quality.

‘When It Hurts’
A pleasant piano-led ballad with crashing beats and some light electric guitar riffs serve as a backdrop to Leona’s claims that “you love it when it hurts”.

‘Glassheart’
DJ Frank E has sprinkled the title track with pumping club beats and chart-friendly dubstep breakdowns. It acts as a welcome change in pace during the latter stages of the record and definitely grows on repeated listens.

‘Fingerprint’
Delicate piano twinkles underlie Leona’s rich lower register, before she is let loose with soaring falsetto over added crashing echoes and strings before the song’s end. The message centres around a loved one being irreplaceable (“No match, no match, no match for your fingerprint/ No substitute, no other you”).

Verdict:
After only a couple of spins, Glassheart already feels like Leona’s strongest collection to date. There are plenty of singles to be lifted here, so our only hope is that Syco doesn’t deliberate this time around when it comes to future cuts.

Hey buns! exciting news!  Another brand new song from “Glassheart” has debuted (well kinda lol) and it had its first play in one of the most amazing shows out there right now, The X Factor (US). Tonight during  the audition of a girl called Sophie Tweed Simmons they played a few minutes of a song by Leona we’ve never listen before and by hearing the lyrics and a massive Choir on the background we can assume that its “Fireflies”. The song sounds so epic with the choir on it and some massive note that Leona hits at the end WOW just WOW!! This days has been amazing for us! we are so close to getting this new album… that is insane!! Watch the audition on the video bellow:

“Fireflies” starts playing at 6:00

Thanks to Karla for letting us know!

Bleeding Love was a global hit, rejigged cover versions worked as follow up hits and her success was obvious.

Where Leona has struggled is working out where to go next and how to develop and this is plain to see.

We’ve had to wait for Glassheart for an entire year since that terrible/confusing Avicii collaboration track Collide was released.

Her label SYCO decided there was more work to do and fortunately for one and all Trouble was found – thanks to Emeli Sande’s writing talents.

Trouble is easily the best thing on Glassheart, btw.

Leona also began working with one of the pop world’s major success stories…step forward the record producing genius of our time, Fraser T Smith.

He’s responsible for highlights on Adele’s phenomenally successful hit album 21 and wrote and produced Nelly Furtado and James Morrison’s duet Broken Strings.

He’s a safe bet to work with Leona and the results are good.

I’m left wondering after listening to Glassheart whether Leona’s found her way as an artist or whether she’s worked with the right people in the right situation to ensure it’s deemed a hit.

There’s no doubting the music is good and Glassheart does appear to be her most personal album to date.

Trouble has obviously become an ode to her relationship with ex-boyfriend Lou Al Chamaa (even the actor in the recently released video looks like him).

The album’s dark, moody, emotive, mysterious and full of anger.

For somebody so peaceful and softly spoken in real life you wonder what she’s got to be so angry about behind closed doors.

Un Love Me you can hear is obviously going to be a single and will work wonders on the radio, Glassheart tries to keep Leona cool and trendy with it’s club sounding edge and just about achieves it and Fingerprint is a slow controlled ballad that reminds us just how fabulous her voice can be.

Shake You Up is a modern take on an eighties pop song and leaves you wondering if it actually works or if it’s too old school.

Stop The Clocks didn’t set my world alight but Favourite Scar kept my attention as Leona has serious attitude throughout.

She sings: “You shot me through my heart. Pain never felt so good. Boy, you’re my favourite scar.”

Glassheart reminds you what an extraordinary talent Leona is – especially to have been discovered on a TV talent show – but this isn’t an album that will translate to a universal audience in an Adele stylee.

But should we even be making a comparison with Adele? Probably not.

The fans will always be there for her and there’s no doubting she’s a great singer.

It just still feels like this is an artist finding her feet and working out how to settle into a career with longevity.

And Glassheart is the perfect stepping stone…

The X Factor winner said she wanted to sound like veteran squawker Kate Bush on her new album.

Leona added: “Kate Bush was definitely an inspiration for some of the songs that are on this record in terms of the register she uses.

“I was classically trained from a young age – I actually wanted to be an opera singer.”
