New Song: Alexandra Burke – ‘Fear of Flying’

alex 4 copy New Song: Alexandra Burke   Fear of Flying

‘Fear of Flying’, a track said to be a left-over from Alexandra Burke‘s debut ‘Overcome’, surfaced over the weekend. Produced by hitmakers Stargate, the stirring piano-led ballad features (as usual) stunning vocals from 20 year old Burke. That said, the song lacks that certain ‘something’ which would have made it that more compelling and ultimately worthy of a place on the album’s final tracklist (which truth be told, wasn’t that great anyway). Still, not a bad cut at all.

Tidbit: Word has it Alex is re-working ‘Overcome’ for it’s US release in 2010. While it’ll likely feature more US-friendly material, Burke has gone on course to stress the essense of doing her first two videos (‘Bad Boys’ and ‘Broken Heels’) in America was so that they’d be ready-prepped to roll out for the US market. An interesting tactic, considering I’m not so sure both ‘Bad Boys’ and ‘Broken Heels’ will work in America. Then again, stranger things have happened…

    No way those two singles/videos will do well in America. She will have to rework her whole album, her sound is too pop where as she looks more urban.

    LOL. I see she put her spin on Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence piano refrain. It’s really a pretty song. I heard it first while some Japanese figure skater was performing at the Olympics. I seem to remember it being on Janet Jackson’s celebrity itunes playlist. Japanese singer Utada also samples the same refrain on her last english language album. I’m pretty sure her version is called Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence too.

    I’m American, and quite honestly – this is the best thing I’ve heard from Alexandra. Please Alexandra, stay away from the US with that Broken Heels nonsense – it’s dreadful.

    This song is better then anything on her LP. “Broken Heels” is a joke, and the rest of the album is corny. She has so much more potential =/

    That picture of her is not flattering at all! She looks like a man in drag.

    That picture was taken for a high fashion magazine and they went for a goth look for Alex-lighten up.I am sure Badboys will do very well as it is a great pop dance tune.
