Ever since Leona Lewis‘ sophomore set ‘Echo’ failed to set the charts blaze back in 09, the songbird’s career has worn a ‘fragile’ sticker.
From poorly charting singles, to a dwindling presence in the States, to the incessant delay in delivering her “comeback” LP ‘Glassheart’, it’s been a rocky few years for the vocalist.
And yet it seems the turbulence is far from over; for it has today been revealed that ”Heart’ won’t be hitting stores for another 11 months.
Full story below…
Originally set for a Summer 2011 release, the Syco set was bumped to March of this year. However, the ever-reliable Amazon today re-listed the LP with a November 26th 2012 store date.
While this is the messiest of messes (second only to Nicole Scherzinger), it’s still salvageable. I mean, for all the garbage handling of the project, it’s clear she remains a top priority.
Legendary Sony exec Clive Davis has to adopted the LP as his pet project, and, as reported, has enlisted the likes of will.i.am and Polow Da Don to re-mould the album.
What’s more, beyond the heightened generosity of shoppers during the Holiday season, November will see both the UK and US versions of the X Factor on – granting Lewis two major stages to showcase material on. Material which’ll need to be all sorts of ‘the business’ if she’s to mop up the mess on aisle #9.
