Leona Covers ‘The Guardian’; Lifts Lid On LP

Published: Friday 2nd Sep 2011 by Sam

It seems Leona Lewis is conjuring up a striking image to compliment her striking voice.

The British belle is gearing up to release her third studio album ‘Glassheart’ and appears on the cover of ‘The Guardian’, as the promotional wheels for the project begin a-turning.

Check out what she had to say about tracks from the LP below…

Via The Guardian / Theo:

There’s the orchestral soundscape of ‘Sugar’, the eastern-tinged 80s electro of ‘Fire Flies’. Most intriguingly, there’s the stunning trip-hop of Trouble (“It’s very London,”), as if Kate Bush in 1979 was transported through a pop Tardis to front Massive Attack in 1991. Her spectral vocal imploring “I’m a whole lot of trouble.”

“It’s definitely true,” she smiles. “I am a whole lot of trouble.”

While elsewhere, the article reads:

Leona, as if beamed through a Star Trek transporter, is now barely visible behind a charcoal vocal booth curtain, singing a song no one has mentioned, a soaring reverie over mournful piano and strings, called Blank Page. “I am a blaaaaaank page,” she serenades, a soul-bending power lilt somewhere between Sinéad O’Connor and Barbra Streisand, “waiting for life to start.” It might just do for Leona what Someone Like You has done for Adele.

Promising.

    Um…. What’s up with the tattoo tacky stars. First it was on her album cover now on the “Guardian” magazine. Please stop putting on those stars you’re too beautiful to be pasting these stickers on your face.

    I need Trouble and Blank Page now! I really think this album’s going to be amazing. It appears that Collide is basically being used to get her back on top and we’re getting the real new sound after.

    Cant believe how much plastic surgery shes had she looked so much better before, you can tell shes had a nose job and uses botox and fillers for her face, seems like being a LA LA Land has chnaged her

    Her eyes!!

    She looks incredible as usual. I think the problem is, she’s been perceived as vulnerable for so long that losers from the public feel the need to just shower her with abuse. In actual fact she probably shows up the majority of female artists out there. Her voice isn’t compared to three of the greatest singers of all time for no reason. Maybe if she shown some ass the planks of society would notice her. Who cares about a nose job, its her nose. End of

    cute………

    She is lookingold and unnatural I think she has had a nose job.

    I LOVE it when pop or urban artists use trip hop or soul influences.However, I cannot see her mixing trip hop with her music as well as Aaliyah did and I definetely cannot see her slaying soul like Christina, because Leona hardly evokes any emotion while singing.I am very excited about the fact that she’s experimenting but I’m afraid that her label is trying to do something that is much beyond her capabilities (case, point, example her new image that she doesn’t seem able to “sell” properly).

  12. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) September 3, 2011

    HOWEVER, I never trust British journalists when they are trying to describe music.These people described the breakdown on ‘Freedom’ as dubstep (WHAT????), so I’m not going to take the terms “trip hop” and “soul” very seriously.Btw, she would be stunning if they stopped drawing the hearts under her eyes.The album is called “GLASS Heart”, what are these 2 tiny black hearts doing there?

    Sounds good!

  14. nice_gurl September 3, 2011

    I don’t like those star stickers she keeps putting on her face. The sound is promising. Collide is an ok song.

  15. APOCALYPSE OF QUEEN LACEFRONT September 3, 2011

    LEONA. SO PROMISING AT HE START.

    WITH YOUR BLEEDING LOVE…NOW YOUR JUST MAKING OUR EARS BLEED AND OUR SOULS BLEED WITH BOREDOM.

  16. YOOSONDALOOSE September 3, 2011

    @NICE_GURL I agree with the stars right? What is it about? But I do love ‘Collide’.

  17. Kent September 3, 2011

    how awful and rude are some people on here calling leona ugly

    I mean that’s just out of order

    I think she looks stunning and s***

    she looks s*** without looking slutty i.e lady gaga rihanna

    I’m really looking forward to glassheart I think it’s going to be amazing
    although if there are better songs on the album why did they put out collide as a lead single which in my opinion for underwhelming

    Leona looks like a horse and a man! People only think she’s pretty because she’s light skinned with green eyes. And are those blue contacts?

  21. Liz September 3, 2011

    anyone saying Leona looks ugly is actually talking out of their a-hole
