In what will sure to serve as a shocking blow to many of Leona Lewis‘ loyal fans, the release date of her greatly anticipated ‘Glassheart‘ album has been pushed back to 2012.
The news comes not long after the release of the project’s first single ‘Collide‘ ,which charted at #18 on this week’s Official UK Top 40.

Taking to her Facebook page, the X Factor winner explained:
Just wanted to update everyone on the album! I’m feeling so inspired right now and have decided to continue recording! I have a collection of songs that I’m so in love with and I no there’s more to be born so it means the album will come early next year.
Whilst this will disappoint many of her supporters, here’s to hoping the extra time in the studio will give Team Leona a clearer idea on how to turn this project into the success she desperately needs it to be.
For putting aside her immense and oft celebrated talent, it is difficult to see how Ms. Lewis will be able to regenerate the hype she enjoyed during the lead up to her first album.
Especially now that Adele Adkins is the only Brit export the rest of the world seems to be interested in.
