Estelle is concerned that her new single 'Thank You' will render her a blubbing wreck on stage as it reminds her of a break-up.
Speaking to Evening Standard magazine (quoted here) about the Akon-written tune, she said: "I've never cried on stage before. But every time I sing 'Thank You' the tears are ready to come. I'm not going to do that ugly face in public. OK, I am…"
Estelle discovered the song just before the split with her boyfriend of three years. When she heard it, she says, "my heart started pounding. My chest hurt. And guess what? Two weeks later I broke up with this guy. And now I can't sing it without crying. It's my life. It's a mess".
Estelle's new album 'All Of Me' is due on February 28.
