Global Superstar Leona Lewis has been trying to explain why she took so long making 'Glassheart'.
"I had a provisional deadline but I was still in the midst of recording and didn’t feel like I’d got the crux of the album," she explained to the Birmingham Mail.
"So I kept going and kept writing and then I got Fraser T Smith involved, who went on to executive produce all the songs. So it took a bit longer but it was for good reasons."
Asked if the album was a massive leap forward in sonic exploration, she said: "Musically, it hasn’t gone in to a completely new direction. It’s still a classic 'me' album with some big Whitney-esque and Mariah-esque songs, that I love."
"I’d say it’s the best album I’ve made yet. It’s very emotional, very consistent – a modern classic."
'A modern classic'.
'Glassheart' is finally released on October 12, which is pretty soon actually.
