Leona Lewis to show 'new side'
Leona Lewis says her next album will show a whole new side of her.
The singer, 27, has hooked up with Fraser T Smith, who worked with Adele, as executive producer on the forthcoming record, Glassheart.
She told the Daily Star: "This album is going to be more open because I've got to work with people I've bonded with... People will hear a whole new side of me."
Leona, who is performing at Radio 1's Hackney Weekend, added: "Fraser is a great songwriter, great musician and such a cool person to be around and vibe with."
She added: "We did the EP together last year and I wanted to keep working with him, so we decided to do the whole album. I'm doing it old school and feeling it out, and making sure I'm getting the best songs."
The X Factor winner recently made a return to the show as a guest judge.
