20120816-133547.jpgPush back, after push back of Leona Lewis’ third album Glassheart, it was finally announced recently that it would be released on October 15th this year – a year after originally planned.

And now it has been confirmed that the first single, Trouble (disregarding Collide), will be released on October 7th. Sure enough, Collide will probably be considered a “buzz single”, albeit one of the more successful “buzz singles”.

Trouble is co-penned by Emeli Sande and produced by Fraser T. Smith and Naughty Boy. It will also feature US rapper Childish Gambino.

Hopefully this is the last of the messing around with this album campaign and Glassheart will actually be released on October 15th.

Trouble will receive its first radio play next Tuesday, August 21st.

Alphabeat’s second single Love Sea, from their yet to be untitled third studio album, is set to be released on iTunes on August 13th. The band uploaded a small preview of Love Sea to their website earlier today.

You can listen to the clip of Love Sea below:

From the clip it sounds like it’s going to be a really catchy song. It reminds me of Whitney Houston’s How Will I Know melodically. Both Love Sea, and first single Vacation, have me very excited for their new album.
