Looks like there will be some kind of feature involving Leona on BBC in the week leading up to the Hackney concert.

Leona Lewis visited Chats with BBC for a trip down memory lane. Exciting & it'll be on BBC w/c 18 June! She used to come to dance classes.

(She also visited her primary school recently with a film crew.)

I love seeing Glassheart #5 on the preorder chart for HMV already! I don't know about Amazon or Play though.

It certainly should help the first week sales a bit. I don't think any album has ever been available to pre-order for what will presumably over a year before the release.

I think Glassheart will be the album with most pre-orders of all time.

10.000 pre-orders each year * 40 = 400.000
Release: in 2052

Was there ever an album who had more than 400.000 pre-orders?

This is Syco's plan all along. Let the pre-orders reach half a million and then release.

OMG Leona looks gorgeous, both picts

EDIT:

If BlankPage is not for Leona I hope that Sia will give that song to Christina
...she's also releasing new album later this year...
I need Christina to belt, shout, screech and oversing that song on some big awards show
NO Christina's voice is demaged. I love Sia's vocals in this song. She should release it lol
Xtina just screams and oversings songs. She would ruin it.

Just watching Britains Got More Talent and in the adbreak an advertisement about a new album called Voices appeared, and Run was the first featured song that played! Made me happy!

Yes, if Leona doesn't get it then no one gets it.. except for Sia cause she made a masterpiece

I do love Sia's vocals on that snippet and would love to hear the song in full sung by her.

Blank Page is so amazing.

Haven't heard such a special ballad in a long time.

It's a shame that Leona doesn't get to sing it.

Blank Page is sooo out of this world, just incredible.

This is the ballad Leona would have needed.

I don't want to hear a rock-indie ballad or hurt-run-ballad.
And I don't want to hear a rnb ballad.

does anyone think Sia was just being sarcastic when she said "no.. it's for another artist".?? haha i know this is just wishful thinking... but there was a lot of talk about "Blank Page" and Sia did say she's worked with Leona... I hope she was being sarcastic!!! She probably wasn't though! haha lol I just really liked the "Blank Page" snippet... and I do have a strange feeling it will still be on the album!

One person on another forum said he heard both recorded versions (Sia's and Leona's ) in late 2011....he liked Sia's version more

From the clip it does sound like Sia's version will be great... i hope that whoever gets to record / release it is good... it sounds like it could be a great song... obviously its a shame that it may not be a hit for leona, but letting a great song go could mean that they have even bigger things planned (the positive part of me thinks so anyway!)

I remember someone said it but it was about Mountains not Blank Page, I think.

Really disappointed about Blank Page: mainly because that Guardian article had got me so excited in anticipation! I would be happy if Sia released it but not if it was given to another artist. That would be wrong! Then Sia and Emile would have both taken back tracks 'it seems' they intended at one point for Leona. In their rights, but an unlucky situation - if you lost two of the big tracks for the album you would have to delay it wouldn't you! Maybe at the end of the day Leona needs to work on her songwriting so she can have more control over the outcome of her recordings....

I don't know if I'm a bit late on this, but last night I saw an advert for an album that's being released called VOICES - The greatest voices of all time, and Leona's on it, with a snippet of Run being played at the start of the ad, thought that was quite nice

Oh wow I didn't even realise it was number 5 on the pre order chart.

I mean Cheryl and Tulisa's are like 20 and 21 and they are out wayy before Glassheart!

I take it this is a good sign? I'm unaware with how the Pre Order chart works - does add to first week sales?

I'm not sure how it works either but I'm guessing it'll help the first week of sales massively.
Being open for Preorder for over a year will definitely help the sales!
