Some interesting quotes from Leona, she hints at a battle behind the scenes for creative control.

She should have said that from the beginning as an explanation for the delay! But everything is fine now. No harm done. Let's wait for the single!

"And now I have full creative control from the promotion, photo shoots and the video it's taken a while to get but I've got it now."
I love you Leona

She's finally put her foot down, and when I mean 'down' I mean she shoved it right down Cowells throat to shut him up I love how she mentioned she's an 'artist' and not just a 'singer' I like her fiesty side

Let's hope that with her taking more control, we can expect a lot of great things to come

Its been a great positive week for us fans, from the guest judging X Factor to the excitement of the new music and Leona opening the Hackney Weekend.

It was a great little interview with Fearne too. Leona's so much more confident now in interviews

The best thing about the interview is when she said she wasn't nervous anymore because she found out something about her set ??????? I wonder I wonder

"I knew I'd made it in the US when I was in the car on my way to an interview and my song was on the radio and the driver was singing along to it but he didn't know it was me."

Imagine how cool that would be !!!

According to twitter,leona is saying that the album is coming out at the end of the summer.The end of the summer is september,so ill assume the release date is sept 21? I hope she premiers the new single at the hackney event.No confirmation on single yet but the hint about her set at the hackney event is a clue about possible single premier but again I feel better once its confirmed.

Apparently she'd said today it'll be August at the latest, not sure how concrete that is. Either way, the single premiere can't be far off!

Very excited about what she has in store for the Hackney Weekend. They will definitely be making a big effort for her as she's opening the whole event. It's such a massive compliment that they asked her to do that and clearly shows how much confidence they have in her to start the whole weekend off with a bang.

Bring on the album!

If the album comes out in aug it makes sense for the single to premier late june at the hackney event!

Apparently it was at the Q&A, my friend had text me about it - but as I say, I haven't seen anywhere else, but end of summer I always think of late August anyway.

I think Leona will release her single before the Hackney event cause it's going to be EPIC, and people will all flock to Hackney to see a genius at work. She will then perform single again live and be top of the world again.AMEN.

The fact she is opening the hackney gig and she has got something amazing planned is just how it should be..she HAS to get peoples attention right from the beginning..if she did a performance like on her Labyrinth tour

I don't think it bothers him or anyone, he was just curious
If you go to the advanced post you'll see a "Title field", your name is probably written in that field.

To all those asking for a source for the 'album being out by the end of the summer,' the article from this post a page back has that quote in it. So I think it's safe to say we'll get the album by the end of August or beginning of September. Well, at least you UK people will

Since we can say with more confidence now that we'll have the album by the end of the summer, I think it's also confirmed now that the surprise in her set list for Hackney will be performing her new single. I think after her performance, she'll probably send it to radio, do some interviews, release the music video, release the single maybe in July, and then that will lead to the album release by the end of summer.

This was the news we've been waiting for I'm also really proud of her for finally standing up for herself and finally getting complete creative control!

When an artist releases an album dont they release a single a month and a half to two months before the album release?

Leona has usually released a single, then the album a week later.

It's usually the case though that the single itself is out for radio/tv/etc 1-2 months before the single is available for public purchases. (For example Collide was premiered in July 2011, but wasn't available to purchase until the September)
