My idealistic Glassheart saving plan:

April - Glassheart tour
May - Glassheart tour then studio session for US release of the album and start The Body Shop Promo Campaign in the US with Lovebird as the commercial song/ promotional single (I can see her going on the Ellen Show to talk about how she loves animals and everything about her passion)
June - Release Glassheart as the US lead single with an epic video
July - Release Glassheart in the UK if the response is good, release Glassheart the album in the US by the end of the month
August - Release Sugar or Come Alive as the 2nd US single
September - More promotion for the 2nd single and US leg of the Glassheart tour
October - More touring in the US and release a US bonus track (maybe Burn) in UK with the European re-release of Glassheart
November - Release the new song (Burn!) as the 3rd US single
December - NO PROMOTION IN WINTER - MAMA BUNNY NEEDS THAT WINTER BREAK - TOO EASY TO GET ILL
January - *same as above*
February - Release Shake You Up as the 4th US single with some award show performances (in the UK too if she has a chance to perform at the Brits)

AND WE'LL SAVE ANOTHER GLASSHEART

I know this probably will never happen but let's make this the bunnies' birthday wish...

She said on that signing she has new stuff. It doesn't necessarily mean new album It could be just a new single by the end of the year, it could be re-release of GH, it could be best of. I suppose they're gonna launch some single and if it smashes they're gonna go for the album release at the end of the year and if it doesn't it's gonna be delayed for 2014.

I don't think they'll delay the release. The only reason why Glassheart was delayed was Leona. She said it herself that if it was up to her label she'd release albums every year.

Honestly, Glassheart is absolutely brilliant but I'm feeling that the electro dancepop trend is starting to fade too. It's been 2 years since Britney started it with Hold It Against Me. I doubt she will release a new album this year. Leona's clocks run so slowly (we know she stops them some nights ) that I don't think she will produce a new album so efficiently.

Well, an insider told to I don't know who that she left Modest and that's she releasing a new album end this year.

I think everyone needs to accept Glassheart is as good as dead now and has been for a loooong time. I don't see any re-releases on the horizon either since they don't really sell like they did back in 07/08. They'll put out a new album at the end of the year. Just like they do with all their other acts.

There's been so many fake insider stories so far that I actually question this one as well. And we all know plans change so fast. I really doubt they're gonna rush the release no matter what.

If they don't pay attention to the quality of the songs she's just gonna be one of many artists out there who release lead single which spends one week in top10, score a week or two in top10 with the album and then just disappear until next record which follows the same pattern.

I'm not talking about a re release though because that will never happen imo.

And they paid attention to the quality of the songs for Glassheart and it also got couple of weeks in top 10 so there is no difference
Demo's are sent to her label since couple of week and the insider was the first one to reveal she left Modest though..+ she has new stuff like she said.

Glassheart would have been massive if they released it as a single.No excuse not to release it.

What do you mean? That's the type of artist she is at the moment haha. It's this they need to change, her lack of longevity these days is awful.

We all know the quality isn't the problem with Glassheart but hesitation and singles choices.

Never mind, we'll see what happens.

Releasing Glassheart now is like releasing a Vengaboys song in 2013

I need the first 2 singles from the next album to be A listed by Radio 2, these are the type of listeners she needs to secure next era! She lost them this era sadly.

Glassheart or Come alive would have been A listed if they were released.

It doesn't matter now. It's too late to release it and the song has become dated. If she was going to release it, she should have done it in 2012 when that sound was still hot. Rihanna has a similar song with Right Now yet she has opted not to release it yet as this sound is dying out....

I even get the feeling that Leona herself doesn't like the song, hence why she has only performed Glassheart 1.0 live, and why when anyone asks her if she's going to release it she just responds with "everyone says that".

I'd rather Leona did just move on from this album and focus on getting some strong, fresher material to put out later this year.

That's not a reason to release a song. Glassheart's sound is outdated.

Not by Radio 2 they wouldn't! Radio 1 maybe, but Radio 2 are bigger and if you ask me more important for someone like Leona, especially as far as the album sales go. We need R2 on our side!

You perfectly described what happened to Leona but Glassheart is full of great songs.
