So, Jessie's new album alive will be out in less than a month. The 20th in Australia and the UK. Not sure about anywhere else. At the moment she is number 4 on UK iTunes for preorders.

What are you expecting from the album? What are you hoping to see? Etc.

Cover: http://i2.cdnds.net/13/33/618x619/je...over-music.jpg

Track list: http://cdn.rap-up.com/blog/wp-conten...acklisting.jpg

The title track was produced by Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins. She has worked with Ammo and Dr Luke. Some of the writers and producers she worked with last year, but haven't been confirmed on the album as of yet are, Sia, Cee-Lo, Bonnie McKee, Her executive producer Claude Kelly, Chuck Harmony, Mark "Exit" Goodchild, and I think that might be it, but I could be missing some.

I'm really looking forward to it. Not fussed on the artwork but I've high hopes for the album.

Also, interesting there's a song called Gold, it's obvious the album was meant to be called Gold and then because everyone guessed it Jessie called it Alive instead.

IMO, Alive is a better title.

I don't think it was ever Gold, though. Nobody guessed it, she had it deliberately put in two magazines. I think she was going to red herring approach in order to not have it leaked. Claude Kelly denied the title was gold, but instead just a song before Jessie did. She's had trouble with things getting leaked in the past she gets really pest about it so was being cautious this time it seems. She said a song called Strip was on the album and it isn't, also that the title was on her last album which neither Gold or Alive are. Unfortunately for her, she wasnt banking on posters of the album being put out before she was ready to release the name so once again, twitter spoiled it.

I'm so glad the tracklisting is different to the one that leaked... WAY too many features.

Liking a few of the track names and I like the cover and title. I'd say I'm intrigued to hear the album.

Produced by Dr. Luke. I'm interested to hear it, Harder We Fall is produced by him as well. I can't believe she left off the Calvin Harris song though.

Nope. That song is for DJ Cassidy's debut album. It is the first single and will be out soon. She's shooting the video this week. Earth, Wind, and Fire are playing the instrumental for it.

It was supposed to be just Jessie on it, but Robin heard the demo and asked her of he could record on it with her.

The only snippets that I like are 'Unite' and 'Hero' and they're both deluxe bonus tracks!! On the standard edition, I only kind of like 'Daydreaming' and 'I Miss Her' (beautifully written, yet totally ruined by her over the top vocals), but that's it. Horrible album. Worse than her debut and I didn't even think that was possible.

It's My Party, Thunder, Wild and Excuse My Rude are the only real good ones on the album. Possibly Gold as well when we hear it in full.

This sounds really good I like a couple of the sounds already listening to the previews sounds much better than her Debut Album that's for sure !

I wish there were more ballads on the album because I think she sings them well, but knowing Jessie, half the songs will be sung as ballads at one point or another. As for the snippets, I like them a lot. Some of them are really over produced, though, which was the biggest problem I thought her last album had. I do like that on a lot of the songs, her vocals are lifted because that is her strong point. Not sure about favorites, yet, but I Miss Her is beautiful. If anyone was wondering, it's about a family member, I think her grandma, who has some form of dementia.

Album version of Square One. I love both this and the live version.

So excited for this album. Square One is probably my favourite song of hers, ever and when she performs in live, omg.

Really looking forward to it. I've heard the album sampler and it sounds like a really good album

In saying that, that has got to be one of the WORST album covers ever made! It looks like a police mugshot!!!!

It did and I love it at the moment. Breathe is the best song imo and one of if not her best to date. She writes some of the best pop choruses out. Normally I would feel bad about listening to it early, but since it isn't being released in the US right now, I don't feel so guilty.

The singles are nothing like the album at all.
