Leona Lewis record label "scared" about new album 'Glassheart'

Leona Lewis has confessed that her record label Syco is "scared" about her new album.

The X Factor winner has been experimenting with different sounds on the upcoming record, including working with grime producer Naughty Boy.

Asked if her record label bosses understand her new album, she told The Guardian: "They're slightly scared!"

Lewis went on to reveal how she has resisted label pressure to release albums more frequently, predicting that she "would've had a gazillion albums by now" had she given in.

Speaking of her breakout hit song 'Bleeding Love', Lewis admitted that she chose it as a single, despite reluctance from her label: "Everyone said, 'It's weird, it won't work on the radio'."

However, since the song went to number one in 34 countries, Simon Cowell "really trusts my instincts" and allows her "any amount of time I want" to complete her records. "Simon and I mostly agree but there have been arguments definitely," she said.

Lewis's new album Glassheart will be released on November 28 in the UK, following the release of the record's lead single 'Collide' on September 4.
