Leona Lewis’ incredible story continues with the release of her brand new single “Collide”. With “Collide,” the record-breaking international superstar from Hackney, London that the New York Times described “titanium-caliber voice,” showcases a new sound that is set to dominate dance floors this summer. “Collide,” a dance-pop anthem, is a departure from Leona’s signature sound and is her first new recorded material to be heard since the release of her 2009 album Echo. “Collide” is a massive track made for the dance floor with a euphoric catchy chorus. Built around a staccato piano riff “Collide” builds and builds into an immense anthem. Leona’s powerhouse vocals are instantly recognizable and are a solid reminder as to why she has enjoyed such incredible global success to date. “Collide” will be available for sale on September 6, 2011 in the US at all digital providers (iTunes, Amazon, etc).
