Leona Lewis' new LP is her 'most personal' yet

Leona Lewis has revealed her upcoming new album is her ''most personal'' yet and more experimental than her previous releases.

Leona Lewis says her new album has been inspired by the upheaval in her personal life.

The 26-year-old singer endured an acrimonious separation from her childhood sweetheart Lou Al-Chamaa in June 2010 and she admits the split has had an effect on her forthcoming LP.

Leona - whose new single 'Collide' is to be released in September - said: "The past two years, I have had a lot of situations thrown at me. It has made me realise that I am much stronger than I thought I was.

"I have been through a lot of changes and making this new album has been really therapeutic. This really is my most personal album to date."

The 'Happy' hitmaker - who is now dating German backing dancer Dennis Jauch - has told her fans to expect a different vibe to her album, and she insists first single 'Collide' sets a benchmark for what the rest of the record will be like.

She explained: "I'm excited for people to see a different side to my music. 'Collide' is a summer song that has a really good vibe. I love the energy and happiness I feel when I listen to it . On my previous album 'Echo', and also on tour, I was experimenting with more high-energy sounds, so it's a progression from that."
