Leona Lewis: ‘Hurt’ Ep – Stream!

Leona Lewis has just released her brand-new 3-track EP “Hurt” today in the UK and Ireland. In the result of her first single “Collide” failing to impact, her third studio album has been pushed back until next year (March 26). Though its such a shame “Collide” didn’t work, Leona seems to be headed in the right direction with the release of her new EP. The EP features three stunning covers of three great songs and should be enough to hold us over until new material is poured out next year. Leona is set to perform this weekend on X Factor UK and on US soon. Check out the EP below and be sure to comment on what you think, Enjoy!

  1. While I love the idea of a EP, I think she failed at it.

    Hurt – While I only know the Johnny Cash cover, I feel as if she didn’t do the song justice.

    Iris – She shit all over this song. While her version is alright, you can’t beat the original.

    Colorblind – I’ve never heard it, so I don’t know whether or not she did the original justice, so by saying that her cover is good (the best of the three, I think), I could only be saying that because I don’t have anything to judge it against.

  2. I’m a HUGE Leona fan and was really anticipating this EP. Having listened to it I feel a little let down with one track, yet at the same time not!

    Hurt – I think it’s clear that she did the Nine Inch Nails version not the Jonny Cash. I think it was done well; shows off her lower register and her haunting voice.

    Iris – I was SUPER excited about this as I love the Goo Goo Dolls’ version (who doesn’t!). I’m a little disappointed with how she did it but simply because it’s too different from the original. However, in hindsight, based on Hurt and Colorblind, it had to receive similar treatment or it would have sounded out of place.

    Colorblind – I think it’s a bit too slow however, again, it fits with the theme. At the end of the day it’s a charity EP – and the charity deals with abuse and suffering; this song shows that.

    Overall, whilst I kinda wish that Iris had been more like the original, I think the overall EP stays true to its intent and showcases Leona’s lower register well as well as her power.

  3. It’s a shame that it collide didn’t work out (She seemed to really like that stuff), I don’t think glass heart will work either. I think the people want xfactor leona (grand, adult, classics, etc.) and I don’t think it’s really who she is. But having never heard these songs before, I love the colorbind and hurt. I think she should release two full studio album that sounds like this and the dance stuff, even though it would mean she’s “selling out”. But I hope that she’s making music she likes.

  4. Iris was amazing! .. I loved that cover!

  5. Um absolutely horrible.. All of it! This is exactly why she failed all by herself before simon cowell.

  6. Yeah this is pretty sorry! Go back to work with Simon and Ryan Tedder, Leona, because this is really bad.

  7. Big MISS……I didn’t like any of tracks…I really thought I would love Colorblind (because I love the original) but she changed the melody and it sounds like shit.

  8. The CD-cover is a photoshop disaster, and the songs sucks too. Always the same ballad-shit.

  9. I actually liked all of them. Her voice is so beautiful!

  10. i like her dance stuff way better

  11. This is Leona in her element, her dance stuff is fine but this is what she does best. These really showcase her incredible voice I don’t get the dislike for these they’re great.
