Lea Michele is bold and beautiful in her debut single, "Cannonball."
We've been wanting a Lea Michele single foreverrrr. Ever since we first heard her belt out Fleetwood Mac's "Go Your Own Way" on "Glee," we had a sneaking suspicion that Lea would have noooo trouble transitioning into the pop mainstream. Well, today marks that very day, friends! Behold: a just-over-a-minute preview of Lea's debut single, "Cannonball," which is due to appear on Lea's forthcoming Louder album, dropping in early 2014.
Listen to a preview of Lea Michele's "Cannonball" after the jump.
Set to a booming, piano-driven track, "Cannonball" features Lea's crystal clear pipes as she boldly chants the song's empowering lyrics: "And now I will start living today/ I close the door/ I got this new beginning/ And I will fly/ I'll fly like a cannonball."
So far, "Cannonball" sounds like the perfect blend of Lea's theatrical roots and some expertly executed pop production. Expect this track to be a hit among theater kids, Gleeks, and people who love empowering female pop jams. (Sooo, basically everyone.)
