4 Jul

Leona Lewis has reunited with Walter Afanasieff for a new collaboration.

“Singing with Walter A is like a dream come true, the most incredible pianist/composer/writer/ human!” the British singer, songwriter, and actress tweeted on Tuesday (July 04, 2017).

Afanasieff previously produced and co-wrote “Here I Am” alongside fellow musician Brett James, taken from Lewis’ debut studio collection, 2007’s “Spirit,” which topped both the UK and US Albums Chart.

The Grammy Award-winning record producer’s extensive resume boasts additional works with Mariah Carey (“Hero”), Celine Dion (“My Heart Will Go On”), Luther Vandross (“Endless Love”), Beyonce (“My Heart Still Beats”), Darren Hayes (“Insatiable”), Ricky Martin (“Nobody Wants to Be Lonely”), Allure (“Last Chance”) and Chante Moore (“One More Time”).

Meanwhile, Lewis is expected to release her next project, which serves as the follow-up to 2015’s “I Am,” later this year via iTunes, Apple Music, Amazon, Google Play, Tidal and all other digital streaming platforms.

Among the songwriters and producers expected to appear on the still-untitled collection are Jake Gosling (Dido, Ed Sheeran), Autumn Rowe (Kelis, Molly Kate Kestner), Chris Leonard (Nina Nesbitt, Shawn Mendes), Ilsey Juber (Lykke Li, Ellie Goulding) and Ali Tamposi (Selena Gomez, Troye Sivan).
