How good does Alexandra Burke’s Heartbreak On Hold sound?


Alexandra Burke has generously released 30-second snippets of every song from her upcoming second album Heartbreak On Hold, which finally gets its UK release on June 4. How does it sound? Promising. The good news is that ‘Elephant’ seems like one of the weakest songs – which makes the decision to release it as a single even more puzzling – and, whilst the rest of it doesn’t exactly sound like the most boundary-pushing effort of the year, we are pretty excited to hear the full record. We’re particularly stoked by ‘Sitting On Top Of The World’ and ‘Between The Sheets’. Our only hope is that Alexandra still has some kind of ‘identity’ on it, and doesn’t get lost in a been-there-done-that LP full of songs that sound influenced by Every Song In The Charts 2009-2012. Still, if all else fails, at least there’s an EPIC piano ballad tagged on the end.
