Public pressure forces record label U-turn
Lewis’ label Sony BMG initially refused to release ‘Run’ as a single, instead making it available on a reissue of her 2007 debut album, ‘Spirit’.
The song had been introduced by presenter Dermot O’Leary as “her next single” when she performed it on ‘The X Factor’ earlier this month – and fans reacted badly when it was revealed that it would not be released as a single.
Now the decision has been reversed, the track will be available as a download from Sunday (November 30), reports The Sun.
The newspaper quotes an anonymous source as saying, “Chiefs were stunned by the reaction. They’ve finally seen sense and bowed to pressure.”
