‘X Factor’ champ Leona Lewis covers Oasis

Singer tackles one of the band's singles for forthcoming album

Leona Lewis has covered Oasis on her forthcoming second album.

The 2007 ‘X Factor’ winner has tackled ‘Stop Crying Your Heart Out’, which is taken from 2002’s Heathen Chemistry’, and was a Number Two hit when Oasis released it as a single in June 2002.

The Noel Gallagher-penned track will feature on ‘Echo’, which is released on November 16.


According to Popjustice.com who have heard the cover, the track is “a big ballad version… which is ridiculous, gets the full [first album cover Snow Patrol‘s] ‘Run’ treatment and is everything you’d expect it to be (‘X Factor’ choir at end, etc).”

It is rumoured that ‘Stop Crying Your Heart Out’ is being considered for a future single release.
