First Listen: Leona Lewis – Hurt: The EP

Leona Lewis releases Hurt: The EP today in the UK. The 3 track EP features covers of famous hits by Nine Inch nails (Hurt), Goo Goo Dolls (Iris), and Counting Crows (Colorblind).

Her interpretations of these first-rate tunes are well above average ballad material, right on par with her Snow Patrol cover of  “Run”. In all we have a nice 3 song collection of somber yet beautiful renditions that may cause you to shed a tear or two. Listen to the tracks below and if you like them be sure to support Leona and purchase Hurt: The EP on Amazon.

This will do until her much anticipated, unfortunately pushed back, bound to be hit album, Glassheart drops on March 26th, 2012.
