Lea Michele has released her moving new song “Love Is Alive” today. The song, available now via the above platforms, is “about believing in love and the power and beauty of love,” she told People Magazine. “It made me so happy while recording it, and I hope it brings the same light and joy to everyone else as it has for me.” “Love Is Alive” was first teased on Wednesday in a video clip, shot in downtown Los Angeles, and is the first track to be unveiled from her upcoming sophomore album ‘Places.’ Lea is set to perform the song on The Late Late Show with James Corden on March 14.
“When it came time to name my album, I settled on ‘Places’ because this album for me represents a return to form, a return to the stage, and a return to the place I belong,” Lea says. “When you perform on Broadway the word “Places” is the last thing you hear over the loudspeaker before a show is about to begin. “Places” I thought was the perfect title for this music and how it reflects who I am as an artist today and where I come from.”
Lea debuted her new music live for the first time at three intimate sold out shows at New York’s Appel Room and Los Angeles’ The Broad Stage and Hotel Cafe in January. Due to popular demand, additional shows are set to be confirmed very soon.
Lea is set to release her sophomore album ‘Places’ later this year on Columbia Records.
