“Cannonball,” which was written by Sia, sounds like it’s all about new beginnings. Lea tweeted out a lyric from her first single, writing, “I’ve got this new beginning and I will fly I’ll fly like a CANNONBALL #CANNONBALL.”

She also revealed the Louder track listing! 11 songs make up Lea’s first album, including “You’re Mine,” which she dedicated to Cory Monteith.
