‘Love Is Alive’ With Lea Michele On New Single Teaser

Lea Michele has officially kicked off her new era. Three years after dropping her debut album, Louder, the 30-year-old actress is releasing her sophomore followup, Places.

“This album is really about coming back to my roots and the music and artists that inspired me growing up,” Michele tells PEOPLE. “Being that I grew up in New York and on Broadway, I wanted this video to be shot at a theater to give the illusion of coming back home.”

The first taste off her LP officially arrives on iTunes this Friday, March 3, but Lea has uploaded a minute-long video teaser of “Love Is Alive.” Not surprisingly, it’s a soaring ballad where the former Glee actress gets to show off her pipes. Watch out Celine, she’s coming for you 😉

Personally, I was hoping for a banger. Her underrated “On My Way” was my favorite cut from her debut album. Fingers crossed there are a few uptempo numbers included on the new album. Check out a preview of “Love Is Alive” below.
