I Am is the fifth studio album by British singer and songwriter Leona Lewis. It will be released on 11 September 2015 by Island Records UK. Recording began in mid 2013, during the production of Lewis's first Christmas and fourth studio album, Christmas, with Love (2013). Recording sessions resumed in January 2014. The singer has already recorded some songs with producer Poet, and has expressed desire to work with Haim, Bruno Mars and The Smeezingtons. She has confirmed that the album will have a Motown feel and that the majority of songs will be "fun." In June 2014, Lewis left her UK label Syco and signed a new contract with Island Records UK.
