Introducing: Alex Newell
You may remember Alex Newell as the fabulous transgender student, Unique, from FOX’s hit TV show Glee. What you may not know about the actor is that he’s a budding pop star. Well maybe you have given the show he was on; but he’s finally ready to leave all the Glee-fulness behind him in order to start a new chapter in 2016.
In all honesty, Alex isn’t totally new to the pop scene. He signed with Atlantic Records back in 2013 and appeared as the voice on Clean Bandit’s ‘Stronger’ just under a year ago. On top of that, he’s been dabbling here and there with a few DJ’s and one-off covers and holidays singles. Now, he’s finally ready to step out on his own with his debut EP, ‘Power’, and the set’s first single ‘This Ain’t Over’.
‘This Ain’t Over’ couldn’t be a stronger note to start off on. It’s not a secret that Alex has a very strong, distinct voice that’s full of a theatrics. A house driven dance track is the perfect fit for him, allowing him to really soar. Come to think of it, he’s giving us a very strong reminder of Adam Lambert’s knack for electro driven dance-pop. Funnily enough, Alex is joining Adam this spring on The Original High Tour.
With his EP due out in a few short weeks, are you ready to experience more of the ‘Power’ Alex seems to be hiding?
