The Hampshire-born singer was last in the charts in September 2014, when the poppy So There reached #33 on the UK top forty. Fast forward just eight months, and the 26 year old Roc Nation signee is barely recognisable as the same pop star.
We Broke The Sky is an emotionally wrought ballad about retrospective longing, with Alexa displaying some weighty vocal gravitas as she relates the state of a past relationship.
The stylishly shot video very much paints her as the star of this piece, cutting between black and white clips of her arm grabbing at clouds or lying down in the rain, and shots of her walking like a free spirit in front of a mountainous wilderness.
We Broke The Sky is a very good comeback and a big step in the right direction for the up-and-coming star, and it will be released to iTunes on 28 August.
