Heartbreak on Hold is the second studio album by British recording artist Alexandra Burke. It was released on 4 June 2012 through RCA Records and Syco Music. Recording for the album started in late 2010 and finished in early 2012. Burke collaborated with a wide range of producers for the album, many of whom are noted for their distinct dance and house music influences, including Erick Morillo and DJ Smash. The album suffered a long series of delays to its release date. Originally expected for a summer 2011 release, the original album was shelved as Burke parted ways with record label Syco, with whom she had been signed since winning The X Factor, in favour of RCA. This transition also led to a distinct change in musical direction for the album, with the R&B influences of her debut album being replaced with more dance-orientated production.

She was then hoisted 30 feet into the air, where she played a piano with legs borrowed from surrealist... Read More
