UPDATE: The release date for Lea Michele's "Cannonball" will be on Tuesday, December 10, 2013. The Glee star has confirmed the date on Twitter. Have you preordered it yet?

Original article: Happy Thanksgiving, indeed! Just in time for the holiday, Glee darling Lea Michele (Rachel) has released the title of her debut album, her debut single, and the song’s official cover art.

The Glee star has been hard at work recording her album since September 2012, and now we’re getting oh-so-close to hearing her debut track. Per Lea herself, her album will be titled “Louder” and her first single will be “Cannonball.”

Lea tweeted the news on November 27: “So excited for everyone to hear my first single Cannonball, off my debut album LOUDER! #CANNONBALL.” She included a photo of the official cover art, which shows Lea, who is sporting dark eye makeup and messy, windblown hair, sitting in a crouched position and staring soulfully into the camera.

Just minutes before, the Glee star had tweeted, “I'VE GOT SOME VERY EXCITING NEWS TO SHARE WITH YOU GUYS..... :)

Lea filmed the music video for “Cannonball” on November 7, and though she posted a few photos from the shoot, she hadn’t released the name of the song quite yet.

“Louder” won’t be officially released until some time in 2014, but we’re willing to bet “Cannonball” will hit the airwaves before that. Congrats to Lea on this big news. We can’t wait to hear the solo track!
