Leona Lewis - Leona Lewis Settles Dispute Over Collide

Leona Lewis has settled a legal dispute over her new single 'Collide'.

Swedish DJ Avicii had attempted to block the track from release through a court ruling - as it uses music he created and was planning to release under the title 'Fade Into Darkness' - but Leona's label, Syco, have now settled the matter and the single will be released as a collaboration between the two artists.

Syco were said to have reached the agreement with Avicii's record company, Ministry of Sound, after a hearing in a London court.

A statement from the label said: "It is announced today that Leona Lewis and Avicii will work together on the forthcoming single Collide.

"Since getting its first radio play in the UK it has received rave reviews and is already topping club charts across the country."

Avicii - real name Tim Bergling - tweeted: "Glad to have finally resolved situation with Leona. So happy to move on with Leona and focus on having a hit together."

Leona has previously said she "fell in love" with the track from the first time she heard it.

She tweeted: "When Avicii sent his track out to have a song written over it I totally fell in love with this version and I think he's super talented (sic)."

'Collide' will now be released as planned on September 4.
