MANILA, Philippines – Singer and actress Lea Michele has released a song from her upcoming album Louder, which she says is especially important to her because it makes her think of her late boyfriend and fellow Glee star Cory Monteith.

In an interview with Elle published back in November, Lea said that the song, recorded before Cory’s death, helped her keep Cory’s memory alive. “It makes me so happy, this song … It makes me think so much of Cory. It was ours. When I think of him, I play this.” (READ: The best of Cory Monteith in Glee)

“And I told you all my dreams and fears / And you looked at me and your eyes filled with tears / And you said those three words, I’ve been waiting for / You became a part of me,” she sings on the track. 

The release of the track was followed by overwhelming support from her fans, as well as Cory’s.

Louder also contains the song “Cannonball” which she revealed also helped her get through Cory’s death.

“You’re Mine” was co-written by Australian singer-songwriter Sia Furler who has also worked with Katy Perry, Rihanna, and Christina Aguilera. One of Sia collaborations on the album is “If You Say So,” named after the last words Cory said to Lea.

Lea and Cory met at the set of the TV musical Glee in 2009, where they played students on opposite ends of the high school hierarchy. They became a real life couple in 2012. 

Their relationship survived Cory’s brief stint in rehab after his substance abuse was confirmed. They reunited afterwards, but Cory later died after a drug overdose.

According to Lea’s Twitter, Louder is set to come out in March.
