Leah (album)

"Leah" is the debut and only album ever released by Leah Haywood in Australia. Originally, the album was meant to be titled off one of the album tracks called "My Own Thing" but was changed closer to the release date. One of the tracks on the album titled "One Word" was featured on the second Australian soundtrack release of the American hit show Dawson's Creek. "Leah" fared rather poorly debuting and only peaking at #40 on the Australian ARIA album charts despite quite a large amount of promotion and positive reviews from music critics. All of the tracks with the exception of "Take A Chance" (which was solely written by Leah herself) were co-written by Leah and other songwriters and producers including Paul Begaud and Jorgen Eloffson.

The run times for the tracks "Just To Make You", "One Word", "Missing You" and "Take A Chance" are slightly below what is printed in the track listing. Particularly the track "Just To Make You" runs only for 3 minutes and 40 seconds instead 4 minutes and 10 seconds as stated in the list. Despite the track "Takin Back What's Mine" being stated as the "album version", there is literally no difference between the single released version and the one on the album.
