Lea Michele fittingly takes center stage in the music video for the first single, “Cannonball,” which premiered on Vevo this afternoon.

The video features lots of pretty close-ups of a vulnerable looking Lea singing in a rundown room with a broken piano. Sun streaks through the windows as the Glee star, dressed in a flowing black dress, slowly finds her strength as the song crescendos.

Watch the video below:

Michele recently spoke with MTV News about her latest single, saying the track has become her “anthem” — and also opened up about how the song has helped her heal following the sudden death of her boyfriend and fellow Glee star Cory Monteith.

“The minute I heard the song, I had a physical reaction to it. For me, it’s been my strength,” the singer told MTV of her new single. “I listen to it every day. I know it was brought into my life for a reason.”

Co-written by Sia (Britney Spears, Katy Perry) and Benny Blanco (Maroon 5), “Cannonball” is the first single off of Michele’s upcoming debut album, Louder, due out on March. 4.
