Clive Davis and Simon Cowell will partner to supervise the debut album by Leona Lewis, winner of "The X Factor," the U.K.'s equivalent to "American Idol."

The album, due later this summer 2007, will be released via J/Syco Records. Davis and Cowell will share song and producer selection.

Cowell is the creator and producer of "The X Factor" and he also serves as one of the judges on the show, which is one of the most watched in Britain. J and Syco say Lewis will be the first winner of a television talent show to be given a "major global launch."
