Lea Michele unveils Cory Monteith tribute song You're Mine

Categories: Celebrities, Music, Television

Nearly seven months after Canadian actor Cory Monteith's death, the late Glee star's on-and-offscreen girlfriend Lea Michele has unveiled a tribute song in his honour.

The 27-year-old American actress and singer has described the upbeat, romantic song You're Mine as her favourite off her upcoming solo debut album Louder.

Michele began discussing the track last fall. It was just one of several songs on the album inspired by her relationship with Monteith — asked for a couple of them to be added at the last minute, after his death in Vancouver hotel room due to a toxic combination of heroin and alcohol.

Though her album was complete, she told Elle magazine that she felt she would live to regret it if she didn't include them.

"It makes me so happy, this song [You're Mine]. It makes me think so much of Cory. It was ours. When I think of him, I play this."
