Lea Michele is ready to fly like a "Cannonball."

The Glee star teased the upcoming release of the emotional tune's music video and shared a 15-second clip on her Instagram account on Wednesday, Jan. 8.

"Go to my Instagram now to see a special sneak peek clip of my !!!!" she also tweeted to her fans. The full-length music video will debut on Thursday, Jan. 9 at 7:30 p.m.ET.

The brunette beauty, clad in a sleeveless black top and puffy black skirt, stares seductively into the camera as she belts out the chorus of the upbeat ballad. The 27-year-old is standing in what appears to be an abandoned studio and the sun streams in from behind her as she sings the heartfelt lyrics.

Michele recently offered a behind-the-scenes look at the upcoming music video last month, sharing a photo from the set.

"Video shoot! #Cannonball #LOUDER," Michele tweeted on Monday, Dec. 16  along with the pic, in which she's slumping over and wearing a short white dress.

During an interview on Z100's Elvis Duran and the Morning Show, Michele talked further about how she's been dealing with Cory Monteith's death, noting that she is trying to seize the "opportunity right now to be inspiring or encouraging for anyone—make something positive out of it."

"Cannonball" is "more than just a song for me," admitted the star of stage and screen. "It has helped me so much in this process personally. It's given me strength; it's given me hope. I get upset thinking about it, it's really inspiring."

And while she didn't mention whether "Cannonball" was one of the song's Monteith gave his seal of approval to, Michele revealed that her late boyfriend had listened and given a thumbs-up to almost every song on her upcoming album Louder.

"What I love so much about the album, with the exception of two songs he heard every single song," Michele recalled. "He was like my biggest fan and critic and he loved every song! He would give me all of his notes and I took every one into consideration."
