How good is Alicia Keys looking in the cover for her new album, Girl On Fire? The star is set to release her fifth studio album at the end of November. Her first single off that album, the same title as the album, will be revealed on the 6th of September at this year’s MTV VMA‘s. It hits radio playlists and iTunes on the 4th though. Cue the countdown.
So what’s the album about? “’Girl On Fire’ is about finding your voice, about being unleashed and about trusting your instincts and trusting yourself. I can’t wait to share it with the world,” says Ms. Keys. On this one she has once again worked with longtime song writing partner, Krucial. She has also worked with Babyface, Emili Sandé, Jamie XX and Gary Clarke Jr. Her trademark piano will no doubt be there, but this time she’s expanding her repertoire by exploring heavy drums, some electric and reggae influences. This she attributes to spending time in places like London and Jamaica.
I’ll bring you more on this release when I have the necessary details but you can also check out her online properties:
Here’s my jam at the moment, it’s Alicia, 50 and Dre… New Day. Love it!
