Alicia Keys – “New Day”
“So, what are doing for the summer??” Keys asked fans on Twitter Tuesday night. “Yes! I’ll be putting the finishing touches on this journey I’m dying to share with you!!!”
Keys has been working on her new album for over eight months, and in a video she posted earlier this week, she revealed that the album’s content is heavily inspired by her becoming a mother (to her adorable son Egypt) and a wife (to producer/rapper Swizz Beatz).
“Everything is new, from being married and having a baby, and what that’s done for me in just giving me a sense of real stability, real connection, grounding, reason, and purpose,” she says in the video, describing herself as “a whole new person.”
She continues: “So much of the music that you’re going to hear is talking about what that feels like, what we’re all going through, all of us… That empowerment, that freedom is definitely something that’s reflected in this album.”
