Alicia Keys‘ latest single “Girl On Fire” has been burning up the R&B charts, and we’ve heard a few other tracks from Keys’ upcoming third studio album, also titled Girl On Fire, including her promo single “New Day,” sweetly sentimental “Not Even the King” and slow jam “Brand New Me.” But last night (October 16) at a private concert in New York City, Keys debuted a new song titled “Listen To Your Heart” — and though it’s tough to identify the actual production style in the low-quality video, Keys’ powerhouse vocals and the song’s ambient, propulsive beat come through loud and clear. Watch it above.
“Listen To Your Heart” was reportedly penned by Keys herself along with her friend John Legend; described as an “eerie piano ballad,” this taste got us eager to hear the studio version. ”Even in front of so many people, we forget to listen to ourselves,” Keys explained. “I love that song very much and I just wanted to share it with you tonight.”
