Alicia Keys announces new album Here
Alicia Keys will release her new album 'Here' on November 4.
And in advance of the 35-year-old singer's highly-anticipated sixth studio album, she has dropped her latest single 'Blended Family (What You Do For Love)' featuring A$AP Rocky.
She said: "My new song 'Blended Family (What You Do For Love)' is inspired by my family's personal journey to cultivate deeper understanding, compassion, support and love.
"To me, family has no singular definition and the modern family is made up of all kinds of beautiful people willing to put love first."
The 15-time Grammy-winner's new record will touch on everything from the human condition to global politics.
She has worked on the record with a creative force she calls the ILLuminaries, comprised of herself, songwriter/producer Mark Batson, her rapper/producer husband Swizz Beatz and long-time collaborator Harold Lilly.
She said: "On this album, I've arrived here. A place where I'm willing to truthfully look at myself in the mirror and to also see the reality of who we have become in this world. The good, the ugly, the shadows and the light. I've come to see that in order for us to grow and to understand and accept each other we have to recognize the complexity of ourselves. We have to be able to talk about it and meet each other where we are, here."
She will debut the album with a special free concert for fans at a secret location in her hometown of New York on Sunday (09.10.16).
