Alicia Keys serves up some new music for her fans last week with a single “Brand New Me,” off her upcoming album Girl On Fire, due November 27.
The piano-driven single was co-written by Scottish Emeli Sandé.
During a recent interview with the Boombox, Alicia Keys says the single embodies her remarkable journey to become the person she is today.
“‘Brand New Me’ is about the journey it takes to get to a place where you are proud to be a new you,” Keys said. “There is nothing wrong with growing. There may be people in your life that knew you for a long time and they think of you only as the person you used to be and not the person you now are. And this song is a conversation introducing them to the new you, where nothing can hold you back and no one can hold you down.”
The album Girl On Fire also features the lead single of the same name featuring Nicki Minaj. The album will also see appearances from Pop & Oak, Maxwell, Babyface, John Legend and more.
