Fourteen-time Grammy®-winning singer, songwriter and producer, Alicia Keys, will release her highly anticipated fifth studio album, Girl On Fire, on November 26, 2012 on RCA Records.
Alicia Keys will showcase material from Girl On Fire with a special electrifying performance at iTunes Festival at Roundhouse London on 28th September.
The title track, "Girl On Fire," will be available on iTunes on November 18th.
"'Girl On Fire' is about finding your voice, about being unleashed and about trusting your instincts and trusting yourself," says Keys. "I can't wait to share it with the world."
Girl On Fire features powerful anthems and intimate ballads, led by Keys' signature soulful voice and personable and relatable lyrics.
Keys collaborated with acclaimed and emerging talents, including longtime song writing partner, Krucial, Grammy Award-winner Babyface, renowned writer and vocalist Jeff Bhasker, critically-acclaimed artist Gary Clarke Jr., up and comers, Pop and Oak, as well as emerging talent from the U.K., Emeli Sandé and Jamie XX, among others.
The songs on Girl On Fire are anchored by Alicia Key's powerful vocals and trademark piano, but are sonically broadened by heavy drums, electric sounds, reggae and future soul, which gives the album an evolved, modern-day feel while simultaneously sounding like a classic body of timeless music. The album features an inspirational mix of the rich sounds Keys discovered while recording and travelling the world, particularly time she spent in London and Jamaica, layered within her New York City roots.
In June, Keys gave fans a sneak peek to new music on the album by releasing a lyric video for the booming anthem, "New Day."
