Alicia Keys Discusses Fifth Album

Alicia Keys

It’s been three years since we heard any new material from Alicia Keys. Since her hiatus, the R&B songbird became a new mom to three-year-old Egypt and is enjoying the married life with hubby Swizz Beatz. Now she’s ready to make her return to music.

Keys released a new video via her Twitter account to give fans an update on her follow-up album to her 2009 effort ‘The Element of Freedom.’ In the six-minute clip, the Grammy-winning singer sits at a piano and discusses her eight-month musical journey crafting songs for the project.

“I feel so crazy excited,” she says about the album, which has no title as of yet. “It’s like I’m a different person. Everything is new. From being married and having a baby and what’s that done for me. It’s giving me a sense of real stability. A real connection, grounding, reason [and] purpose.”

“I’ve become so much more intelligent and I survey the landscape more and try to come up with what’s the best thing for me, what’s the best thing for Egypt, what’s the best thing for our family,” she continued. “I am hungry, I am an animal right now. When it comes to sharing this music with you, I am like a caged animal that’s dying to escape.”

Since Keys is so anxious to release new music, she has been adding a hashtag to her tweets “#AKNewDay,” which could be a hint that her new album or single will be called ‘New Day.’


We can’t hardly wait. We are glad to see you back Alicia Keys!
