Alicia Keys announces new album

Alicia Keys has unveiled the name and concept of her upcoming album via a post on her website

Announcing the title is Girl On Fire (no reference to The Hunger Games, apparently), the R’n’B singer said the record is “about new beginnings, new perspectives and fresh starts.”

“…before making this record, in some ways I felt like a lion locked in a cage…I felt like a girl misunderstood that no one really knew, I felt like it was time to stop making excuses for any part of my life that I wanted to change. Once I made that choice I became a Girl on Fire, the lion broke free!!”

Not givingmuch away about the album’s production, Keys has said it is mostly being recorded in New York though, and will feature “many collaborators, (some old friends, some new).”

Earlier this month her track New Day was sampled by rapper 50 Cent, for his upcoming fifth album, Street King Immortal.
