The 15-time Grammy award-winning singer, songwriter and producer is set to release her sixth studio album ‘HERE’ on 4 Nov
The 15-time Grammy award-winning singer, songwriter and producer, Alicia Keys will release her new highly-anticipated sixth studio album, HERE, on 4 November on RCA Records. Coinciding with the announcement, she released the new song Blended Family (What You Do For Love) featuring A$AP Rocky, which was co-written by Keys and produced by her and Mark Batson.
“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,” says Keys. “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 majority of HERE’s production credits belong to a creative force Keys calls the ILLuminaries, comprised of herself, her long-time songwriting collaborator Harold Lilly, songwriter-producer Mark Batson and rapper-producer Swizz Beatz.
“On this album, I’ve arrived HERE,” Keys goes on to explain. “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 realize 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.”
HERE is available for pre-order now. Keys will showcase new music from the album with a special free concert for fans at a secret location in her hometown of New York on Sunday 9 October. For more information, details and updates, visit aliciakeys.com
