Earlier this morning, soul-R&B songstress Alicia Keys unveiled the new album cover for her upcoming album, ‘Girl On Fire’ announced to be released on November 27th. With her new hair-do, sound, and lifestyle as a beautiful and successful mother, wife, and recording artist, Keys is looking at another peek of perfection in her life.
According to Alicia, this album is about new beginnings and fresh starts. She recently wrote on her website:
It is called Girl on Fire!!! And that’s exactly how I feel!!! You’ll be learning more about it soon… but let me just say 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!!
During the recording process, I mostly stayed in NY but on some cool and memorable occasions, I traveled to different places, and worked with many collaborators, (some old friends, some new). I discovered so many beautiful sounds, and meanings and a lot about the power of a song. I can’t wait to share this album with you. I promise when you hear it, it’s a new me, I gave it my all: powerful, soulful, honesty and heart… With Girl on Fire, I want to move you and surprise you.
Alicia Keys also posted a behind the scenes video explaining the journey of making ‘A Girl On Fire’, by clicking HERE!
“Girl on Fire is about new beginnings, new perspectives and fresh starts… stripping away all the bad energy in your life and taking full control of the reigns and how you want to live. There is something really empowering about finding yourself and your own inner strength. On one song, One of the lines I wrote says, “I’ll never be perfect, but at least now I’m brave!”
Here’s to finding your power! Your FIRE!!
Be sure to stay tuned for more information on this exciting and up-coming album!
