Girl On Fire is the singer-songwriter’s first album since 2009’s The Element of Freedom.
Alicia Keys strikes a strong pose on the cover of Girl On Fire, which has been described as a “fresh start” for the R&B star. Recorded mostly in London and Jamaica, the album will be released November 27 on RCA.
According to Billboard, Keys collaborated with Jamie XX, who notably re-purposed his remix of Gil-Scott Heron’s ‘I’ll Take Care Of You’ into the Drake-Rihanna smash ‘Take Care.’ The producer’s inclusion would help explain the “heavy drums, electric sounds, reggae and future soul” promised in the singer’s press release.
The album also features collaborations with Babyface, Krucial, Jeff Bhasaker, Gary Clark Jr., and Emeli Sande. Watch the fan-assisted video for single ‘New Day’ below.
