Alicia Keys – new tracks and album announcement






Keys - Cover Art

[New York, NY – October 29, 2021] 15-time GRAMMY® Award-winning artist and worldwide-celebrated music icon Alicia Keys is welcoming everyone into her world with her all-new double album, “KEYS,” out December 10th via RCA Records. Upon arrival to the world of “KEYS,” you will experience a dual world featuring all new Originals that are quintessential Alicia Keys, as everyone has come to know and love her since her debut. Along with the Originals side, you will also experience the Unlocked version where Alicia sampled her all-new originals with the help of GRAMMY® Award winning producer Mike Will for a new vibe on the Unlocked side.  Alicia took to her social media earlier this week to tease the forthcoming album and shared, “There’s two sides to every story, and there’s two sides to every song on ‘KEYS,’ so you get the vibe with two sides of me.” Pre-order the album here and pre-save here.

In tandem with today’s invitation to the world of “KEYS,” Alicia is continuing to own her lane as she gives another taste of the vibe of the new album with her sultry, yet vulnerable new single, “Best of Me,” with both the Originals and Unlocked versions out now. Keys first teased the single earlier this month when she posted a beautifully stripped back a cappella clip of her effortlessly singing, “you get the side of me, I would hold back and not reveal…it makes me come alive, don’t be a lie it feels so real. You get the best of me.” Listen to “Best of Me” Original and Unlocked here and watch the official video, directed by TT The Artist, here.

“KEYS,” the album, will also feature “LALA,” the first single, released last month, featuring Diamond Selling Recording Artist Swae Lee, along with “Best of Me” and more new tracks.

Following the release of “LALA,” Alicia also released her intimate performance docuseries for YouTube Originals, “Noted: Alicia Keys The Untold Stories,” which she executive produced. All four episodes are available to watch now on Alicia Keys’ YouTube channel. View the trailer here.
