In a few days we will have Alicia Keys new album "HERE" in stores. The songstress has revealed the tracklisting for the upcoming album which when released will be a follow up to her 2012's Girl On Fire album.
"This album is so much about life, New York City, us as people, all the stories I saw growing up,” Alicia said during a recent appearance on the “Today” show. “It sounds like the New York that I know. It’s aggressive, it’s raw, it’s me being my most truthful…It is such powerful music. You are going to go crazy."
"When u put out the track listing to my favorite album yet!! Only 6 more days til u can hear what I’ve been dreaming up for us! #AliciaIsHERE," she tweeted.
The album contains 16 tracks featuring five different interludes, including “The Beginning,” “Elevate,” “You Glow,” “Cocoa Butter,” and “Elaine Brown,” the latter referencing a famed activist.
So far, the only known guest on the album is A$AP Rocky, who appears on the previously-released “Blended Family (What You Do For Love).”
Other tracks include “Holy War” and “She Don’t Really Care,” which Keys performed at the Apple Music Festival in London. Surprisingly, “In Common,” initially thought to be the album’s lead single, and “Hallelujah” aren’t on the final version of the LP.
