Alicia Keys is releasing new single Brand New Me on 17th February.
The track is the second to be lifted from her latest album Girl on Fire, following the title track which featured Nicki Minaj. Brand New Me was co-written with Emeli Sande and is currently riding high on the Radio 1 playlist.
“The crazy thing about that song is how it catches people off guard,” says Keys, “The song is about finding a new you and letting go of anyone that doesn’t know you anymore. It’s about someone in your life that for whatever reason you’ve outgrown. It’s a conversation between you and that person where you say, ‘You might not have seen me in a while, you might not recognize this brand new me.’”
Recently Alicia was nominated for a BRIT award for International Female Solo Artist. She also performed for President Obama at his inauguration ceremony.
