New Music Album: Alicia Keys "Girl On Fire"
Alicia Keys wrote on her website
"I'm in the studio right now working away on my new album and I am SO excited!!! I'm ignited!!! I'm like a match to a flame! I've had the title of this album in my mind for a long time," she wrote. "It's been hard to hold it back and now I'm not holding it back anymore! 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!!"
"For the new album, it is a new journey. It is a new story. There's so much that is new to talk about, and I think all of our journeys are so incredible," Keys said. "So being a new mom, a new wife, being a woman who's really trying to find herself, take control of my life, my business, my world, I think that there comes a certain point in life where you realize that you know you can really choose the life that you want, and so it's really about that journey and kind of finding that bravery, finding that inner-strength to trust yourself, believe in yourself and know that you really have all the tools."
"Here's to finding your power! Your FIRE!, Stay tuned for more. In the meantime, thank you for all your love, strength and support. Alicia, A Girl On Fire!!!!"
