It seems like with Alicia Keys‘ upcoming new album, the singer is going the inspirational route. The album’s beautiful first single, “Girl on Fire,” is an ode to strong women out there. “Brand New,” the track Alicia just released, uses the singer’s own life story to inspire folks out there.
The song is a powerful balled that starts off slow and quiet and then builds up with booming drums and Alicia’s voice.
TheBoomBox premièred the song and along with the exclusive, they also got a chance to talk with her about the track.
Alicia said this:
“‘Brand New Me’ is about the journey it takes to get to a place where you are proud to be a new you…There is nothing wrong with growing. There may be people in your life that knew you for a long time and they think of you only as the person you used to be and not the person you now are.”
