Artist: Alicia Keys
Single: Brand New Me
Label: Sony Music
Alicia Keys has always been an exciting song writer and musician every since the release of her debut album Songs In A Minor - and this week she is back.
Brand New Me is the second single to be lifted off her fifth studio album Girl On Fire and it is one the best tracks that she has released in recent years.
Keys penned the track with Emeli Sande and both artists have a knack of telling stories and wearing their heart on their sleeves when it comes to their music.
And that is exactly what Keys has done with this track as she sings about finding the strength to leave a relationship that is no longer working for her.
The beginning of the track is stripped back as Keys’ vocals take centre stage - supported by the piano -
before Keys shows off the year power of her vocal and the intensity of the tracks is notched up.
Brand New Me is an incredibly beautiful track and there is a sincerity in Keys’ vocal and she pours in the emotion with every word
Girl On Fire is an album that shows off Keys at her very best and with tracks like this it is not hard to see why.
