Alicia Keys will release her new highly-anticipated sixth studio album, HERE, on 4th November on RCA Records. From the human condition to global politics, HERE offers a keen glimpse of everything that matters most to Keys.
Today, Alicia released beautiful new song Blended Family (What You Do For Love) featuring A$AP Rocky from the upcoming album. Co-written by Alicia Keys and produced by Keys and Mark Batson, the song is a reflection of the honesty portrayed throughout all of HERE.
“My new song Blended Family (What You Do For Love) is inspired by my family’s personal journey to cultivate deeper understanding, compassion, support and love,” says Keys. “To me, family has no singular definition and the modern family is made up of all kinds of beautiful people willing to put love first.”
Urgent, intimate and musically daring, HERE is Alicia’s truth laid bare. Each track a confession; every melody a prayer.
“On this album, I’ve arrived HERE,” Keys says. “A place where I’m willing to truthfully look at myself in the mirror and to also see the reality of who we have become in this world. The good, the ugly, the shadows and the light. I’ve come to realise that in order for us to grow and to understand and accept each other we have to recognise the complexity of ourselves. We have to be able to talk about it and meet each other where we are, HERE.“
