Alicia Keys Says Marriage, Family Inspired “New Day”

Alicia Keys took the web by storm Thursday, teasing the first song from her upcoming fifth studio album. Titled “New Day,” the song is indicative of where Keys is in her life and what will be featured on the anticipated album.

“Everything is new, from being married and having a baby, and what that’s done for me in just giving me a sense of real stability, real connection, grounding, reason, and purpose,” Keys said announcing the track and forthcoming album. “So much of the music that you’re going to hear is talking about what that feels like, what we’re all going through, all of us… that empowerment, that freedom, is definitely something that’s reflected in this album.”

Due later this year, the as-yet-untitled album is a follow up to her celebrated 2009 effort “The Element of Freedom.”

After listening to “New Day,” it might just be the perfect title for her album (“New Day” or “A New Day”).
