Soul queen Alicia Keys has just dropped her brand new single ‘In Common’.
Penned by Alicia, alongside Illangelo, Tayla Parks and Billy Walsh, the track marks the beginning of the campaign for the singer’s first album release in four long years. Said album is set for release in the third quarter of 2016.
The single is all about the commonalities we face as members of the human race.
“We all have our issues, our challenges,” she explains. “We are all kind of messed up and that’s all right. In fact, that’s what helps us understand each other. To me, that is what’s so beautiful.”
Issues of humanity, activism and feminism are said to be at the lyrical heart of the new album, which will be her first since 2012’s ‘Girl On Fire’.
‘In Common’ is available digitally now.
