Audio: Alicia Keys "Brand New Me"
We’re really on a roll with that good new r&b today. We got a live listen at last month’s iTunes fest, and now Alicia Keys comes through with the official version of her latest single, “Brand New Me” (co-written by Emeli Sandé). She’s really in her element in front of them keys – it may be “Brand New Me,” but it’s the same good ol’ Alicia. Check after the jump for words from Alicia on the song. Girl on Fire drops November 27th.[audio:http://static.okayplayer.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/Alicia_Keys-Brand_New_Me.mp3|titles=Alicia Keys “Brand New Me”]
“Brand New Me’ is about the journey it takes to get to a place where you are proud to be a new you,” Keys tells The BoomBox. “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.
“And this song is a conversation introducing them to the new you. Where nothing can hold you back and no one can hold you down.”
