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.

"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."
