Alicia Keys Puts Out Unreleased Track for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
In honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day yesterday, Alicia Keys put out an unreleased track through the section of her website titled The Vault.
The song is called “Power” and had originally been recorded in 2007, when Keys was working on her fourth studio album. However, up until the singer made an announcement on Twitter, fans hadn’t had a chance to hear “Power.” To get the track, fans can sign up for The Vault with Facebook or email.
Regarding the song, Keys said to fans: "This is one of my favorite unreleased songs. I was looking for my power. This song says it all. All of these pics inspire me! They represent the power of being yourself and finding yourself! Shine on!"
Keys’ last album was Girl on Fire, which came out in November 2012. The album, her fifth full-length release, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, selling 159,000 its first week. Unlike past releases, Girl on Fire was inspired by the singer’s marriage to producer Swizz Beatz, who also assisted with the album, and birth of her son Egypt.
The album generated a handful of singles, including the title track, which went up to No. 11 on the Billboard Hot 100. Other tracks included “Brand New Me,” “New Day,” and “Fire We Make.”
