Info for HERE



Fifteen-time Grammy®-winning singer, songwriter and producer, Alicia Keys, will release her new highly-anticipated sixth studio album, HERE. From the human condition to global politics, HERE offers a keen glimpse of everything that matters most to Keys.

Today, Alicia released the beautiful new song “Blended Family (What You Do For Love)” featuring A$AP Rocky from the upcoming album. Co-written by Alicia Keys and produced by Keys and Mark Batson, the song is a reflection of the honesty portrayed throughout all of HERE.

“My new song “Blended Family (What You Do For Love)” is inspired by my family’s personal journey to cultivate deeper understanding, compassion, support and love,” says Keys. “To me, family has no singular definition and the modern family is made up of all kinds of beautiful people willing to put love first.” You can listen to “Blended Family (What You Do For Love)” here: Urgent, intimate and musically daring, HERE is Keys’ truth laid bare: each track a confession; every melody a prayer.

The majority of HERE’s production credits belong to a creative force Keys calls the ILLuminaries, comprised of herself; songwriter/producer Mark Batson; rapper/producer Swizz Beatz; and long-time Keys songwriting collaborator Harold Lilly. With this album, Keys made a list of things she wanted to talk about, themes she wanted to explore. The result is HERE speaking to Alicia’s roots in NYC and hip-hop culture. The music on the album blends her perspective of the raw humanity of the world and who she is today as a woman and artist.

“On this album, I’ve arrived HERE,” Keys says. “A place where I’m willing to truthfully look at myself in the mirror and to also see the reality of who we have become in this world. The good, the ugly, the shadows and the light. I’ve come to realize that in order for us to grow and to understand and accept each other we have to recognize the complexity of ourselves. We have to be able to talk about it and meet each other where we are, HERE.”

Finally, Alicia Keys has signed its first contract with Arista Records in 1998.

The themes show the unmistakable symptoms of finding a star of critics and audiences, through songs melodic, deep and full of content that allow us to discover in all its glory Alicia musical. Most of the songs on the album, including a composition as bright as Fallin 'Troubles shocking or have been written and produced by herself. In addition, Alicia Keys has worked with Jermaine Dupri and Isaac Hayes Girlfriend in Rock wit U, an issue that was included in the soundtrack to the film Shaft (2000).
