During the 90-minute YouTube Livestream and Google+ Hangout, Keys will play selections from all tracks on the album and offer insights and stories from the recording process. She’ll discuss the making of the album and her incredible array of collaborators. She also will engage her fans in an interactive Q&A.
Keys is set to release her highly anticipated fifth studio album, Girl on Fire (November 27th), which features powerful anthems and intimate ballads, led by Keys’ signature soulful voice, and personable and relatable lyrics. Keys collaborated with acclaimed and emerging talent, including longtime song writing partner, Krucial, Grammy® Award-winners Babyface, Maxwell and Bruno Mars, renowned writer and vocalist Jeff Bhasker, critically-acclaimed artists Gary Clarke Jr., and Frank Ocean, as well as emerging talent from the U.K., Emeli Sandé and Jamie XX.
The songs on Girl On Fire are anchored by Keys’ powerful vocals and trademark piano, but are sonically broadened by heavy drums, electric sounds, reggae and future soul, which gives the album an evolved, modern-day feel while simultaneously sounding like a classic body of timeless music. The album features an inspirational mix of the rich sounds Keys discovered while recording and traveling the world, particularly time she spent in London and Jamaica, layered within her New York City roots.
