Alicia Keys hopes fans appreciate the "insane" songs on her new album.
The singer has spoken about producing her upcoming record, titled Girl on Fire. Alicia explained she took a different approach to her previous musical offerings.
"This album represents a new me in every way. I mean, you're still going to feel me and you're still going to identify with what part of me you've identified with before. So that's the cool part. But everything about it is different because my mind frame is different, the energy about it is different, the song lyrics are different," she told Entertainment Weekly.
"There was something that happened to me that I just really wanted to write these great songs. I sat there and was just really focused on writing songs. I wasn't focused so much on creating some crazy beat.
"I wanted to write these insane songs that could live on their own and people couldn't deny them."
In a statement on her website recently, Alicia shared her anticipation about the album.
'I'm in the studio right now working away on my new album and I am SO excited!!!' she wrote.here to win an iPhone5!
