Alicia Keys shows off her introspective side on her new empowering ballad ‘Brand New Me‘. The track about personal growth was co-written by Emeli Sandé, who also has writing credits on two other songs on Key’s forthcoming album ‘Girl On Fire‘.
Keys tells The BoomBox, who premiered the track:
“‘Brand New Me’ is about the journey it takes to get to a place where you are proud to be a new you, 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.”
