Woohoo! I'm in that empire state of mind now that Alicia Keys has announced she's dropping a new album!

As well as new music for her Broadway show 'Hell's Kitchen', which is loosely based on her life, the 'If I Ain't Got You' singer is also in the early stages of her 10th studio album. 💜

Speaking to VIBE, she said: “I think that’s what is so cool about Hell’s Kitchen. There is new music with Hell’s Kitchen and there are also some of your favorites, but the way that it’s done, you will never expect it. 🎉

The 'No One' hitmaker confirmed she's "in the process" of making her follow-up to her eighth studio album, 2021's 'Keys'. Alicia’s ninth album was the Christmas collection 'Santa Baby' in 2022.

She added: “I’m excited about new music through my own label, Alicia Keys Records, which I love. 

We love that too, Alicia! 💙

“I feel like sonically this one is going to be one of the best ones I’ve ever done. I feel there’s going to be melodies, really strong, very memorable, [and] very powerful. It’s going to feel good. I’m in the process of creating it, so even though I don’t fully know, but I know 2024 is going to go good. I’m excited to get into it.”

The 42-year-old singer also told WWD: “I’m going to start to work on the next body of work over these next couple of months.

“And I’m excited to really just take all of the essences and energies and continue to explore where music takes me in its most truthful form.”
