Alicia Keys Interview – “I think this album is definitely the best music I’ve ever made”
Alicia Keys is enjoying life more than ever these days. It’s the result of her having thought long and hard about who she was and what mattered most to her. In the course of that process of self-reflection she had an epiphany of sorts and realised that she needed to get back to her true self.
Q: Apart from Queen of Katwe, you’re also about to release your latest album, “Here.” What can you tell us about that?
KEYS: I think this album is definitely the best music I’ve ever made. It has a vibe to it that I’m very proud of – it’s very relevant to things that are happening in the world today and for me it has both an artistic and activist component. I’m much more vulnerable and open than I ever have been in my music, and there’s a while new energy in that. It’s different from anything I’ve done before and I hope it reaches people.
