Alicia Keys has released a new video for the title track of her upcoming new album Girl on Fire. It shows her as a regular girl doing her menial household chores and family affairs, but conveying it in a glamorous and fun way, possibly to show her inner happiness despite the mundane lifestyle.
Keys posted a blog on her official site back in August speaking about the motivations behind the theme of the album, saying: “Let me just say before making this record, in some ways I felt like a lion locked in a cage… I felt like a girl misunderstood that no one really knew, I felt like it was time to stop making excuses for any part of my life that I wanted to change. Once I made that choice I became a Girl on Fire, the lion broke free!!”
She’s also revealed the tracklisitng for the album via her own Viddy account, with a video (below) showing her writing down the names of the songs along with a Twitter message that reads “GirlOnFire track listing looks like this!!!! Ahhh!!!!”. NME points out that last week she tweeted a picture of herself with Odd Future crooner Frank Ocean, which has lead to the thought that he might appear on the upcoming album.
Girl on Fire will be released in Australia on 23rd November.
