Alicia Keys announced she was working on her new studio album a few weeks ago, and today she surprises us with a new drop titled ‘We Are Here’. It is unclear if this will live on her new album set to drop later this year or early next year (she is expecting a child in December), but the track is thoughtful and definitely is memorable. See what Alicia had to say about the track below:
“The day I wrote this song, I was sitting in a circle of people of all ages and we were asked, “Why are you here.” Why am I here?? This really hit me on a deep level. I realized no one had ever asked me that question before. As I prepare to give birth to a new child, I can’t help and think about the world I’m bringing my baby into. No matter where we come from, when we see the state of the world today, we can all feel the growing frustration and desire to make a difference. And we all have a voice – we just need to know how to make it heard.
