KEYS TO PERFORM LIVE AT EXPO 2020 DUBAI UAE TODAY

[New York, NY – December 10, 2021] 15-time GRAMMY® Award-winning artist and worldwide-celebrated music icon Alicia Keys is welcoming everyone into her world with her all-new double album, KEYS, out today via RCA Records. In tandem with today’s release, Alicia invites you into a dream-like state in her new music video for “Old Memories,” directed by Sylvia M. Zakhary & Sing J Lee. The video is part of the KEYS short film for the album which will release next week.

KEYS offers a dual, one-of-a-kind sonic experience – the Originals version contains all new songs that are quintessentially Alicia, reminiscent of the groundbreaking soundscape that everyone has come to know and love since her debut.  The Unlocked version heightens the listening experience as Alicia samples her KEYS originals with the help of GRAMMY® Award winning producer Mike WiLL Made-It for a fresh irresistible vibe.

Arriving on the heels of Alicia receiving two Grammy nominations for Song of the Year for “A Beautiful Noise” feat. Brandi Carlile and Best Immersive Audio Album for ALICIA,  Alicia says about her new album KEYS: “This is my favorite project yet! It’s my lane and I’m driving in it. I love both sides – it’s like a Saturday and Sunday. You’re going to love this music!”

The 26-track double album features guest appearances from Khalid & Lucky Daye on “Come For Me” (Unlocked), Lil Wayne on “Nat King Cole” (Unlocked), Brandi Carlile on “Paper Flowers” (Originals), Pusha T on “Plentiful” (Originals) and Swae Lee on “LALA” (Unlocked). KEYS also features “Best of Me,” the second single released in October as both Originals and Unlocked versions. The single received a warm welcome, with the New York Times proclaiming, “The promises of loyalty, honesty and absolute devotion are from Alicia Keys as she channels Sade’s utterly self-sacrificing love.” See full tracklist below.

Today, Alicia will take center stage at the Expo 2020 Dubai UAE to perform in their Infinite Nights series. This global livestream will broadcast live from Al Wasl Plaza and will feature Alicia performing a bespoke show under Al Wasl dome, the world’s largest 360-degree projection surface. Celebrating 20 years of outstanding musical success, Alicia will perform a combination of her biggest anthems as well as songs from her new album KEYS.

Prior to today’s release of KEYS, Alicia welcomed fans inside her world via the YouTube Originals four-part documentary series, “Noted: Alicia Keys The Untold Stories,” where she shared her journey from vulnerable young star, to self-empowered woman, musician and mother. View the trailer here
