Fresh Music: Alicia Keys - "New Day" / by

Alicia Keys has been in and out of the studio for the past few years laying down tracks for her upcoming album. It's the follow up to her 2009 effort "The Element of Freedom". Fans have been waiting for a long long time to hear something fresh from the singer since she gave birth to her baby Egypt and married Swizz Beats.

The wait appears to be over as the singer dropped a fresh track today to hold her fans over as she prepares her new album. The track is called "New Day" and was produced by Swizz Beats. The uptempo, heavy drum banger beats very hard and the chorus is catchy. Listen in after the break.

This was pretty good. With the leak of a fresh track, that simply means more has been recorded and awaits to pierce my ear canal. I love Alicia's music. This funky track fits her perfectly. She's one of the few that isn't afraid to dip her feet into deeper waters. She experiments with different sounds and they all work fine for her. I wish others would learn how. What do you think about the track?
