12 x Grammy Award winner, Alicia keys has announced her brand new single ‘Try Sleeping With A Broken Heart’ will be released on May 24th.
Following the huge hits ‘Doesn’t Mean Anything’ and ‘Empire State Of Mind Part II’, ‘Try Sleeping with A Broken Heart’ is sure to be yet another smash for Alicia. ‘Empire State Of Mind Part II’ was her biggest single in the UK ever, and ‘The Element Of Freedom’ is Alicia’s first album to reach number 1 in the UK and has sold over 500,000 copies here already.
Alicia describes ‘The Element Of Freedom’ as a dichotomy of strength and vulnerability: “The music is really strong, and the drums are really aggressive, but my voice is vulnerable and delicate,” states Keys.
Since Alicia first exploded onto the music scene she has proved that she is more than talented - she is gifted. Alicia keys is now as much of a global superstar as she is a musician’s musician. She is not only a singer, songwriter, musician and producer, but also a credible actor. Unlike many figures in the public eye who appear to be politically aware and engaged, Alicia has proved that she doesn’t just talk, she acts, her work with Keep a Child Alive is testimony to this.
Alicia Keys will be touring the UK in May including two dates at the O2 arena.
