AK Heading Down Under

Monday, July 30th, 2007

Alicia Keys will visit Australia for a whirlwind promotional tour.

It has been confirmed (by those in the know at her record company) that Keys will be in Sydney for a couple of days to promote songs from her new album As I Am.

Keys, who has been working on new tracks with artists ranging from Pharrell Williams to John Mayer, is expected to perform at a VIP invitation-only showcase organised by Sony BMG.

But fans may have the chance to cheer her on, during the appearance in Sydney. Keys is also expected to perform live on a handful of television shows as part of her promotional duties in Australia.

Alicia ‘Dying’ To Collaborate with The White Stripes

Thursday, July 26th, 2007

According to NME.com, Alicia Keys is “dying to work” with Detroit-bred rockers Jack and Meg White. “Me and the White Stripes are going to do something crazy,” Keys said. “We tried to work something out for this record (her third studio LP due this fall), but the timing got a little crazy and it didn’t come off. I know we can do something next time around.”

While you imagine the mash-up of Alicia Keys’ waterfall piano loops and the White Stripes’ bayou guitar shreds, add another hard hitting rock act to Keys’ to-do-list: Queens of the Stone Age. “I’m dying to work with Queens of the Stone Age, too,” Keys said. “Both bands have a very simple approach to music, but it has a soul to it that I totally get. If we did something together, it would be incredible.”

Alicia’s Surprise Performance in London

Thursday, July 26th, 2007

Alicia Keys is readying her third record since the 2002 outstanding Songs In A Minor debut. The album, which sold about 400 million, was one of the biggest debuts by a new artist. A year later The Diary Of Alicia Keys saw an album that was critically and commercially well received. So, here we are in 2007 and AK is back with As I Am, a record that sees the 25 year-old collaborate with long-term partner Kerry ‘Krucial’ Keys, John Mayer and renowned songwriter Linda Perry. Ahead of the album’s October November release, Miss Keys flew into London last night for an album playback and surprise performance at Portman Square’s Home House.

Previewing five new tracks, Alicia shared her excitement with the gathered press, before jumping on the old Joanna and playing the hell out of her new tunes. “Before, I felt the need to prove myself, being young and being a woman. This time I wanted to be free,” she said of new tracks like Superwoman, Thing About Love and Teenage Love Affair. “I went into the studio with no idea what would happen. That created the best music I’ve written in my whole life so far.”

After a ‘rollercoaster’ year, Alicia admitted this album ended up being somewhat of a lifesaver. “If I could tell you about this past year, we’d be here all night,” she laughed. “Trust me, I needed this music more than it needed me. But all that led me to this. I feel it in my bones that this music, this time, it’s all the right path.”

Monday, July 23rd, 2007

Alicia Keys, The Nanny DiariesWhen it comes financial success at the box office, you have to strike gold on opening weekend because with from then on the numbers go down.

The young nanny is aptly named Nan and will be the role Scarlett will be in charge or occupying as she juggles the household’s marital woes, her classes, a romance and a spoiled kid. Keys plays her best friend, Lynette.

John Talks Alicia

Friday, July 20th, 2007

John Mayer, who has worked with Alicia on her upcoming album As I Am, has made a post about their collaboration on his official blog:

Alicia and I finally found the time to finish writing a track for her upcoming album… I have never had a better time collaborating in the studio. The song’s called “Lesson Learned” and I can’t wait for the world to hear it.

This is probably about as obvious as telling you the sky is blue, but Alicia is the most authentic artist of our generation… She’s strong where she needs to be…Not just strong as a woman (there are many strong women out there) but strong as an artist (there are few, regardless of gender). She has the vision DOWN and doesn’t waste time getting there. I collect stickers.
