Alicia Keys is joining the list of R&B stars dropping an album in 2016.
In an Instagram photo of what could possibly serve as the cover art to Keys’ upcoming album, HERE, the singer announced a November 4 release date for the “raw and honest” project.
“My New Album: HERE Out 11/4. My most raw and honest creation yet! Pre-order to receive my new song Blended Family (What You Do For Love) today #LinkInBio,” Alicia Keys wrote in the caption to the photo.
For eager fans, Keys, who is currently a judge on NBC’s “The Voice,” has made the album available for pre-order.
In May, Keys dropped the video for “In Common” from the project and she also just released a single titled “Blended Family (What You Do For Love)” featuring A$AP Rocky.
Swizz Beatz, who married the Harlem songstress in 2010, serves as executive producer on HERE. He too shared news of the album via Instagram.
“New Album titled HERE drops 11/4!!!!! Pre-order link in @aliciakeys bio I’m so honored to have the privilege to EP this masterpiece,” Swizz wrote.
The scheduled November 4 release of HERE comes nearly four years after Keys dropped her last album, Girl On Fire. The album included production from Swizz, who alongside Dr. Dre helped in producing the track, “New Day.”
