Alicia Keys wants you to feel free of boundaries on her forthcoming album The Element of Freedom.

The co-star of Jay-Z’s current single, “Empire State of Mind,” says her fourth album has a “feeling theme.”

“The music is really strong, and the drums are really aggressive, but my voice is vulnerable and delicate,” Keys said in a statement.

Keys goes on to say the album is focused on “eliminating all of the boundaries and all the limitations, so that you can feel your freedom and express your freedom in every way you possibly can, and that’s what I did with this album.”

The Element of Freedom is led by Keys’ recently released single “Doesn’t Mean Anything,” which currently sits at no.16 on the Billboard R&B/Hip Hop Songs chart.

The Element of Freedom is slated for release December 1.
