Alicia Keys went diggin’ through her musical crates to release the full version of her single “Somewhere In The City.”
A clip of the uplifting record was originally featured at the end of her Keep A Child Alive documentary, and first popped up on her website AKVault.com to celebrate her “12 Days of Christmas” giveaways.
The piano-drenched ballad finds the 33-year-old singer-songwriter in a familiar musical space. As her fingers dance across the piano, Keys sings about the harshness of the city as well as the conquering power of love.
While fans will get their musical Alicia Keys fix from the latest record, they’re still going to have wait for a follow up to her to her 2012 Girl on Fire, which will most likely arrive after she gives birth to her second child. Keys and Swizz have not revealed the gender of their new bundle of joy, but did say the baby should be here by New Years.
Until then, spin the record on VIBE.
