Alicia Keys has begun recording her first original LP since 2009’s ‘Element Of Freedom’. When it’s released, whenever that may be, it’ll bear the title ‘Girl On Fire’.

Writing via a statement on her official website, she says: “I’m in the studio right now working away on my new album and I am SO excited! I’m ignited! I’m like a match to a flame!”

She continues: “But let me just say before making this record, in some ways I felt like a lion locked in a cage… I felt like a girl misunderstood that no one really knew, I felt like it was time to stop making excuses for any part of my life that I wanted to change. Once I made that choice I became a ‘Girl On Fire’, the lion broke free!”

Apparently, we’ll be “learning more about it soon”, but for now we have fire, lions, and mixed metaphors. Can’t wait!
