Alicia Keys Shares New Song "Hallelujah" & "Let Me In" Movie Trailer

  /  06.17.2016

Last month, Alicia Keys debuted “Hallelujah,” the second song off her still-untitled upcoming album, while performing on Saturday Night Live, but now we’ve got its official audio.

The languid, neo-gospel track sees Keys punctuating her words with sparse piano chords before handclaps and dramatic strings close out the tune. It’s all about fear, forgiveness and faith, and there’s also a pace-keeping drum that’d perfectly soundtrack a forward march.

The song sounds fit for the slow walk to a battlefield, which makes all the more sense when you realize it backs Let Me In, Keys’ new film (of which she serves as star and executive producer) that reimagines the refugee crisis on America’s shores.

Let Me In premieres online worldwide on June 20, World Refugee Day.
