Alicia Keys is back with a new album and tour.
The R&B songstress announced her new album’s release date on her Instagram account. She posted a picture of the album art and captioned the post, “#ALICIA The Album 3/20.”
Not only will Alicia give her fans new music, she will also be hitting the road for a world tour. This will be her first tour in seven years. “Alicia The World Tour” will hit the stages in Europe and North America. The tour kicks off June 5 in Dublin, Ireland and ends September 22 in Miami, Florida. Tickets for the tour go on sale 10 am next Monday (Jan. 27). Pre-sale tickets for American Express card holders will be available from 10 am Wednesday (Jan. 22) to 10 pm Sunday (Jan. 26).
The album and tour announcement comes just days before she is set to host this Sunday’s (Jan. 26) Grammy Awards for the second consecutive year. Last year, Keys became the first woman to host the Grammys since Queen Latifah did in 2005, according to CNN.
“At first, I did think last year was a one-time thing, but when the opportunity came back around, there was no question about returning as host,” Keys tells Billboard. “Last year was such a powerful experience for me. Not only did I feel the love in the room, but I felt it from around the world and it confirmed the healing and unifying power of music.”
The 15-time Grammy award winner recently released another single from the upcoming album called “Underdog.” The video for the song has already garnered over five million YouTube views. Keys recently earned her 11th No. 1 on the Billboard Adult R&B Songs AirPlay chart with her single “Show Me Love.”
