On Monday, Keys announced in a Twitter promo that Alicia would officially drop this Friday, September 18th.
Keys was scheduled to release her latest studio album, Alicia, on March 20th of this year. But like many artists, she chose to delay the album — and its tour, originally scheduled to kick off in June — because of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. She initially picked a May 15th release date, then decided to delay the album indefinitely.
