Alicia Keys has announced that she will be dropping a new album very soon and shared the artwork for the project.

The “Try Sleeping with a Broken Heart” hitmaker took to Instagram to reveal that her seventh studio album, ALICIA, will be released worldwide on March 20.

For the artwork attached, Keys appears four times. She sported a simple look and didn’t opt for any visible items of clothing or accessories. The singer has been vocal about not wearing makeup in recent years and stunned her followers with a fresh face. The “Empire State of Mind (Part II) Broken Down” songstress boasted her natural beauty by pulling back her braided hair off her face, wearing her locks in a bun.

In the top, left-hand corner of the cover, she was photographed posing in front of an orange backdrop, looking directly at the camera. Keys parted her lips and showcased her beautiful collarbones.

In the top, right-hand corner, she displayed her profile, posing to her right. The “You Don’t Know My Name” chart-topper turned away from the camera and showed off the details of her braided hair. In the bottom left shot, Keys looked to her left and flaunted her profile again from the opposite side. Both photos had different shades of purple behind her.

In the bottom right corner, she was pictured from behind, which captured her upper back, hair, ears, and shoulders in front of a green backdrop.

The illusion for the artwork is that Keys has been photographed from four different sides and angles.
