Alicia Keys is finally ready to release her seventh studio album, ALICIA, this Friday. 

On Monday, the multi-Grammy winning artist shared the exciting news in a colorful video, which features Alicia in a bright pink blouse, followed by a number of tweets from fans all wondering, “Where is Alicia’s new album?” 

“Save the date 09.18.20,” she wrote on Instagram. 

Alicia has delayed this album for months due to the coronavirus pandemic and other recent happenings. In exchange, she dropped a slew of singles, including 2019’s “Show Me Love” and “Time Machine.” She opened 2020 with “Underdog,” followed by “Good Job,” her protest anthem “Perfect Way To Die,” and “So Done” with Khalid.

Keys performed her latest single, “Love Looks Better” during last week’s NFL season kickoff performance. In another post, she announced her upcoming performance through American Express’s UNSTAGED series later this week. 

“You heard the news!! I’m performing the music from ALICIA and other favs in a visual, sonic, and emotional wonderland that @americanexpress helped me bring to life!!” she wrote. “One night only!! I can’t wait to rock with you. I’ve missed you so much! Will you be there?”
