CA – Alicia Keys Signing

000_alicia-keysPress Release:

Meet Alicia Keys and get her new album, “Here,” signed at Amoeba Hollywood on Friday, November 11th at 2pm! Purchase “Here” in-store only at Amoeba Hollywood starting Friday, 11/4 to receive a wristband for the signing. Space is limited.

Limit 2 CDs/wristbands per person. In-store purchases only. Please note, there will be no posed photos at the signing table.

Line to attend signing will form on Ivar side of Amoeba at 1 PM on 11/11.

Alicia Keys is a 15-time Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter/producer, an accomplished actress, a New York Times best-selling author, an entrepreneur, and a powerful force in the world of activism. This fall Alicia joined NBC’s The Voice for its 11th season, alongside Miley Cyrus, Adam Levine, and Blake Shelton—the 1st time the show has had two female judges at once.

Alicia Keys is releasing her new highly-anticipated sixth studio album, “Here,” November 4th on RCA Records. From the human condition to global politics, Here offers a keen glimpse of everything that matters most to Keys. Urgent, intimate and musically daring, “Here” is Keys’ truth laid bare: each track a confession; every melody a prayer.

The majority of the album’s production credits belong to a creative force Keys calls the ILLuminaries, comprised of herself; songwriter/producer Mark Batson; rapper/producer Swizz Beatz; and long-time Keys songwriting collaborator Harold Lilly. With this album, Keys made a list of things she wanted to talk about, themes she wanted to explore. The result is “Here” speaking to Alicia’s roots in NYC and hip-hop culture. The music on the album blends her perspective of the raw humanity of the world and who she is today as a woman and artist.

“On this album, I’ve arrived Here,” Keys says. “A place where I’m willing to truthfully look at myself in the mirror and to also see the reality of who we have become in this world. The good, the ugly, the shadows and the light. I’ve come to realize that in order for us to grow and to understand and accept each other we have to recognize the complexity of ourselves. We have to be able to talk about it and meet each other where we are, Here.”
