Alicia Keys releases new song 'In Common'

The song is her first release in four years

RCA/Paola Kudacki

Alicia Keys released her first song in four years on Wednesday. Titled “In Common,” the track is the first off her forthcoming sixth studio album, out late this summer.

Produced by Illangelo and written by Keys, Illangelo, Tayla Parks, and Billy Walsh, the track is hazy and club-ready, flecked by lyrics like, “Who wants to love somebody like me?”

“We all have our issues, our challenges,” Keys said in a statement. “We are all kind of messed up and that’s all right. In fact, that’s what helps us understand each other. To me, that is what’s so beautiful.”

She’ll perform the track for the first time live on Saturday Night Live on May 7, and she’ll also bring “In Common” to Milan on May 28 to perform at the UEFA Champions League Final.
