Alicia Keys wrote in her latest blog entry that she will pull the track 'Noone' as the first single off 'As I Am', now due November 6. This would be the single that will determine her mild transition to rock-funk-driven vibe that she described previously.
On the new song, Keys promises or rather hopes that "It's a bit unexpected and something that completely surrounds you, engulfs you and sweeps you away. I hope it makes you feel good and strong and passionate and makes you scream the words at the top of your lungs. I hope it does things to you!!!!"
She is also equally excited on nearing the date of her album's release. "Honestly, I cant wait for you to hear everything!! Each song is so different from the rest! You will NEVER have a chance to get tired. But as diverse as it all is, it still has the true representation and foundation of who I am, AS I AM now!"
Keys is scheduled to appear on MTV's TRL on Thursday, August 23 to talk about her new movie 'The Nanny Diaries' and new album 'As I Am'. She recently hinted that a secret musical film role, most likely a biopic, may come up on the way. "There is one in my head but I can't tell you," she said. "It's this close to being solidified. If ever I've dreamed about something, it's this (role). It happens to be a mixture of both worlds. She is an entertainer."
