Alicia Keys – “Holy War”

Next week, Alicia Keys is coming back with the new album Here, and it’s already yielded the great single “In Common,” as well as new songs like “Back To Life” and the A$AP Rocky collab “Blended Family.” This morning, Keys has shared a new song called “Holy War.” It’s a big, stormy heal-the-world ballad built around an acoustic-guitar figure, and while it’s not as entrancing as Keys’ best songs, it’s a work of real pop-music professionalism. Keys sang the song at her recent Times Square concert, and you can watch that performance and hear the studio version below.

Here is out 11/4 on RCA.
