NPR has released Alicia Keys’ February performance for their Tiny Desk Concert series, in which she debuts a new song from her upcoming album, ALICIA.
Seated at the piano, Keys kicked off the highly anticipated performance with the single “Show Me Love” (sans featured artist Miguel) before premiering “Gramercy Park.” She then performed another ALICIA cut, “Underdog,” before concluding with her debut chart-topping single “Fallin’,” a request from the NPR crowd.
“It’s really a tiny, tiny desk!” Keys remarked at the top of her performance. “Like it’s crazy, we’re really smooshed back here, and I gotta say, me and the crew—we’re like family. So warm and cozy, and it feels so good to just be in an intimate space and just connect with you.”
Keys’ seventh album ALICIA was slated for release in March. However, the coronavirus pandemic forced the singer to push back its release and supporting tour to an undetermined date later this year. In April, she released the song “Good Job” to thank essential workers on the frontlines of the pandemic.
