R&B soul singer releases first single in four years.


Alicia Keys offers up a musical departure from her standard sound.

In Common is a breezy, fresh up-tempo, yet somewhat minimal track, that moves Keys away from the usual piano-heavy R&B balladry she became famous for.

Alicia launched the single through a custom made website offering the Vevo link and a new, bare-faced promotional photo.

The 35-year-old is slated to perform on SNL this week:
