Consequence Podcast Network is kicking off 2020 with the release of their latest episode of This Must Be The Gig featuring the incomparable Alicia Keys. The 15-time GRAMMY Award winning music icon spoke with host Lior Phillips about her upcoming year. She's releasing her seventh studio album, ALICIA, her first album in four years; her book More Myself is due in a few months; and she'll be hosting the GRAMMY AWARDS for the second consecutive year.
"I definitely have been on a personal mission to connect with the different sides of myself," Keys shares in the exclusive interview. "There are so many pieces that make us who we are, and the rage and the anger are just as important as the resolution and the solution. The crazy is just as important as the rational. All of these parts are inside of us, and we deserve to be able to understand them and get to know them better."
As an exclusive sneak peek, Keys spoke to Consequence of Sound to discuss both ALICIA and themes of empowerment, self-expression, and acceptance. She also stressed the importance of communing with every side of your self, the power of connection, the value of meditation, absolving guilt in the creative process, and the true meaning of being on your bulls.
