The 'Girl On Fire' singer says she can't wait for fans to hear her record and is excited for the next single release.

Alicia Keys has confessed that working with Emeli Sande on her new album 'Girl On Fire' was "instant magic". 

The US star told Capital FM that she teamed up with the 'Next To Me' singer on a trio of songs and praised how well the pair got on in the studio – admitting it doesn't always happen. 

"I have to say, myself and Emeli Sande – when we met and we really began to write together, it was instant magic and that doesn't happen all the time," she confessed. "There's about three songs on my album that we did together and they are, all three, unbelievably special." 

The 'Empire State Of Mind' singer added that she can't wait for fans to hear the whole album and is looking forward to releasing 'Brand New Me' as her next single. 

"'Brand New Me' is one of my favourites, it's going to be my second single and to me it's like my autobiography," she revealed. "It says everything about everywhere that I've come and who I am now." 

She continued: "It's about being completely happy with finding yourself." 

As well as Emeli, Alicia has also worked with the likes of Frank Ocean and Bruno Mars on her album. 

Meanwhile, rapper Jay-Z was also full of praise for Emeli recently when he said he predicted the 'Daddy' singer to have huge success in the US and teased a potential collaboration with Beyonce.
