According to Alicia, this album is about being open. “I’m not holding back anymore. I have felt like a lion locked in a cage. I felt like a girl misunderstood that no one really knew. I felt like it was time to stop making excuses for any part of my life that I wanted to change. Once I made that choice I became a Girl on Fire, the lion broke free.”
Alicia’s first single “New Day” was released on June 28th and will be performed by the singer for the first time live at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards.
As for that cover shot above, no doubt Alicia is trying to make a statement with her new sexy image.
