Alicia Keys has teamed up with Sam Romans and Sampha on new music.
“An amazing week in the studio with the legend @aliciakeys and the master @jimmynapes. Big shout out to #Sampha too,” Romans posted on Instagram.
The British musician – real name Samuel Elliot Roman – recently co-wrote Disclosure’s “Jaded” [Island], Melissa Steel’s “You Love Me?” [Atlantic], Mary J. Blige’s “Doubt” [Capitol] and Gorgon City’s “Saving My Life” [Virgin EMI].
Meanwhile, Sampha is known for his collaborative works with Emile Hayne (“A Kiss Goodbye”), SBTRKT (“Hold On”), FKA twigs (“Numbers”), Drake (“Too Much”), Jessie Ware (“Valentine”) and Lil Silva (“On Your Own”).
As mentioned in earlier posts, Keys is expected to release her sixth studio collection later this year through RCA Records.
The follow-up to 2013’s “Girl on Fire” is preceded by current single “28 Thousand Days,” which is now available for download via iTunes.
Among the songwriters and producers reportedly backing Keys on the still-untitled project are Swizz Beatz, Emeli Sande, Pharrell Williams, Jimmy Napes, Sam Dew, Mark Batson, Harold Lilly, Mike Dean, and Sam Smith.
