Alicia Keys has unveiled the artwork for her new single.

“Hallelujah” marks the second promotional cut from the singer-songwriter-producer’s upcoming sixth album.

“Hallelujah” was co-written by Jimmy Napes, whose resume boasts further works with Sam Smith (“Stay with Me”), Madonna (“Best Night”), Jessie Ware (“Pieces”), Lapsley (“Hurt Me”) and Ellie Goulding (“Heal”).

The Grammy award winning hitmaker – real name James Napier – also contributed to the next releases by Eliza Doolittle, Raye, GRACE, Frances, Liv Dawson, and Karen Harding.

Meanwhile, Keys is scheduled to release her sixth studio collection – featuring current single “In Common” – later this year through RCA Records.

The still-untitled project serves as the follow-up to 2012’s “Girl on Fire,” which debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200 Albums Chart and spawned singles including “New Day” and “Brand New Me.”

Other musicians backing Keys on the new album are Swizz Beatz, Harold Lilly, Pharrell Williams, Emeli Sande, Mark Batson, Sam Dew, Illangelo, Taylor Parks, Billy Walsh, Mike Dean, and Sam Romans.
