Alicia Keys who broke through with that ‘Falling’ number of hers, will release soon her latest offering, entitled ‘How Come You Don’t Call Me’ from her acclaimed ‘Songs in A Minor’. By the way, it’s a reinterpretation of Prince’s 1982 B-side ‘How Come U Don’t Call Me Anymore?’
The clip was filmed last weekend in Los Angeles, opens with Alicia singing around the house, but the setting, and music, soon change. “The interesting part is that halfway through the song she actually switches to singing the song live,” explained Alicia’s J Records spokesperson. “So you have the studio version and the live version as the scene changes. Pretty hot, if I do say so myself.”
Along with the innovative use of music, the video also marks a historic moment for the ‘A Woman’s Worth’ singer. It’s going to be the first time she will reveal her hair without braids.
Before launching a two-month tour July 2 in Milwaukee Alicia Keys will work on material for her next album due by the end of the year or in early 2003.
