She also said she’s raring to go. “I am hungry, I am an animal right now. I am just ready to be set free in a whole other way. When it comes to sharing this music with you, I am like a caged animal that’s dying to escape.”

“I’ve come to this place that the album is about to be ready and I feel just so crazy excited. It’s like I’m a different person. I’m a new person. Everything is new, from being married and having a baby,” she said.

“I’ve become so much more intelligent and I survey the landscape more and try to come up with what’s the best thing for me, what’s the best thing for [son] Egypt, what’s the best thing for our family,” she added.

“I’ve gone through so much growth and so much realisation and realising that in life different things come and different things change. I’ve learned that I have to trust myself and trust my instincts. I had to and I have to be braver than I’ve ever had to be before.”

The singer has been working for eight months on her follow-up to 2009’s The Element of Freedom.

“Beyond excited for tomorrow… I have a surprise for you!!! It’s gonna be a #AKNewDay.” she Tweeted.

Well, tomorrow is here; check out her song above.
