Alicia Keys - Zebras & Airplanes

Alicia Keys is in the gifting spirit today as she shares with fans the previously unreleased song “Zebras and Airplanes,” from her Element of Freedom era. The ethereal song, which she recorded five years ago, was inspired by a painting by Chloe Early.

“I had never been overcome to write a song after seeing a painting before, but this one sent me to another place,” wrote Alicia on her website AK Vault. “I felt it! The power, the freedom, the strength to gallop and fly. And I knew right at that moment I would write a song called ‘Zebras and Airplanes’ to describe that kind of love. The whole of you—body and soul—can gallop and fly!”

She also shared a Valentine’s Day wish for her fans. “Love on yourself. Pamper yourself. Cherish yourself. Today and forever,” she said. “I wish you the kind of love that comes from within and spreads all the way out!”
