Swizz Beats says his wife's next album is "timeless" and "super deep".
When asked on a recent US TV appearance (quoted here) what Alicia was up to, Swizz said that she was "working on a timeless piece" as her follow-up to 2009's 'The Element Of Freedom'.
Since that album Keys has given birth to her first child, an event that's likely to be covered in the record. "The topics that she’s speaking about are super deep and from the heart," said Swizz . "To me what music has been missing."
And Keys' fifth album could be ready soon if Swizz's guff is anything to go by. "It’s showtime,” he exclaimed. "She’s moving faster than people think. She’s tightening the bolts."
