In case you didn’t hear, Alicia Keys is back with a new album. We love us some Alicia but that last single was horrendous to say the least, don’t you think? The divette said: “Hey… I’m in the studio right now working away on my new album and I am SO excited!!! I’m ignited!!! I’m like a match to a flame! I’ve had the title of this album in my mind for a long time….It’s been hard to hold it back and now I’m not holding it back anymore! It is called (CLICK BELOW)!!! And that’s exactly how I feel!!! You’ll be learning more about it soon… but let me just say before making this record, in some ways I felt like a lion locked in a cage…I felt like a girl misunderstood that no one really knew, I felt like it was time to stop making excuses for any part of my life that I wanted to change. Once I made that choice I became a (CLICK BELOW), the lion broke free!!”

Anna Haas, the fiery and theatrical singer / songwriter / entertainer extraordinaire, sizzles with the physical release of her debut album “Crazy Is” due to hit the streets on September 18, 2012. With red-hot moxie to match her crimson tresses, Anna Haas is a triple threat whose dramatic appeal scintillates on her debut album through unabashed lyrics and electrifying vocals.
“Crazy Is” is a timeless yet modern tapestry of stories and musings blending lyrical sarcasm, intelligent metaphor and absolute vulnerability. The songs shift in subject matter from a secret affair and tragic loss to the use of an illegal substance and the imagined loneliness of Marilyn Monroe. Crazy Is is a thrilling mix of the cities and artists that inspire Haas, and her signature, expressive voice is the crux that a legion of instrumentation swarms around: heavy, soulful piano, ripping guitar solos, ambient synthesizers, bluesy pedal steel, funky horns, and a symphony of strings.
The person who collaborated with Mariah on “Hero” and many other classics is back! Yesterday, Isabella Afanasieff, daughter of Walter Afanasieff, shared a little secret on Twitter: “A little bird told me my dad’s flying to NY to work with her next month. It’s a secret though. Shhhhh. I think you can spill the news. I’m too excited. My father is finally going to be working with her again after 16 years.”
Not everyone believed her, so she said: “I heard it from my father. Sorry you don’t believe things. Who are you by the way? Maybe next time you want to accuse someone of lying, you should get your facts straight. And not accuse Walter Afanasieff’s kid. Just curious, who told you it’s not happening? Because I was with my dad and Randy Jackson when they were talking. Hopefully they can spark the flame that ignited that fire 20 years ago once again.”
When a fan asked if Isabella shouldn’t keep this a secret, she answered: “I was told it was ok by my dad. I did ask before I opened my mouth. But thanks for your concern. They start working mid July. To all the haters and non believers. Do you think it was easy growing up with a dad in the music industry? It wasn’t. I never saw him.”
