Alicia Keys has been relatively mum on the details of her upcoming album, but on Thursday, the multi-platinum Grammy winner wanted to tease fans with what she’s been up to.

“I got something fresh for you, something fresh for the summer. I’m feeling good, and I’m thinking, 'Let me be the one to kinda just play you a little bit,' ” she said in a YouTube message to her fans before playing just a quick snippet of a track.

Keys couldn’t hold onto the track much longer and shortly after the teaser, the singer tweeted the full track, “New Day.”

She didn’t say whether the drum-heavy single was the lead of her as-yet-untitled album, but with husband Swizz Beatz’s trademark club beats pushing Keys’ simple and catchy hooks, “New Day” sounds crafted for summer dance-offs.

Keys’ follow-up to her last album, 2009's “The Element of Freedom,” is due later this year.
