Alicia Keys is back with a brand-new song inspired by the forthcoming film The Color Purple.

On Friday, November 24, the R&B singer delivered her latest tune "Lifeline" via gamma. On the uplifting track, Keys offers to be the "lifeline" to anyone in need. The brand-new track is the first single to come from the official soundtrack for The Color Purple starring Fantasia, Halle Barry and Taraji P. Henson. Along with "Lifeline," you can also expect to hear original tracks inspired by the film from H.E.R., Mary J. Blige, Usher, Megan Thee Stallion, Coco Jones, Missy Elliott, Jennifer Hudson, Keyshia Cole, Jorja Smith, Black Thought, Mary Mary and more.

The song comes one week before the digital re-release of her iconic album The Diary of Alicia Keys. Keys plans to drop The Diary of Alicia Keys 20 via Legacy Records just one day before the 20th anniversary of her second studio LP. The album will include her recent track "Golden Child," which was a previously unreleased song from her personal vault. To celebrate the epic milestone, the New York native will perform the album in its entirety during a show at Webster Hall in her hometown. If you can't make it to the show, you'll be able to livestream it via the Veeps app.

"My special one night only show on December 1st just got even better!!!" Keys wrote in an Instagram post earlier this week. "Celebrate The Diary Of Alicia Keys 20 with ME, live from NYC streaming directly to YOU, wherever you are in the world!!!! Get access now on @Veeps it’s going to be magical ✨💜 I can’t wait to vibe out with u!"
