Alicia Keys reimagines iconic hit for ‘Bridgerton’ prequel
April 12, 2023 -LONDON (AP) — At the famous Abbey Road Studios in London to present a special selection of songs recorded in spatial audio for Apple Music, Alicia Keys revealed another upcoming project: a reimagining of an iconic hit for Netflix’s upcoming “Bridgerton” prequel.
“I’m doing a brand-new reimagined version of ‘If I Ain’t Got You’ with a 90-piece orchestra with women of color and it is incredible,” Keys told The Associated Press on Tuesday.
The song from 2003′s “The Diary of Alicia Keys” will feature in “Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story,” which premieres May 4, and Keys is shooting the accompanying video in London this week. The new version will also be out on spatial, “if you can imagine 90 pieces swirling around you” Keys said.
Spatial audio allows the listener to experience a theater-like surround sound; Keys took the original raw files from her songs to re-record and remix. She will release eight spatial audio albums April 28 on Apple Music.
