R+B beauty Alicia Keys fears her fans will desert her when they hear her forthcoming album - because it's completely different from her previous musical offerings.

The FALLIN' star has developed a radical new style for her latest as-yet-untitled disc, but she's anxious her new sound will alienate her fanbase.

She says, "I'm also gearing up to do an unplugged album, which is going to be very exciting. I love the opportunity to strip my music down to its essence and then create new songs around that.

"I don't know what to tell you. Because that's the way music is with me, it just flows how it's supposed to. This next album is going to be so out there that it needs time to develop.

"It's definitely going to be a new style for me, still based in my heart and soul. It will still feel like me, but I'm definitely going to be expanding in a lot of ways I just hope my fans don't hate my new sound."
