Alicia’s “A Minor” Expansion Has a Track List

leave a comment »

The 10th anniversary reissues of Alicia Keys’ Songs in A Minor now have track lists with some tantalizing unreleased material – but how much you get, as is so often the case, depends on which version you buy.

As previously reported, the singer/songwriter/pianist’s Grammy-winning debut LP is being expanded across several formats for its 10th anniversary. A “deluxe edition” will feature a bonus EP of rare and unreleased songs, including two previously unheard demos. A long-boxed “collector’s edition” will include the album, a bonus disc of 12 songs (the six from the EP and six more unreleased cuts) and a DVD featuring music videos and a newly-filmed documentary on the album. (A newly-edited meld of the “Fallin'” and “A Woman’s Worth” videos – entitled A Harlem Love Story – will be featured as an enhanced feature on the second disc of the deluxe edition. And, for the first time, the original album will also get a commercial release as a double-disc 180-gram vinyl set.

All the sets are out on June 28. Hit the jump for the full track list breakdown!
