The R&B singer and pianist revealed that the new record will be titled Girl on Fire on her official website earlier today.
Keys expressed her enthusiasm about the new record, her first since 2009's The Element of Freedom.
The 'Empire State of Mind' singer said: "I'm in the studio right now working away on my new album and I am SO excited!!! I'm ignited!!! I'm like a match to a flame! I've had the title of this album in my mind for a long time.
"It's been hard to hold it back and now I'm not holding it back anymore! It is called Girl on Fire!!! And that's exactly how I feel!!!
She continued: "Girl on Fire is about new beginnings, new perspectives and fresh starts... stripping away all the bad energy in your life and taking full control of the reins and how you want to live.
The 31-year-old then signed off the post with the message: "Here's to finding your power! Your FIRE!!"
Keys has previously spoken to journalists about how the new album is a "journey' to discover her own strength and belief in herself.
The singer will also soon be appearing as a guest judge on the new series of America's Next Top Model.
