Alicia Keys unplugs early on MTV Overdrive

(Posted August 31, 2005 by Leah Yoakum)

"MTV Unplugged" will return after a three-year break on September 23 with a performance by Alicia Keys, but fans can watch the entire episode beginning a week earlier on the MTV Overdrive broadband video channel.

Keys' performance was filmed July 14 at the Brooklyn Academy of Music and features new songs. Keys also collaborated with other artists including Common, Mos Def, Damian Marley and Maroon5's Adam Levine.

Viewers watching on MTV Overdrive also can see exclusive footage including an interview with Keys. The sneak preview theme will continue with http://www.MTV.com, which will enable visitors to hear the entire "Alicia Keys Unplugged" album a week before it becomes available in stores October 11 as part of its initiative called "The Leak."


MTV Overdrive has been gaining popularity since its April 25 launch. For example, 4 million streams were delivered in the U.S. during the MTV Music Video Awards on Sunday.


In addition to special programming, MTV Overdrive offers regular on-demand channels of news, performances, interviews and other videos. Viewers also can assemble their own playlists from any program or video offered on MTV Overdrive, allowing them to customize their experience, but retaining the advertising.
