NEW YORK, N.Y. - Alicia Keys, who often releases albums in November and December, says she is preparing for another delivery at the end of the year: her second baby.

"December album? Well, I know one thing. I'm having a December baby," the singer said with a laugh in an interview Tuesday.

The Grammy winner says she and husband, producer-rapper Swizz Beatz, know the sex of the baby, but that she's "not sharing."

Their son, Egypt, turns 4 next month. And if baby No. 2 is anything like their first child, music will be a major part of its life.

"He's a little music fanatic. He has all this rhythm. He loves to dance. He can play drums. He can beatbox," Keys said at an event to launch her new Givenchy perfume, Dahlia Divin, at the Macy's flagship store in Manhattan. "I think that you do see how just the influence of music and perhaps it is in the DNA, and perhaps it is a part of the magic of what's inside of the parents that it's coming through him."

Keys' last album was 2012's "Girl on Fire," which won a Grammy this year for best R&B album. She was coy about when she will release her next album, which includes production work by Pharrell. Keys will appear as a mentor for Pharrell's team on NBC's "The Voice," which premieres Monday.

"What I know for a fact is it's the best music I've ever done in my life yet and it's really exciting to be able to have this kind of growth, this type of opportunity," she said. "The music's actually pretty much done already and so you'll be hearing some of it soon."
