- Alicia Keys Premieres Unreleased Song “When You Were Gone” on SoundCloud
- For American singer-songwriter Alicia Keys, this year is to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the release of her third studio album “As I Am”.
Yesterday, she shared a unreleased song "When You Were Gone" from “As I Am” via SoundCloud.
She described about the song;
“This is one of the very first songs I came back from Egypt and wrote. Maybe it was the second song, the first one had a whole Egyptian vibe, I’ll play that for you one day too. But this one really started to create the sound that ‘As I Am’ has. We were experimenting with a lot of keyboards and sounds and styles of recording, and we were all about breaking boundaries and writing things in new ways.”
- “As I Am” was released in 2007, taking place at various recording studios during 2005 to 2007. The album featured guest appearance from John Mayer on "Lesson Learned".
"As I Am" became her fourth consecutive number-one album on the Billboard 200 and sold over five million copies worldwide.
