American RnB and Soulful singer Alicia Keys, drops a brand new single titled “When You Were Gone.”
From the moment her acclaimed debut album Songs In A Minor dropped, Alicia Keys had solidified herself as a bonafide talent. Her soulful voice and vulnerable songwriting quickly catapulted to the forefront of the mainstream.
Keys specified that the As I Am era song was the product of her life-changing trip to Egypt, which is no doubt reflected in the musical direction:
“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.”
