It has officially been a decade since the release of Alicia Key's classic album "As I Am," and to celebrate, the iconic singer blesses fans with a new [unreleased] record titled "When You Were Gone."
“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.” -Alicia Keys
