Keys’ Thoughts About The Song
Taking to her personal website, Keys revealed some interesting facts about “When You Were Gone”. She said:
“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.”
