The New York singer recorded "Old Memories" for her double album Keys
. She split the record into two parts:
1. The "Original" songs that are throwbacks to Alicia Keys' more traditional and melodic material.
2. The "Unlocked" section, where producer Mike WiLL Made-It takes the "Original" tracks and reconfigures them into bigger sounds.
"Old Memories (Unlocked)
" transforms the speakeasy feel of the original track into a '80s dance tune with a lively beat and a pulsing rhythm. London musician Jacob Collier supplies background vocals and plays the piano on the new version.
