Try Sleeping with a Broken Heart (4:09)

Cover of The Element of Freedom

From The Element of Freedom and 20 other releases

“Try Sleeping with a Broken Heart” is a song performed by American recording artist Alicia Keys. It was released as the second single (third in the UK) from her fourth studio album, The Element of Freedom (2009). The ballad has been hailed by many music critics as the best track from the album.

Keys told The Sun newspaper : “I just love that song. I’m excited about that song as I just love the way it’s pushing things forward. It’s a great representation of where I am now. I can play it with tons of music behind me or I can play it with just the piano. Either way it touches, you get it. I’m so very excited by that record.” (Source Try Sleeping With a Broken Heart Songfacts).

Follow up to the hugely successful hit ‘Empire State of Mind (Part II) Broken Down’, ‘Try Sleeping With A Broken Heart’ was another chart success for Ms Keys – the heartfelt ballad scored the talented songstress a top fifteen hit in May 2010.
