3 Doors Down: The Story Behind the ‘When I’m Gone’ Video – Exclusive Premiere

3 Doors Down
Mary Ouellette,

3 Doors Down are ramping up to the Nov. 19 release of their upcoming ‘Greatest Hits‘ collection, and they’ve taken the time to reflect on the songs and videos that got them where they are today with a series of video vignettes. Loudwire is proud to bring you the vignette explaining the story behind the videos for the hit single, ‘When I’m Gone.’

In the vignette, seen below, singer Brad Arnold shares how there were actually two clips for ‘When I’m Gone.’ Most fans are familiar with the one shot during their touring, where they played for military audiences, but the vocalist goes more in depth about a gothic style promo they shot in the South with a darker tone to it. The video ended up being a rather demanding shoot for the band.

‘When I’m Gone’ is just one of the hit singles on the ‘Greatest Hits’ compilation. Other standouts like ‘Kryptonite,’ ‘Duck and Run,’ ‘Here Without You,’ and ‘It’s Not My Time,’ turn up, as do three new songs — ‘One Light,’ ‘There’s a Life,’ and ‘Goodbyes.’

Republic Records will release the disc Nov. 19, and pre-orders are currently being taken here. The band will celebrate two days earlier (Nov. 17) with the ninth annual ‘The Better Life‘ foundation concert at the Horseshoe Casino in Tunica, Mississippi. The benefit serves as the opening night of the band’s co-headlining tour with Daughtry and opening act P.O.D.
