Today, Grammy Award-nominated artist Alesso & dark-pop artist/songwriter Charlotte Lawrence share their new single THE END via 10:22pm/Astralwerks. The euphoric yet emotionally raw track was co-written by Alesso, Lawrence, Ali Tamposi and Andrew Watt. THE END matches Alesso’s magnetic and masterful production with a poignant vocal performance from Lawrence. Listen HERE, and watch the performance video HERE.
Equally parts heavy-hearted and effervescent, THE END centers on Alesso’s immaculate sound design, revealing his undeniable pop sensibilities and gift for crafting addictive beats. The song’s bright textures build a brilliant tension with its narrative a detailed story of a toxic romance, beautifully captured in Lawrenceߣs dreamy vocals and gut-punching lyrics (e.g., “Never held my hand so you donߣt have to let it go”).
THE END follows Alesso’s powerfully uplifting single Midnight (feat. Liam Payne), an April release accompanied by a performance video from the duo. In addition to earning praise from Rolling Stone, E!, and People, the track was lauded by the likes of MTV (who called it “the kind of mid-tempo, easy jam that lends itself nicely to big vistas”) and Billboard (who hailed it as “a soaring anthem built on Alesso’s grand-scale production”).
