Renowned producer Alesso and pop icon Katy Perry come together in collaboration to release When I’m Gone. When I’m Gone released on December 29, 2021, and the highly anticipated official music video is set to release on January 10, 2022. Listen to When I’m Gone HERE.
“When it comes to my music videos, we all know I like to push the boundaries and myself and create unique opportunities for my fans to see them. ESPN and especially College GameDay hold a special place in my heart, so partnering with Alesso to become the first artists to ever debut a global music video within a live event on ESPN made for a perfect and natural pairing,” says Katy Perry.
Alesso, too, chimed in on the song and music video, stating, “”I’m so thrilled that When I’m Gone is finally out. We’ve been waiting the whole year to share it with all of you. I’m honored to collaborate with Katy on such an amazing dance record and with ESPN to become the first artists to premiere our music video at halftime of the College Football Playoff National Championship. I loved working with her and think this song and video came out super special.”
When I’m Gone showcases a mix of high-tech beats paired with heart wrenching lyrics sung by Katy. In the chorus, Katy sings out to a past lover, and assures them that she won’t be that easy to move on from. “I’m never really gone, you think you’re movin’ on, but it won’t be for long, you’ll see.” The technical hit in combination with high-drama lyrics produces a match made in heaven between Katy and Alesso.
The premiere of When I’m Gone tops off a groundbreaking year for the DJ and dance music producer Alesso. Alesso recently paired with OneOf, a green NFT platform, releasing his debut NFT collection Cosmic Genesis. More accomplishments of Alesso include Chasing Stars (with Marshmello feat.
