Alesso × Katy Perry – When I’m Gone

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. James Bay) reaching the top 10 on Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Song Charts, spending 11 weeks at this spot. Alesso is ringing in the 2022 new year while playing two shows in Miami on New Year’s Eve. In one show, Alesso plays with Doja Cat at Fountaine Bleau Poolside, the other at Liv Nightclub.

Katy Perry accumulates 50 billion streams, accompanied by 48 million adjusted album worldwide sales and 135 million tracks. Katy’s unforgettable 2015 Super Bowl performance stands at the highest-rated in the history of the event. A staple in the industry of pop music, Katy boasts 40M+ monthly listeners on Spotify, with numerous accomplishments to her name. Apart from her esteemed music career, Katy continues to use her platform to spread awareness for several philanthropic foundations.

ALESSO – SOMEBODY TO USE

Today marks the premiere of “Somebody To Use,” the exhilarating new single from GRAMMY-nominated producer/dance artist Alesso. “Somebody To Use” comes with a toxic mix ready for the clubs too. Watch the new video HERE.

In a glorious moment of worlds colliding, “Somebody To Use” once again proves Alesso’s incredible talent for merging the massively catchy melodies and raw emotion of pop with the forward-thinking sound design of boundary-pushing dance music. Built on a heavenly backdrop of glistening synth and gorgeously cascading beats, the track surges forward with an unstoppable energy paired with velvety vocals. The result: a full-tilt anthem that invites both total surrender and pure catharsis. Already familiar to fans, Alesso has teased and performed the highly anticipated “Somebody to Use” on his sets for the past two years.

“Somebody To Use” arrives as the follow-up to “Chasing Stars,” Alesso’s collaboration with Marshmello, featuring GRAMMY-nominated singer/songwriter/guitarist James Bay. Soon after premiering in August alongside a beautifully surreal video directed by Jake Jelicich (Dua Lipa, Niall Horan), “Chasing Stars” shot to #10 on the Billboard Hot Dance/Electronic Songs Chart, ultimately spending 11 weeks there. The original track was followed by a VIP mix from Alesso (available HERE) and the breathtakingly intimate ”Chasing Stars (Stripped) [feat. James Bay]” (listen HERE).

Aside from “Chasing Stars” Alesso takes part in the Blade Runner: Black Lotus Soundtrack with Danna Paola on “Rescue Me“ and recently partnered with OneOf – the green NFT platform built for the music community – to release his debut NFT collection “Cosmic Genesis.”

ALESSO × MARSHMELLO × JAMES BAY — CHASING STARS

GRAMMY-nominated producer and dance artist Alesso joins forces with Marshmello featuring GRAMMY nominated singer-songwriter and guitarist James Bay for the invigorate release of “Chasing Stars” – a sublime and soulful new uplifting single that finds each superstar at the top of his game. Out now via 10:22PM/Astralwerks, “Chasing Stars” is accompanied by a wildly imaginative video that succinctly captures the song’s mood of dreamy nostalgia. Listen here and check out the video here.

A beautifully detailed look back at a broken relationship, “Chasing Stars” opens on a poignant, piano-accompanied vocal performance from Bay (who also created the single’s enchanting artwork). From there, Alesso and Marshmello work their undeniable magic, layering in driving beats and folk-infused guitar work before building to a heart-stopping drop. Equal parts bittersweet and euphoric, “Chasing Stars” then transforms into a full-tilt anthem, its chorus lit up in gloriously soaring synth lines that perfectly reflect the track’s no-regrets sentiment.

Directed by Jake Jelicich (Dua Lipa, Niall Horan), the fantastically surreal visual for “Chasing Stars” finds Bay working the counter at a video store and scanning through a stack of VHS tapes. As the video unfolds, he becomes more and more mesmerized by the deeply intimate, home-movie-like scenes onscreen – and by the beguiling woman who appears in each tape – and soon ends up fully transported into those memories. In a particularly clever twist, the video store’s walls are plastered with posters bearing images of Alesso and Marshmello. In addition, a number of the VHS sleeves also feature Alesso and Marshmello, brilliantly stylized in classic B-movie aesthetic.

“Chasing Stars” arrives as the follow-up to PROGRESSO VOL 2, a long-anticipated two-track release that Alesso shared in early June. The second installment in a series that began with 2019’s ALESSO MIXTAPE – PROGRESSO VOLUME 1, the release includes “TOGETHER” (a massively catchy floor-filler) and “AGAIN” (a forward-thinking techno track that also harkens back to rave classics).

About Alesso

A global maverick in the dance world, Alesso has repeatedly proven that his influence transcends boundaries and crosses over into countless genres – to that end, he’s collaborated with such eclectic artists as OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder, Calvin Harris, Tove Lo, Liam Payne, Swedish House Mafia’s, Sebastian Ingrosso, Hailee Steinfeld, Florida Georgia Line, Anitta, and more.

About James Bay

For as much as James Bay upholds traditions of timeless songcraft, the UK singer, songwriter, guitarist, and producer also confidently challenges himself and popular music. He spikes a tried-and-true style with clever lyricism, honest confessions, and instrumental proficiency. On the heels of his platinum- certified 2015 debut Chaos And The Calm, he garnered GRAMMY nods in the categories of Best New Artist, Best Rock Album,and Best Rock Song for the gold-selling single “Hold Back The River.” Meanwhile, “Let It Go” went triple platinum. Nominated for dozens of awards, he took home two BRIT Awards, two Q Awards, and top honors at the Ivor Novello Awards and ECHO Awards.

He also notably duetted with icons such as Alicia Keys on The Voice and Mick Jagger while supporting The Rolling Stones at Twickenham Stadium in London. In addition to selling out shows on four continents, Epiphone honored him with his own limited-edition James Bay Signature “1966” guitar. Following the success of 2018’s Electric Light, he deconstructed his sound to its bare essentials on the Oh My Messy Mind EP a year later hitting nearly 500 million global streams. It yielded the hit “Peer Pressure” feat. Julia Michaels], generating over 300 million global streams, received critical acclaim from Time, Rolling Stone, and Billboard and the next year saw James opening up for “Sheeran on his 2019 record-breaking stadium run.

He also created his own virtual event, James Bay – Live At Shakespeare’s Globe, which was a full concert event livestreamed at the historic venue.

DALLASK × LAUV — “TRY AGAIN”

Today, acclaimed producer/songwriter/artist DallasK unveiled his summery new single, “Try Again,” which features longtime friend and collaborator Lauv on vocals. With a wistful look back and a hopeful eye to the future, the track builds into an infectious, exhilarating plea to rekindle a romance that was perhaps never really over. You can download and stream “Try Again,” which was released today via Astralwerks, HERE. You can watch the lyric video HERE.

“Try Again” continues the collaboration that began when DallasK co-produced and co-wrote Lauv’s 2016 single “Breathe.” DallasK also co-produced and co-wrote “Sad Forever,” a single from Lauv’s 2020 debut album, ~how i’m feeling~, and collaborated on Lauv’s 2020 EP, Without You. The pair co-wrote “Try Again” with Michael Pollack (Lizzo, Zedd, Justin Bieber). In addition to producing, DallasK played all the instruments on the song.

DallasK, who is also known for his work with such artists as Tiësto, Fifth Harmony, BTS, Chromeo and KSHMR, says, “‘Try Again’ is actually the first dance record Lauv and I made together and it was super fun to create a unique record that encompasses both of our styles and influences.”

Lauv added, “Me and Dally made this song a couple years ago and we came back to it during quarantine and now we ready to put ‘er out into the world.”

Like the unforgettable ex in the song, the artists couldn’t resist returning to “Try Again,” a song that dates back to an informal 2016 recording session. Lauv and Michael Pollack joined Dallas at a lake house he’d rented in his hometown of Orlando, FL and there they created over a dozen songs.

“Several months later, Lauv’s artist project started to grow rapidly and he was suddenly on tour with Ed Sheeran and playing all around the world,” recalls DallasK. “We continued to work on his albums but ‘Try Again’ was always a favorite of ours that had gotten seemingly lost in the shuffle.”

After they rediscovered the track last year, Dallas FaceTimed Lauv with an idea for a more dance-focused version. Lauv loved it so much, he immediately re-recorded the vocals.

“Then we finished the record on a trip to Mexico for New Year’s and that’s the version you hear today!” says DallasK.

About DallasK:

Based in Los Angeles, DallasK (Dallas Koehlke) has released a string of acclaimed singles, including “All My Life,” “Self Control,” “I Know” and “Sometimes.” Praising the “relatable story” told on “Sometimes,” Billboard asked, “Does true love ever die? […] ‘Sometimes,’ the ghost of the past never really goes away. That’s the kind of love DallasK, Nicky Romero and XYLO wrote about on their summer heartbreak sing-along.”

DallasK is also known for his collaborations with such artists as Tiësto (“Show Me,” “Your Love”), Hardwell (“Area 51”) and KSHMR (“Burn”). He co-wrote and produced Fifth Harmony’s 5x Platinum single, “Work From Home” feat. Ty Dolla Sign as well as their singles “Down” and “He Like That.” He’s also remixed singles for such artists as Martin Garrix/Bebe Rexha, The Chainsmokers, MGMT, A-Trak/Andrew Wyatt, Skrillex and T.I./Pharrell/Robin Thicke.

Popdust observed, “It’s impossible to escape his influence. From Ariana Grande and Kesha to Lauv, Katy Perry and Fifth Harmony, Koehlke has curated a staggering number of today’s hits, whether behind the scenes or in the production chair.”

About Lauv:

Lauv has quietly and steadily become one of pop’s brightest rising stars. He has released his music completely independently with billions of streams to his name. He has written for some of the biggest stars in the world, performed on late night talk shows, played stadiums opening for Ed Sheeran, and sold out shows in 20+ countries as a headliner. And he did all of this without releasing an album.

That changed in early 2020, with Lauv’s official debut, ~how i’m feeling~. A 21-song tour de force, the project marks a breakthrough, a real moment of arrival, from a young singer/songwriter/producer who Rolling Stone called “Pop’s Up-and-Coming Heartbreak King.” The album released as a Top 20 album in 10 territories, including #9 in UK and #5 in AU, with over 1.5 billion combined streams to date.

Since then, Lauv has released a surprise new EP titled Without You, created during quarantine, and joined forces with rising global pop superstar Conan Gray on the new single “Fake.” Lauv has been open about his own struggles with anxiety and depression and has taken action on the issue with his Blue Boy Foundation, which supports programs that help young people feel more comfortable reaching out for help with mental health.

About Astralwerks:

Established in 1993 in New York City, Astralwerks was the brainchild of Caroline Records staffers who saw an opportunity for a label focused on the nascent electronic and ambient scene. Now based at the historic Capitol Records Tower in Hollywood, Astralwerks has emerged as a modern, artist-first label and the #1 market share leader for dance/electronic music in the U.S. Combining a scalable, independent and global-thinking ethos with the ability to tap into the resources of a major label has enabled Astralwerks to sign such artists as ILLENIUM, Jonas Blue, Alison Wonderland, EDEN, ZHU and Alesso.

Alesso x Charlotte Lawrence – The End

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 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”).
