Alesso and Katy Perry When I'm Gone via Capitol Records for use by 360 Magazine

Alesso × Katy Perry

Visionary GRAMMY-nominated producer/dance artist Alesso and global pop superstar Katy Perry released a new version of their hit collaboration, ”When I’m Gone.” The high-energy, “When I’m Gone (VIP Mix)”, out now via 10:22PM/Astralwerks/Capitol Records, emphasizes the ecstatic energy of the original, pulling it from the radio airwaves and back toward the dancefloor. Listen HERE.

Through Alesso‘s adrenaline-pumping combination of skyward electronics, stadium-filling synths, and thundering drums, “When I’m Gone (VIP Mix)” adds heightened emotion to Katy Perry’s stirring lyrics about a failed relationship. When I’m gone I’m never really gone,” she sings. “You think you’re moving on / but it won’t be for long, you’ll see.” Though there’s sadness on the song’s surface, ultimately, it’s an anthem of liberation and knowing your worth. There’s a feeling of joy and triumph that this new version’s soaring arrangement only emphasizes.

“When I’m Gone (VIP Mix)” comes on the heels of the duo’s Saturday Night Live performance of “When I’m Gone” which included a mushroom dance troupe. Watch it HERE. Upon its release, “When I’m Gone” went straight to No. 1 on the U.S. Dance Shazam chart, entered the top five of Billboard‘s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart, and placed in the top five on iTunes in the U.S. It has amassed over 90 million combined global streams to date. The song’s music video, directed by Hannah Lux Davis, premiered during halftime of the 2022 College Football Playoff National Championship in January, marking the only time that ESPN has dropped a global music video within a live broadcast across its networks. Watch that music video HERE.

Alesso is set to hit the road next month with a slew of shows. On March 26, he will kick off his residency at TAO Beach Dayclub at the Venetian Resort Las Vegas.

Jack Savoretti x Too Much History

Today, UK singer/songwriter Jack Savoretti debuts a new track titled,  “Too Much History,” along with an accompanying visual.  The song is the second release from his forthcoming album – Europiana – due out June 25 on Capitol Records and available to pre-order now.  “When you have history with someone I think that is a good reason to celebrate, says Savoretti. This is the song to play when you’re celebrating just that.”

“Too Much History” follows Savoretti’s irresistible new single, “Who’s Hurting Who” — a disco-fueled pop track featuring the legendary Nile Rodgers. Watch the video HERE. Co-produced by Rodgers and Mark Ralph (Tove Lo, MARINA), “Who’s Hurting Who” arrives as a gloriously upbeat piece of soul-pop, perfectly showcasing Savoretti’s alluring vocal presence. With its dance-ready grooves, glistening guitar riffs, and lavish string arrangements, the song fully embodies the elegant escapism of Europiana, an album Savoretti describes as “the music of my childhood summers, remade for today.”

The seventh full-length from Savoretti, Europiana serves as the follow-up to his gold-certified album Singing to Strangers: a 2019 release that marked his first #1 on the UK album chart and earned praise from such outlets as The Telegraph (who hailed its “heady love songs mixing lush orchestrations with a tight, electric band”). This time around, Savoretti recorded at the famed Abbey Road Studios with leading producers like Cam Blackwood(London Grammar, Florence + the Machine), approaching the album with more confidence and imagination than ever before. “Singing to Strangers was my first album that wasn’t all about me, which I loved,” Savoretti says. “Europiana pushes that further. There are more characters and bigger concepts. I’m looking out at the world, not inwards.”

Jack Savoretti – Europiana

Jack Savoretti’s seventh album arrives with its own genre. Europiana is both its title and a term coined to capture the spirit of the songs and the sun-soaked influences they absorb. Think Riviera glamour and Italian elegance. Picture golden beaches, endless azure skies and piano bars with punters spilling onto cobbled streets. Grab a rosé – heck, the whole bottle – to spur memories of lunches that last until dusk and heading home with loved ones to dance until dawn.

“When I came up with the concept, some people thought I’d lost the plot,” laughs Jack. “What? You want to invent a new genre? In fact, it already exists – it just isn’t acknowledged.  Europiana isn’t a sound. It’s references and inspirations and the emotions they evoke. It’s the music of my childhood summers, remade for today.”

The sonic seeds of Europiana were sewn with 2019’s sumptuous Singing To Strangers, Jack’s first No.1 album and his third consecutive gold seller. The songs were begun in scorching sunshine last year at Jack’s Oxfordshire home, with doors and windows wide open.

“We were very fortunate with the weather,” says Jack. “My house became a haven for my whole band. The moment the first lockdown lifted, they were all calling me, asking to come hang out in the countryside.  For weeks we literally lived Europiana. They’d arrive and I’d make a big lunch, eaten outside with loads of rosé. Then we’d go inside to write. The sun and fun seeped into the songs. This isn’t an album we could have made in winter.”

Two guests joined in remotely- Nile Rodgers features on the disco-fueled first single ’Who’s Hurting Who,’ an instant classic doused in Riviera life and roller skate parks. John Oates, stranded in Nashville, played guitar and sang backing vocals on the lush “When You’re Lonely.”

Aptly for an album about family and friendship, you’ll also hear Jack’s wife and children sing. The bulk of the album was co-written with members of Jack’s longtime band, the striking strings were arranged by violinist and close friend Phil Granell and soul-pop belter “Calling Me Back To You” is a collaboration with friend and newcomer Gizmo Varillias.

Produced by Cam Blackwood (George Ezra, London Grammar and Singing to Strangers) and recorded late last year at Abbey Road, Europiana is the sound of an artist utterly at ease. Confidence oozes from every song. Risks are regularly taken, but nothing feels forced. Seven albums in, a fired-up, blissed-out Jack has firmly found his own lane.  ”I arrived with a suitcase of 18 songs and we recorded them all as live takes in ten days,” says Jack. “Everyone was so excited to be back at work, to experience the joy of making music again. As cheesy as it sounds, it was an emotional experience.”

Europiana’s romantic lyrics were largely the result of a loved-up lockdown where Jack appreciated time spent with his family.  “My wife and I were like kids again, the 20-year-olds who first fell in love,” he says. “We remembered why we are together and what our lives to now have really been about. Hence, lots of lyrics about love and happiness and not taking each other for granted.” ”I Remember Us,” both the album’s first track and the first song written, bottles that sentiment and opens with Jack’s wife and nine-year-old daughter singing. “I wanted a French/Italian choir sound, scruffy and innocent, more theatre than pop,” says Jack. “You can’t get that with professional singers. My daughter understood straight away because she hears that music at home.”

On the slinky “Secret Lives,” real-life husband and wife trade whispered lines, while beneath the frivolous fun of “Who’s Hurting Who” are some of Jack’s strongest lyrics.  “It’s my take on the great Kris Kristofferson’s song ‘Nobody Wins’,” he says. “About behaviour I’m all too familiar with, but hopefully is behind me. It’s a serious song in shiny packaging.”

“More Than Ever” finds Jack reminiscing about childhood summers spent in Italy. “Too Much History,” written with Joel Pott, has him committing to his relationship against a backdrop of beats, strings and his wife and daughter on backing vocals.

Disco-soul scorcher “Dancing In The Living Room” is not, as it may be perceived, about life in lockdown.  “We did do a lot of living room dancing during the first lockdown,” says Jack, “but the song is about going home with people you love. The highlight of nights out for me is always coming home and staying up dancing and drinking with friends or family.”

Rousing album closer “War of Words” was written as a lesson to his kids and features both his daughter and five-year old son.  “There are so many fiery topics at the moment, so many people shouting their opinions and unwilling to listen,” says Jack. “I realise how idealistic the lyrics are, but a war of words isn’t the answer.”

Jack approaches Europiana with more confidence and imagination than ever before.  “Singing to Strangers was my first album that wasn’t all about me, which I loved,” Jack says. “Europiana pushes that further. There are more characters and bigger concepts. I’m looking out at the world, not inwards.”

Urban Electric Artist Aazar Releases New Single

Following a recent track with Grammy winning, dance-duo, The Chainsmokers, French DJ and producer, Aazar is just time for the summer with his debut single (via Interscope Records) – “Diva (featuring Swae Lee & Tove Lo)” – the rhythmic, hip-swaying banger is available today via all digital retailers.

An Ode to Modern Divas in all their forms: from the most badass to the most glamorous, dancers or boxers. Aazar wanted us to celebrate in a fun and uninhibited way the diversity of the “Carefree Divas” of the World. Watch  Aazar, Swae Lee, and Tove Lo dance around the streets of Los Angeles in the video directed by Original Kids HERE.

The trio teamed up after Aazar was asked about his dream collaborations. “’ Diva’ is a very special record to me. I produced this record a few years ago and I always wanted a vocal on it. Here we are now, with Swae Lee and Tove Lo…I couldn’t be happier” says Aazar of the track. After sharing his appreciation of Swae Lee, Aazar (Alexis Duvivier), coincidentally ran into him at Paris Fashion Week. Without hesitation, he told the Grammy-nominated rapper that he’s a producer, a huge fan and believed that one day they would work together. When he reached out to Swedish singer, Tove Lo, who thought the song “felt like a golden egg dropping into [her] lap,” he wasn’t confident of a response. Tove was immediately on board after finishing a writing session for her album back home in Stockholm. Calling it the “fastest and smoothest collab ever,” she sent her vocals back within forty-eight hours.

More on Aazar: Paris-based producer and member of Point Point, Aazar, has been immensely busy in the studio working on an abundance of exciting new music this year. Having produced official remixes for the likes of David Guetta (Flames) and Martin Solveig (My Love) as well as powerful collaborations with Cesqueaux, Yellow Claw & Moksi (Shanghai Nights Album), Aazar is generating an undeniable buzz around him and his music. His more recent collaboration with The Chainsmokers on groundbreaking track ‘Siren’ has been streaming non-stop worldwide. Aazar’s live career is also on the rise, continuously touring around the world and playing for new audiences in Europe, Asia, USA as well as celebrated festivals such as Tomorrowland, Encore Beach Las Vegas, Mysteryland, the momentum is clear in Aazar conquering these territories. In contrast to the globe-trotting exploits of this artist, Aazar has also been spending a lot of time in the kitchen, as his gourmet alter-ego Chef Aazar. Interesting and tasteful, exactly how Aazar approached everything in 2018 and before; and 2019 is going to build on this trend since he already has some exciting stuff cooking.

ALMA Releases New Single & Music Video for “When I Die”

Finnish pop powerhouse ALMA releases new single and music video for “When I Die” via Casablanca Records / Universal / Warner / Virgin EMI & PME today.  Listen HERE.  Watch HERE.

Produced and written by ALMA, Justin Tranter, and Mike Sabbath “When I Die” is the second installment from her highly anticipated debut album Have You Seen Her? set for release on the 5th of April 2019. It also marks the start of a period of continuous activity, which will see fans receive a new track with accompanying visual episodically into its release.

Shot in her native Finland and directed by celebrated Finish director Miikka Lommi, the video for “When I Die”depicts a gothic last supper scene and ALMA digging her own grave. “This song was born from a big conversation about when and how we leave the world is so out of our control. We spend so much time worrying about things out of our control, we’re always trying to be better, richer, more successful. We rarely appreciate the moments in front of us. Go to the party, blow your money (even if you have work tomorrow) you will survive!” says ALMA. “I wanted the video to look like our last party, what might the night look like if we knew this was it.” 

“When I Die” highlights ALMA’s unique voice as a writer; honest, brave and fresh. As she says, “I’ve spent a lot of my life being told who to be, what to say or how to behave by the world. There’s constant pressure on us all to fit in and my music is about exactly the opposite. I want my fans to feel like they can be whoever, say whatever and look however when they listen to my music. Here you are accepted no matter what.”

ALMA – a 23-year-old with neon green hair, a magnetic punk attitude and a voice that could demolish buildings is part of a new wave of female powerhouses that have something say. Engaged and opinionated on issues from women’s rights to body positivity and sexuality ALMA is forward thinking and making a change.

Following her critically acclaimed EP “Dye My Hair” with platinum single “Chasing Highs”, smash track “Phases” FT French Montana (including an exclusive Charli XCX directed video) and her 2018 mixtape Heavy Rules;  ALMA has garnered over 350 million combined Spotify plays and topped iTunes charts around the world.

ALMA’s worked extensively with her friends Charli XCX, Tove Lo, Zara Larsson, Dua Lipa, Halsey, and Miley Cyrus but to name a few, both live and in the studio and garnered support the world over.

Wrapping up 2018 on the road with long term collaborator and friend  this year’s headline dates promise an entirely new show, new music and some very special surprises along the way.
