Fan favorite artist Alesso just dropped his highly-anticipated new single called “Midnight.” For this release, he partnered with British singer/songwriter Liam Payne, resulting in a track with a slow and steady build with Liam singing about love, and leading into Alesso’s triumphant melody. As a result, the track radiates a confident and uplifting feeling. Liam Payne’s raspy vocals breathe life into the record that complements Alesso’s production and knack for crafting energetic and emotive feel-good tunes.
“During these difficult times Liam and I hope this song can bring some light.” – Alesso
What really stands out is the making of this amazing video, where in the current climate people have to stay six feet apart and shooting a video can become complicated. This video was shot during quarantine and provides an intimate look at both artists in their element. It gives off a feeling of unity with both artists standing together in self-isolation while pushing through. Alesso resides mixing and producing the record in L.A. and Liam is performing the track on his rooftop in London overlooking the city and its sunset. Above all, this tracks makes you rethink life and priorities. In this crazy world we live in right now, love and compassion are more important than ever.
