Swedish producer mastermind Alesso is back with his newest hit. After returning to his roots with DubVision on ‘One Last Time’, Alesso teams up with ex-One Direction member Liam Payne.
With 4 billion streams across Spotify, Alesso is no stranger to a hit and that’s exactly what he have here. ‘Midnight’ infuses Payne’s strong vocals with lush guitar and a catchy bouncy future bass esque climax. The track exemplifies Alesso’s production knack for crafting energetic and emotive feelgood music.
“During these difficult times Liam and I hope this song can bring some light” says Alesso.
‘Midnight’ leans more towards to commercial side, vastly different to his previous release. Alesso has seen major success with pop records such as ‘Let Me Go’, ‘I Wanna Know’ and ‘Heroes’ so we can hypothesis big numbers for ‘Midnight’ coming also!
The performance 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 LA and Liam Payne is performing the track on his rooftop in London overlooking the city and its sunset.
Fans of both Alesso and Liam will have this on repeat since it’s EST ‘midnight’ release.
