NEW MUSIC: ALESSO & ZARA LARSSON | WORDS
After teasing his huge new collaboration with a then unnamed star through a filter disguising their identity, Alesso has now revealed his next track titled "Words" and it’s no other than pop royalty Zara Larsson. Of course, Zara Larsson is no stranger to the electronic world as she broke out onto the charts with the collaboration "Never Forget You" with MNEK, she has also teamed up with the likes of Clean Bandit on "Symphony" and David Guetta on "This One’s For You." Aside from collaborations, her solo releases have also climbed up the charts, the likes of "Lush Life," "Ain’t My Fault" and "I Would Like" being huge tracks. This also certainly isn’t Alesso’s first release of the year. Starting off the year with a huge VIP Mix version of Katy Perry collaboration "When I’m Gone," he also starred in the soundtrack for The Batman film with his release "Dark" which saw him take a surprising techno route. Lately, his March release "Only You" with Sentinel has been taking centre stage, but looks like "Words" is set to follow that same success very soon. Born in Stockholm, Alesso is of Swedish and Italian descent. The star began honing his musical skills early as he took up piano lessons at age 7. However, it was at 16 that Alesso discovered his interest in Electronic Dance Music. Then, in July 2014, Alesso signed with Def Jam Recordings, becoming only the second EDM artist to sign with the label after Afrojack. The music trio will be going on a world tour this year, and they tapped some of the most prominent artists in the industry to help them entertain fans. The first leg will kick off at the FTX Arena in Miami, Florida, this coming July 29.
