Iconic GRAMMY® nominated producer/dance artist Alesso launches 2022 with the explosive success of his first-ever collaboration with global pop superstar Katy Perry, “When I’m Gone” (10:22PM/Astralwerks/Capitol Records), his “Saturday Night Live” debut, a new multi-year residency with TAO Las Vegas and word that he’ll join Bad Bunny on 14 North American dates of the “World’s Hottest Tour.”
Following collaborations with such artists as Marshmello and James Bay (“Chasing Stars”), Stray Kids & CORSAK(“Going Dumb”) and Danna Paola (“Rescue Me” for the Blade Runner Black Lotus soundtrack), the release of PROGRESSO VOL 2 and the unveiling of his debut NFT collection, Alesso wrapped up 2021 with a bang – dropping “When I’m Gone” on December 29 and a playing a series of New Year’s shows that took him to Miami, Denver, Phoenix and Las Vegas.
“When I’m Gone” – hailed by Interview Magazine as “a perfect pop banger that marks a return to the dance floor for both stars,” captures Alesso and Katy Perry in conversation – 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. The song has amassed nearly 80 million combined global streams to date.
Alesso recently made his “Saturday Night Live” debut alongside Katy and a troupe of dancers performing “When I’m Gone.” Billboard said, “Surrounded by giant dancing mushrooms…[Alesso] joined in the fun, providing the propulsive house jam.” Praising the “memorable” performance, ET Online noted, “The whole thing gave off real psychedelic Alice In Wonderland vibes, and took Twitter by storm.” Watch HERE.
Directed by Hannah Lux Davis, the official video for “When I’m Gone” premiered during halftime of the 2022 College Football Playoff National Championship in January, marking the only time that ESPN has ever dropped a global music video within a live broadcast across its networks.” Paper Magazine praised the ”over-the-top, kitschy visuals.” E!’s “The Daily Pop” later aired the behind-the-scenes footage from the video shoot.

His new multi-year agreement with TAO will also include performances at OMNIA Las Vegas and Hakkasan Nightclub.
