Grammy-nominated Swedish DJ/producer Alesso has announced his highly anticipated debut album Forever, set to drop May 22nd via Def Jam Recordings / Virgin/EMI and is available for pre-order today. Forever will showcase Alesso’s wide range as an artist with tracks ranging from cinematic pieces to some of this year’s biggest pop anthems. It will include collaborations with Calvin Harris, OneRepublic, Ryan Tedder and more. It will also feature his latest smash “Cool” featuring Roy English - which has logged over 5 million views on VEVO in just a matter of weeks - as well as his massive hit “Heroes (we could be)” featuring Tove Lo, recently certified platinum in the U.S. with over 47 million YouTube views. All iTunes pre-orders of the album will include the electrifying new song “PAYDAY” off the album as an instant grat track. In a trailblazing partnership with PAYDAY2, “PAYDAY” will be featured in the hugely popular video game as an extended 20-minute version of the track and will also include a game level with Alesso imagery.
“It’s been an indescribable journey to get this album together. I'm so proud of it, it’s very personal to me, it's a dream to me that this has come together and I do what I love every single day. I hope my fans will enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it and all the memories and emotions that went into every song. Thank you to everyone who helped me on this incredible journey, and this is just the beginning…” - ALESSO
Alesso recently teamed up with global high-end fashion brand Carolina Herrera to closely collaborate and produce the new track "If It Wasn't For You" from the debut LP, which he premiered during his set at the Ultra Music Festival.
