Swedish superstar Alesso, took to Good Morning America’s Summer Concert Series in NYC’s storied Central Park in early September to perform his brand new single, “REMEDY.” The performance was equipped not only with full-fledged live instrumentation, but also vocals from the track’s tender-voiced Conor Maynard. A patron of piano since the ripe age of seven, Alesso assumed his position on keyboard at the crest of the prismatic stage setup.

While the track is Alesso’s first release of the year, the artist has kept quite active on the festival front. To follow up his top-notch wrap-up of Electric Zoo‘s 10th anniversary installment (during which “REMEDY” made a notable cameo), his headlining seat at Imagine Festival will serve as the searing crescendo to Alesso’s full-bodied festival season.

Alesso has released an extra terrestrial video for his latest track, “Remedy,” that’s not short on storytelling over the course of its five minute.  A spaceship lands in Hollywood, and viewers watch as a disk-like part of the spaceship breaks upon landing. A small alien boy then emerges from the spaceship crash and wanders aimlessly around Hollywood, observing different people and things like garbage while he walks around. He draws a sign on a piece of paper, seemingly looking for someone or something to point him in the right direction. Alesso posters around L.A. have the sign, so the boy heads to an alien rave hosted by the producer himself.

The alien boy runs into an alien girl at the rave, who unite with Alesso. The producer holds a record that is the same size as the broken disc, which also happens to have the same symbol the alien children hold. Turns out, the record is the broken piece to their space ship.

The visual video is a stunning complement to the smooth tune.

After crushing 2017 with chart-topping, radio hits including “Let Me Go” featuring Hailee Steinfeld and Florida Georgia Line, and “Is That For Me” featuring Brazilian vocalist Anitta, Alesso is back again with new music. Making his 2018 debut, the famed Swedish DJ gives fans a taste of his renewed sound on “REMEDY” featuring English singer/songwriter Conor Maynard.

The new single is built on wide appeal, as Alesso incorporates a wide range of instrumentals and rhythms. He kicks it off with soothing piano riffs and a soca-inspired drum beat, all layered under captivating vocals from Maynard. The tune’s break is light, yet pleasing to the ear with melodic harmonies and echoing pitch changes, bringing together a warming, complementary collaboration for the pair on “REMEDY.”

This track is Alesso’s first release on Universal Music Group’s new imprint 10:22pm, and made its live debut on Good Morning America’s Summer Concert Series in NYC’s Central Park. He’ll stay in the US this fall, closing out the main stage with Tiësto at Electric Zoo‘s 10th anniversary prior to a headline set at Imagine Music Festival September 21.

EDC Orlando will descend upon its historic host venue Tinker Field from November 9-10, and as in all past years of production, the Insomniac festival will bring a slew of stars to the Sunshine State.

Alesso, Alison Wonderland, Dillon Francis & Friends, Kaskade, Bassnectar, and more will take to the decks, their performances interspersed among a series of heady back-to-back sets, including 4B, GTA and Valentino Khan sharing the stage, Nicole Moudaber back-to-back with Paco Osuna, and Jamie Jones joining the Martinez Brothers, among others. Tiësto is slated for a special sunset performance, along with appearances from Martin Garrix, Tchami, Pendulum and many more.

DJ Hanzel interviews Alesso in new 'One Deeper Talks' cut [Watch]

DJ Hanzel reasserts himself as the electronic king of comedy in a newly released special director’s cut of Alesso‘s guest appearance on Hanzel’s ‘One Deeper Talks.’

A snippet of the nonsensical humor that transpires when a world renowned DJ sits down with Dillon Francis‘ inimitable alter ego, the cut sees DJ Hanzel describe Alesso’s music with a single sound, while asking the hard hitting questions–“why do you make music if you’re so beautiful?”–posed to propel Alesso to go ‘one deeper.’
