It isn’t exactly classified information that Alesso fans have been yearning for a return to the producer’s progressive roots for some time. Earlier this year, Alesso unveiled the introductory installment of his Progresso EP series in addition to a self-remix (alongside Deniz Koyu) of one of those singles that assuredly exhibited an influence from early on in Alesso’s career. To broaden that streak into mid-summer, Alesso is adjusting the sound on another release of his own with an adaptation of his pop collaboration with TINI, “Sad Song.”
Incrementally shifting the original’s tempo to a more club-appropriate pace, Alesso implements a delicate house instrumental before fuly transitioning towards what fans have been craving. A reflective progressive drop adds an overhauled and much-desired festival sentiment to Alesso’s radio-ready “Sad Song” as he effortlessly satiates multiple genre tastes in doubling down on his latest single.
Earlier this summer, Alesso confirmed to Dancing Astronaut that a second Progresso project was currently slated for release sometime later this year.
