Swedish dance music icon Alesso is kicking off February in style. The producer has made a world-renowned career in harnessing the premier aspects of his signature style and other tropes from chart-dominating singles, and his newest release is no exception.
Alesso’s “Falling” is a showcase of his versatility and proficiency. The song blends some of the best components of commercially appealing dance music, typified by lush chord progressions, sultry vocals and grooving bass lines. All of these elements combine to give listeners an ultimately danceable track. Expect “Falling” to blow up in the coming months.
After releasing his successful debut album Forever in 2015, Alesso launched a huge album tour. Many artists would take it easy after such a busy year, but Alesso surprised in 2016 by releasing two new singles: “I Wanna Know” featuring Nico & Vinz and Jolin Tsai and “Take My Breath Away.” Alesso’s continuing that momentum in 2017 by gearing up for his first big release for the year.
Alesso’s new single, “Falling,” will release this Friday, February 3, on Def Jam. He uploaded a teaser of the track with its release announcement, hinting at yet another progressive house track with a female vocalist. Alesso’s MO seems to be “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” and “Falling” will likely go down as another hit under the Swedish producer’s hit-laden belt. Spotify users can head here to pre-save the single so they’ll have the track in their collection on release date. Listen to the “Falling” preview below:

After a rocky (understatement) 2016, I think we’re all ready for 2017 to hit the ground running. Forgetting for a moment the amazing group of producers we’re looking forward to this year, the big guys are also looking to secure their status at the top.
Alesso is starting the year off right with a brand new mix on Beats 1. Beginning with his massive track “Take My Breath Away” and moving right into “Sexy Back” and a fierce bass house tune, Alesso is channeling some hunger in this mix; there’s really a little bit of everything in here.
