GRAMMY®-nominated producer/dance artist Alesso and global pop superstar Katy Perry release a new version of their hit collaboration, “When I’m Gone.” The high-energy “When I’m Gone (VIP Mix)” is out now via Positiva/EMI in the UK, listen BELOW.

Through Alesso’s adrenaline-pumping combination of skyward electronics, stadium-filling synths, and thundering drums, “When I’m Gone (VIP Mix)” adds heightened emotion to Katy Perry’s stirring lyrics about a failed relationship. “When I'm gone I'm never really gone,” she sings. “You think you're moving on / but it won't be for long, you'll see.”

“When I’m Gone (VIP Mix)” comes hot on the heels of the duo’s Saturday Night Live performance of “When I’m Gone” which included a mushroom dance troupe. Watch BELOW. “When I’m Gone” has amassed over 90 million combined global streams to date, and has been lauded as “dance-floor ready” by NME and “a high-tempo banger” by Official Charts. The song’s music video, directed by Hannah Lux Davis, premiered during halftime of the 2022 College Football Playoff National Championship in January, marking the only time that ESPN has dropped a global music video within a live broadcast across its networks. Watch that music video BELOW.

Alesso is set to hit the road next month with a slew of shows. On March 26th, he will kick off his residency at TAO Beach Dayclub at the Venetian Resort Las Vegas. His new multi-year agreement with TAO will also include performances at OMNIA Las Vegas and Hakkasan Nightclub. Alesso will also join Puerto Rico pop-rap megastar Bad Bunny on his “World’s Hottest Tour” hitting stadiums across North America this summer. Tickets are available for purchase BELOW including headline shows at NY’s Brooklyn Mirage.

Katy Perry’s new Las Vegas residency, “Katy Perry: PLAY,” at the brand-new Resorts World Theatre, has added more show dates due to popular demand from May 27th to June 11th, 2022. This includes Memorial Day Weekend, and July 29th to August 13th, 2022. Tickets for all shows are on sale BELOW.



Alesso is a globally renowned producer and DJ in the dance world. Having garnered nearly four billion streams, the Sweden native has repeatedly proven that his influence transcends boundaries and crosses over into many other genres - to that end, he’s collaborated with such eclectic artists as OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder, Calvin Harris, Tove Lo, Liam Payne, Swedish House Mafia’s Sebastian Ingrosso, Hailee Steinfeld, Florida Georgia Line, Anitta, and more. In the UK, Alesso boasts 4 Top 10 singles - "Heroes (We Could Be)" ft Tove Lo, "Cool", OneRepublic collaboration "If I Lose Myself" and his UK #1 single with Calvin Harris - "Under Control" ft Hurts.

In 2020, he released a pair of hit singles: “Midnight,” featuring former One Direction member Liam Payne, and “THE END” with goth-pop singer/songwriter Charlotte Lawrence. Alesso has had an explosive 2021, releasing a slew of records. He kicked off with his East Asia fuelled “Going Dumb (with Stray Kids & CORSAK),” and closed the chapter to his PROGRESSO series with PROGRESSO VOL 2. He then followed up with his cosmic love ballad “Chasing Stars (with Marshmello feat. James Bay),” the dynamic “Rescue Me (with Danna Paola)” from the Blade Runner: Black Lotus soundtrack and his highly-anticipated winter floor-filler “Somebody To Use.” To cap off the monumental year, aside from making his NFT debut with the Cosmic Genesis collection, Alesso ends it on a bang with his colossal collaboration with Katy Perry on “When I’m Gone” to set up an even greater 2022. To date, Alesso has performed at international festivals all over the world including Coachella, Creamfields and Tomorrowland.
