Song follows The Batman contribution “Dark”
Alesso, the pioneering Swedish dance artist and producer, is doubling down in March with two scorching singles, each packing a unique punch, out now on 10:22PM/Astralwerks. The soaring “Only You,” featuring Sentinel, exemplifies Alesso’s versatility across genres and styles. The Batman film’s soundtrack, “Dark,” was produced and published on March 1st.
“Only You” has a soaring anthemic intensity that is lifted to a new level by smooth vocals. Since ringing in 2022, Alesso has been previewing this music on his booming shows. The theme is one of hope and spontaneity, of living in the moment while realizing that not everything is meant to endure forever: “We know it’s over, but that’s okay / We’ll keep dancing in these brilliant lights,” she says.
“Only You” debuts ahead of Alesso’s headlining set at Ultra Fest Miami at Bayfront Park today (Fri, Mar 25th). The evening kicks off a massive run of live shows for the GRAMMY-nominated genius.
“Only You” and “Dark” come after Alesso’s stunning start to 2022 with “When I’m Gone,” his first-ever duet with worldwide pop diva Katy Perry. Along with Perry and a group of mushroom dancers, he made his Saturday Night Live debut.
Alesso is gearing up for a new multi-year residency with TAO Las Vegas and 14 North American events of the Bad Bunny World’s Hottest Tour in addition to Ultra Fest Miami.
