Grammy-nominated artist Alesso has delivered on his highly-anticipated single with Liam Payne, “Midnight,” on Capitol/Astralwerks. Liam Payne’s rasp-filled vocals breathe life into the record that complements Alesso’s production knack for crafting energetic and emotive feelgood music. Vivacious and meticulously crafted, the track contains a slow and steady build with Liam Payne singing about love overlaid by Alesso’s triumphed melody. The track radiates a confident and uplifting feeling.
During these difficult times Liam and I hope this song can bring some light,” says Alesso.
The performance video was shot during quarantine and provides an intimate look at both artists in their element. It gives off a feeling of unity with both artists standing together in self-isolation while pushing through. Alesso resides mixing and producing the record in Los Angeles and Liam Payne is performing the track on his rooftop in London overlooking the city and its sunset. The performance video made its broadcast premiere on MTV Live, mtvU, MTV International, and on Viacom’s billboard in Times Square.
