Swedish DJ and producer Alesso has teamed up with Katy Perry for a new single called ‘When I’m Gone’ to mark the start of the pop singer’s Las Vegas residency. A music video for the track is set to premiere on BT Sport in the UK and ESPN in the US on Monday, January 1 at halftime of the 2022 College Football Playoff National Championship. Listen to the new song below.
“I’m so thrilled that ‘When I’m Gone’ is finally out,” Alesso said in a statement.”We’ve been waiting the whole year to share it with all of you. I’m honoured to collaborate with Katy on such an amazing dance record and with ESPN to become the first artists to premiere our music video at halftime of the College Football Playoff National Championship. I loved working with her and think this song and video came out super special.”
Katy Perry added: “When it comes to my music videos we all know I like to push the boundaries and myself, and create unique opportunities for my fans to see them. ESPN and especially College GameDay hold a special place in my heart, so partnering with Alesso to become the first artists to ever debut a global music video within a live event on ESPN made for a perfect and natural pairing.”
Kary Perry released her latest album, Smile, last year.
