Alesso and Katy Perry have teamed up for new single ‘When I’m Gone’, out now.

The anthemic dancefloor-filler is the first-ever collab to come from the Grammy-nominated DJ/producer and multi-platinum-selling pop superstar.

The official music video will premier worldwide on 10 January 2022 during the 2022 halftime broadcast of the College Football Playoff National Championship on ESPN/BT Sport.

Alesso commented, “I’m so thrilled that “When I’m Gone” is finally out. 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.”


Alesso had a monumental 2021, dropping a string of new tracks including cosmic love ballad ‘Chasing Stars’ with Marshmello ft. James Bay, ‘Rescue Me with Danna Paola’, which featured on the Blade Runner Black Lotus official soundtrack, ‘Going Dumb’ with Stray Kids & CORSAK and ‘Somebody To Use’.

He also closed the chapter to his PROGRESSO series with PROGRESSO VOL 2 and made his NFT debut with the Cosmic Genesis collection.

Ending the year with a bang and colossal Katy Perry collaboration, the arrival of the official music video is set to mark the start of an even bigger 2022 for the artist.

Katy Perry has clocked-up a cumulative 50 billion streams to date and boasts an impressive 40M + monthly listeners on Spotify, with over 20M followers on the platform. Furthermore, she is one of only five artists in history to have topped 100 million certified units with their digital singles – and the first-ever Capitol Records recording artist to join the elite RIAA 100 Million Certified Songs club.
