Grammy-nominated artist and producer Alesso today unveils the brand-new VIP Mix of his buzzing single “Words” [feat. Zara Larsson] via Positiva/EMI in the UK. Listen to “Words (VIP Mix)” HERE.
The VIP mix is infused with a four-on-the-floor groove punctuated by glitchy hi-hats and ethereal flourishes. The instrumental intro sets the scene before Zara’s vocals are introduced, echoing with the wild drop on the disco-style refrain, “You’re gonna run away.”
“Words” has already amassed over 25 million streams globally, with almost a further 6 million views of the music video.
“Words” follows Alesso’s recent singles “Only You” (a Sentinel-assisted anthem hailed as a “progressive house gem” by Dancing Astronaut) and “Dark” (handcrafted for THE BATMAN). As the latest high-profile collaboration from Alesso, “Words” drops just months after teaming up with Katy Perry on “When I’m Gone” — an irresistibly explosive track that soon saw him making his “Saturday Night Live” debut alongside the global pop superstar and a troupe of mushroom dancers.
Hot on the heels of EDC Las Vegas, Alesso is now kicking off a new multi-year residency with TAO Las Vegas and embarking on 15 North American dates for Bad Bunny’s “World’s Hottest Tour.” Tickets and full tour dates are available HERE.
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.
All women have superpowers. Wielding those superpowers, Zara Larsson provokes and pushes pop music and culture forward with empowered, enlightened and energized anthems that soar and seduce all at once. With every move, she continues to quietly make history and break records
