Alesso & Katy Perry “When I’m Gone” was released globally today via 10:22PM / Astralwerks / Capitol Records. The vibrant new dance track marks the iconic artists’ first collaboration together. A high-drama anthem built on throbbing beats and powerful piano melodies, the single spotlights Katy’s radiant vocal presence as she offers up a fierce warning to the one who’s left her behind. Written by Alesso and Katy with Alida Garpestad Peck, Rami Yacoub, Space Primates’ Nathan Cunningham and Marc Sibley, and Alma Goodman, “When I’m Gone” comes to wild and dazzling life thanks to Alesso’s immaculate sound design and endlessly imaginative yet pop-perfect production. Listen HERE.
Of the PLAY Residency, Katy says, “I’m so proud to bring this larger-than-life show to Vegas. This residency has been years in the making - I remember being in a hard hat and steel-toed boots to walk among the steel beams that make up this gorgeous new theater! I had such a wild time dreaming up all six acts of this show, and it really made me listen to my catalog in a whole new way to come up with a set list that included 20 of my most-streamed songs as well as my new Alesso collaboration to keep things fresh.”
Katy will be performing a special medley of “When I’m Gone”/”Walking On Air” during her “PLAY” residency and for CNN’s “New Year’s Eve” with Anderson Cooper & Andy Cohen. On Monday, January 10, the official music video for “When I’m Gone” will receive a massive worldwide premiere when ESPN broadcasts the video at halftime of the 2022 College Football Playoff National Championship.
