Amid pumping out jokes on the internet, Swedish star Alesso has announced a forthcoming collaboration with Liam Payne. In a video posted on Payne and Alesso’s social channels Wednesday (April 1), the guys reveal that the track, called «Midnight,» is a soaring anthem built on Alesso’s grand-scale production and Payne’s plaintive vocals, which proclaim «I just want to lay here, fall into midnight.» The song is out on Wednesday, April 8.
Alesso first teased «Midnight» on March 26, saying he had the track ready but needed a vocalist. Now that he’s found one in Payne, the two artists are also inviting fans to get involved in the official remix. Once the track is released, aspiring producers can do their own edit of «Midnight» and submit the track for consideration by using the hashtag «#AlessoMidnight.»
«Midnight» is the duo’s second collaboration, following their 2016 single «Next to Me.»
