Alesso has just released his debut track, “Remedy,” under Universal Music Group’s 10:22pm imprint. And if you’re expecting another festival banger like 2015 “Heroes,” you’ll be in for a surprise. Don’t worry—it’s a good one.
The Swedish dance maestro takes things down a notch on “Remedy”—there are no crazy beat drops here. On it, British singer-songwriter Conor Maynard lays his smooth vocals over Alesso’s laid-back dance pop production, filled with house beats and shimmering synths. “I believe, I believe, I believe / That loneliness is my disease / I believe, I believe, I believe / That you are the remedy,” Conor sings on the chorus.
Props to the DJ for creating a song that’s gentle enough remedy a tough day, yet sufficiently infectious to get you moving on the dancefloor.
