"Why you sitting down? You should be dancing," Alesso observes on "Anthem." The Swedish EDM star is giving away the club-friendly new track as a free download for 24 hours, starting with the arrival of New Year's Eve around the globe and ending after his December 31st performance at Wynn Las Vegas.
Alesso's epic New Year's Eve event will wrap up a breakout year for the DJ-producer. His debut LP, the May-released Forever, featured collaborations with Swedish singer-songwriter Tove Lo, Ryan Tedder and One Republic. "To collaborate with ... all these incredible, talented people was a great journey," he told Fuse at Voodoo Music + Arts Experience 2015.
Alesso also said his main goal as an artist is "to make people just be in the present."
"You're working every day, you're doing all your studying, whatever you're doing, you do so many things in life," he said. "When you're at these festivals or shows, it's kinda good to just disconnect from all that for a second."
