In true fashion, Alesso and Katy Perry closed out 2021 with a dance anthem.

Written by Alesso and Perry with Alida Garpestad Peck, Rami Yacoub, Space Primates’ Nathan Cunningham, and Marc Sibley, and Alma Goodman, “When I’m Gone” boasts a pulsing dance beat and a cautionary message. “You’re chasing the danger. It’s just in your nature. Look for me in strangers. All these pretty faces. No one can replace it. I’m always your favorite,” Perry powerfully sings over Alesso’s signature production.

Fans won’t have to wait long to see what Alesso and Perry have in store for visuals. The music video will premiere on January 10 during halftime of the College Football Playoff National Championship on ESPN.

“When it comes to my music videos we all know I like to push the boundaries and myself, and create unique opportunities for my fans to see them. ESPN and especially College GameDay hold a special place in my heart, so partnering with Alesso to become the first artists to ever debut a global music video within a live event on ESPN made for a perfect and natural pairing,” Perry teased.


Fans of Perry, can catch the multi-platinum-selling artist at her “Play” residency now at Resorts World Las Vegas.
