Ahead of the American Music Awards, that took place this past weekend, Alesso was interviewed by those over at Billboard. During his interview, the music producer talked about many interesting things, such as his collaboration with Hailee Steinfeld, Andrew Watt and Florida Georgia Line, “Let Go”, his latest single with Anitta, but he also speaks about his shift from dance music to pop.
“I used to just think about what will work on a dance floor at a festival. Now, I try to put out a song that makes me really feel [something], that’s meant to come out through your headphones when you’re on your way to work, or off work in the car, [or] being with your friends. I’m just trying to make the most of each song wherever it goes, not trying to push it to a dance floor direction. If I want it to be a dance floor version down the road, I’ll just remix it.”
In the interview, Alesso also reveals that he’s got a lot of new music coming up, so if you’re curious to hear what he has in store for us, then stay tuned. Meanwhile, you can check out the interview here!
