Following up on the successful release of ‘Calling’ with Sebastian Ingrosso in 2012, Alesso returned to Refune Records with yet another progressive gem, a track that undoubtedly proved ubiquitous since it’s release. After being premiered on Swedish House Mafia‘s takeover of Pete Tong‘s Radio 1 show earlier this year the instrumental version of ‘Years’ immediately had EDM fans excited, and Alesso shortly after released the highly anticipated vocal version of the track featuring Matthew Koma on the 4th of August, 2012. Energized by the optimistic swoon of Koma‘s lyrics, Alesso‘s production shines as the shimmering piano melodies explode in a flurry of driving drums and uplifting, anthemic synths that are destined to soundtrack the summer and ignite festivals all over the world.
Hailing from Stockholm, Alesso won over his country from the very start of his career. Over the years, he has cemented himself as one of the most in-demand DJs on the globe, headlining festivals across the world such as Tomorrowland, EDC, Ultra Music Festival, Creamfields and more. On the production front, he has not slowed down since his first hit ‘Calling’, most recently returning to his progressive house sound with ‘Progresso Vol. 1’.
