While Alesso and Liam Payne released their collaborative single "Midnight" from their respective homes on Wednesday (April 8) because of quarantine, the duo did get some IRL time together while making the track.
Months ago, Payne took an early flight from London to Stockholm to join the Swedish producer in the studio. It was their first time meeting, and what happened that day made them feel the project they were working on was going to be special.
"It's such an incredible feeling when a song comes to life the way you want it to be," Alesso tells Billboard. "There's this crazy electricity in the air...It's one of those moments where, that's why you make music. You get goosebumps...It was our first time meeting and you never know, but it was just awesome fun. We had laughs and he crushed it."
