After re-releasing his singles “Years” and “I Wanna Know” with newly recorded vocals courtesy of Chen and Jolin Tsai, respectively, Alesso is back today to drop a new single titled “Take My Breath Away.” The Swedish powerhouse’s latest offering is a collaboration with none other than Dillon Francis, first teased last week in Alesso’s behind the scenes video from his recent performance at the Greek Theater.
On “Take My Breath Away,” Alesso and Dillon Francis deliver a dreamy pop effort complete with some alluring female vocal hooks. The song opens with scattered percussion elements and repetitive chopped up sample melodies, before the energy picks up full force with rolling rhythms and offbeat bass notes. Catchy topline melodies punctuate the soaring electronic production, as the rhythms range from driving house to slow riding trap.
Alesso and Dillon Francis manage to find a suitable middle ground between their respective styles to deliver a solid production on “Take My Breath Away.” With accessible vocal hooks and non-stop energy, the new single ranks as a mainstage ready romp with plenty of pop appeal.
