Collaboration between Alesso and Liam Payne
Alesso and Liam Payne teamed up to create their newest song, “Midnight.” Described as a song that will uplift the listener’s spirits in this time of despair. Payne starts out with relatable lyrics as the song transitions into Alesso’s positive build-up.
It’s a weird time for everyone, between quarantine and not knowing when things will get better. Alesso and Payne took the position the world is in and spun it into a positive light. Their performance video advertises that it was filmed in quarantine. There is no doubt that this pandemic will go down in history. These two made sure to show people they are keeping on with their lives during the quarantine. While doing this, they made a piece of visual art that documents the historical time society is in. The blending of the recordings in different locations shows that humanity can and will adapt.
