Zara Larsson Makes Her Return With Alesso-Assisted New Banger ‘Words’

Boundary-breaking dance artist and producer Alesso is back with new music as he joins forces with pop phenomenon Zara Larsson for a majestic new single called ‘Words’.

An undeniable triumph from the two Swedish powerhouses, “Words” is written by the global superstars along with Karen Poole (Kylie Minogue) and recent Brit-award winning songstress Becky Hill. The song merges Alesso’s dynamic sound design with a magnetic vocal performance from Zara. With its dizzying yet immaculately arranged layers of beats, the high-energy track takes on a thrilling intensity as Zara confesses to a certain fear of vulnerability in love (from the massively catchy chorus: “I got the words ‘I love you’ sitting on the tip of my tongue”). All glossy hooks and unbridled emotion, “Words” ultimately arrives as an unstoppable anthem for owning your fear and following your heart.

Directed by Jason Lester (a filmmaker/photographer known for his work with artists like Julia Michaels and Lauv), the video for “Words” finds Zara as a goddess in gold and white among statues from the past. As the mystical visual unfolds, Alesso soon emerges in a shadowy yet neon-lit industrial space. Shot on film and elegantly evocative, the result is a spellbinding collision of futurism, classicism, high-end fashion, and rave culture. Alesso searches for Zara making the trek towards her leaving the industrial darkness behind and stepping into the light.

‘Words’ follows the one-two punch of Alesso’s recent singles “Only You” (a Sentinel-assisted anthem hailed as a “progressive house gem” by Dancing Astronaut) and ‘Dark’ (a moody and kinetic piece handcrafted for THE BATMAN). As the latest high-profile collaboration from Alesso, ‘Words’ drops just months after the GRAMMY®-nominated visionary teamed up with Katy Perry on ‘When I’m Gone’ — an irresistibly explosive track that soon saw him making his “Saturday Night Live” debut alongside the global pop superstar and a troupe of mushroom dancers.
