In a recent interview with Billboard, Alesso described the electronic scene as “sometimes lacking real emotions” and he couldn’t be more right. While great emotional music still exists, it is mixed in with generic fluff that has become so prevalent in the last few years. It can be easy to get lost in the computer generated sounds but using them to stir peoples emotions is a completely different art.

The topic came about when Alesso was discussing the inspiration behind his latest track, Heroes, which is a collaboration with fellow swede Tove Lo. When asked about the emotional thinking behind Heroes, Alesso described why his latest track stands out:

“Honestly, I’m a pretty emotional person. Sometimes that’s what is missing in the electronic landscape — the real emotions. I have a euphoric sound, so when you combine that with an emotional message, it sticks with people.”

Alesso’s Heroes tour has been a wild success and has also helped give back to the community through a series of charities. Check out Alesso’s latest track below and read the full interview over at Billboard
