Alesso & Marshmello - Chasing Stars ft. James Bay

August 24, 2021

The three artists unite their musical worlds.
DJ and music producer of the dance scene Alesso joins forces with EDM star Marshmello and rock singer and guitarist James Bay in "Chasing Stars", a wonderful and soulful song that meets the three artists at the peak of their skills.

"Chasing Stars", which is released from 10:22 PM / Astralwerks / Universal Music, is accompanied by a highly imaginative music video that captures the mood of dreamy nostalgia of the song.

The song, a beautifully detailed flashback to a broken relationship, opens with a heartbreaking performance by James Bay (who also created the enchanting cover of the single) with piano accompaniment.

From this point on, Alesso and Marshmello do their undoubted magic and transform "Chasing Stars", an equally bittersweet and euphoric song, into a complete anthem that perfectly reflects the spirit of the lyrics.

In the fantastically surreal music video for "Chasing Stars", directed by Jake Jelicich (Dua Lipa, Niall Horan), James Bay works on the bench of a video club and explores a stack of VHS tapes.

As the video unfolds, he becomes more and more fascinated by the deeply familiar scenes that look like family movies and by the charming woman who appears on each cassette and soon ends up immersed completely in these memories.

In a particularly clever touch, the walls of the video club are filled with posters with photos of Alesso and Marshmello, while the two music producers are also depicted on some of the VHS covers, beautifully designed in a classic B-movie aesthetic.

"Chasing Stars" succeeds Alesso in "Progresso Vol. 2 ", a package of two songs that was released in early June as a continuation of the series that started with" Alesso Mixtape - Progresso Volume 1 "in 2019.

The "Progresso Vol. 2 "includes the extremely attractive floor-filler" Together "and the innovative techno song" Again "which refers to classic rave tracks.
