“I’m a huge gaming fan. Starbreeze asked me to do my own piece of the game and appear in the game itself and it was an immediate yes from me.  PAYDAY was created with the animation and my live shows in mind, both of which feature in the game… a sort of animation sonic creation.  It was a great experience for me and gaming is big for a lot of my fans so it was another great way to put my album into their world.” said Alesso

“Collaborating with Alesso brings our bank robbing game PAYDAY 2 to the music scene.  Having Alesso on board for the heist as well as him making a PAYDAY track is awesome. His unique style of music fits PAYDAY 2 perfectly and the song turned out great. We love how the heist looks and we’re eager to hear what all the PAYDAY 2 heisters think!” said Almir Listo, Global Brand Director, Starbreeze AB
