Immortale

Songfacts®:

  • This is the closing track of Forever, the debut solo album by Swedish Electro-House DJ Alesso. He told Cuepoint: "I've always been a fan of classical music or orchestral music and songs that are played in movies. I always wanted to try to do something like that because my dad used to play a lot of that kind of music to me when I was younger."

    "I just wanted to give it a go and not end the album in the most obvious way," Alesso added. "I wanted to end it with something that I felt was powerful to me and to describe through the music my journey. You go through good and bad things in life, but in the end time heals all wounds."
