Alesso, Sick Individuals end the year-plus wait for the next holy grail ID, ‘We Go Out’

Happy “Rave All Night” day.It seemed like actually reading that sentence out loud was going to remain a figment of the imagination for the foreseeable future. But after a year and a half of patiently waiting, it’s officially a reality. And yes, just like with “Somebody To Use,” the ID we’d been relentlessly chasing comes under a different three words on release day, but we couldn’t celebrate without a quick nod back towards its longtime, fan-given name. The hunt for “We Go Out”—as it’s now formally known as—all ensued when Alesso transformed his “Together Again” tagline from Ultra Taiwan into a pair of evenings in Downtown Los Angeles. And he planted several ID seeds during that West Coast stint in July 2021—also including what would eventually become “In My Feelings” with Deniz Koyu—with one of them being the ever-elusive showpiece that has now removed itself from the the headmost position on Dancing Astronaut‘s most-anticipated releases of 2022. Most had an unconfirmed understanding that “We Go Out” belonged to Alesso and Alesso only, but Sick Individuals quietly revealed just before summer began that it was actually a joint venture that no one realistically saw coming. The then-unreleased ID was a permanent component of each and every Alesso set that would follow his Together Again shows, even being the track to properly weaponize The Brooklyn Mirage‘s 200-foot-wide LED wall for the first time ever in May. And when it jumped into the tracklist driver’s seat as Alesso’s newest opening edit at Creamfields, the clock towards its inevitable release seemed to be ticking faster, with it officially arriving just a month and a half later. There shouldn’t be the slightest bit of confusion as to why “We Go Out” was the track we’d been crossing our fingers for over all else, possibly excluding Axwell‘s “Behold.” And as we’d previously broken down in the outline of it from our record of the year’s top IDs, “We Go Out” continues to bridge the gap between the past and present eras of Alesso. “Somebody To Use” did just that too exactly a year ago, but this time around Alesso finds a new route in merging his PROGRESSO-like recipe and the progressive tack of his early-2010s work. And Sick Individuals not only come in to forcefully match Alesso’s Midas touch with a propulsive house boost, they also supply the already iconic, robot-esque lyrics that begin with “we go out dancing together, we gotta rave all night” and lead into a planet-sized progression that has awoken audiences everywhere from Los Angeles to New York to Miami to Las Vegas to Boom for 15 months and counting. Before we eventually turn Alesso’s ID chase to “Interstellar” or “Since I Found U,” soak in the reality that the unending wait for what will be turn into one of 2022’s presiding releases has finally come to a close.
