The video was directed by Hannah Lux Davis and was shot in Los Angeles. The video premiered during halftime of the 2022 College Football Playoff National Championship game, marking the only time that ESPN has ever dropped a global music video within a live broadcast across its networks.
Katy said in a statement, “When it comes to my music videos we all know I like to push the boundaries and myself, and create unique opportunities for my fans to see them. ESPN and especially College GameDay hold a special place in my heart, so partnering with Alesso to become the first artists to ever debut a global music video within a live event on ESPN made for a perfect and natural pairing.”
Alesso added, “I’m so thrilled that ‘When I’m Gone’ is finally out. We’ve been waiting the whole year to share it with all of you. I’m honored to collaborate with Katy on such an amazing dance record, and with ESPN to become the first artists to premiere our music video at halftime of the College Football Playoff National Championship. I loved working with her and think this song and video came out super special.”
