"Alone" is a song by Norwegian record producer and DJ Alan Walker. Incorporating uncredited vocals provided by Swedish singer Noonie Bao,[1] it was released commercially for digital download on 2 December 2016.[2] A second part, a collaboration with Ava Max titled "Alone, Pt. II", was released on 27 December 2019.[3]

Background[edit]

In a press release 2 December, Walker stated: "For me, Alone is about cohesion. A song that praises the feeling and comfort of solidarity. When I started making music it was never about to be any [particular], but about creating something for others who could enjoy it with me. What I have experienced by making music and sharing it with [others] are stunning."[4]

Music video[edit]

The release of the music video for "Alone" was published on Walker's YouTube channel on 2 December 2016.[5] At 11 PM (London time), 15th of January 2019, it reached 1 billion views.

The music video explores themes of being alone yet quickly evolves into what seems to be a group effort by Walkers to meet up.[6]

Most of the video was filmed in Norway, focusing on Walker's home town Bergen, and included panoramic shots of nearby tourist attractions such as Ulriken and Trolltunga in Odda.[1] Some parts were also filmed at prominent locations in Europe, including Berlin, London and Paris.

In connection with the release of his third official single, he recorded the music video at Ulriken mountain in mid-October. For that, he sought and used over 100 Bergen-citizens to supernumerary roles in the production, which was made by the Swedish production company Bror Bror.[4]

Alone (Restrung)[edit]

On 10 February 2017, Alan Walker published an acoustic version of "Alone", called "Alone (Restrung)",[7] exactly one year after he published "Faded (Restrung)". The official lyric video to "Restrung" was released 16 February.[8]
