Alesso's latest effort is music for cleaning up Gotham City's streets.

In theaters this weekend, The Batman, starring Robert Pattinson, received a brooding new contribution from Alesso, aptly titled "DARK."

In Motor City, the film sets a club scene at the Iceberg Lounge that's also soundtracked to a collaboration by electronic pioneer Kevin Saunderson alongside English house music producer Patrick Topping.

For those wondering what Alesso's thoughts were on the new film, he checked in after catching an early premiere to say it was top-notch.
