The wait is over, and the hype is fulfilled. ZHU's debut LP has finally hit digital shelves.

GENERATIONWHY is 14 tracks of pace-setting electro-pop. It's dark and mysterious, and yet totally accessible to a mainstream audience. It bridges the gap between lofty house vibes and radio-ready dance grooves, sophisticated but never pompous. It's the perfect album for that friend of yours who is still listening to the Weeknd on repeat.

Zhu Returns With Groovy New Single, 'GENERATIONWHY'

As promised, the LP includes the Skrillex and THEY. collab “Working For It,” as well as previously-released singles “In The Morning” and the titular “GENERATIONWHY.”

Apple Music blessed the release by naming ZHU its New Artist of the Week, and Spotify did the same by featuring the record in its The Drop series.

If you're lookin' to get live with ZHU, find him at one of these spots in the next few months. Otherwise, cop the release on iTunes, Spotify, Google Play, or Amazon.
