Zedd has been tapped by plenty of pop princesses to inject dance floor hits with an added electro edge, but on his new collaboration with Hailee Steinfeld and EDM duo Grey, recently teased in a series of Instagram clips from the singer, big drops and bright synths take a backseat to sweet, sometimes screeching guitar licks.
Superfans will surely note Zedd’s multi-instrumental ability. Grey has been known to put a fierce remix on a Zedd track, so they must have had a hand in wonking out Steinfeld’s lush vocals for the killer chorus on this yearning love song (sample lyric: “Don’t need no butterflies when you give me the whole damn zoo”). Still, it’s far from a traditional EDM banger. Remix, anyone?
