Multi-platinum GRAMMY Award-winning artist, DJ & producer ZEDD has released his new single, “Happy Now” with Elley Duhé (Interscope Records). Featured today as Zane Lowe’s World Record on Beats 1 on Apple Music, ZEDD first debuted the new single earlier this month at ZEDD In The Park, the sold-out one day festival at L.A. State Historic Park, when he was joined by Elley on stage to perform the song for the first time during his headlining set.
“’Happy Now’ is the most organic sounding song I’ve made in a long time. The majority of what you hear was recorded using real instrumentation, a lot of pianos and a lot of guitars,” ZEDD says, “Lyrically, it’s a song that is both happy and sad at the same time, while musically, it’s a song that rather leans towards a happier, sunnier side. I hope you enjoy ‘Happy Now.’”
“To me, ‘Happy Now’ is more than just a song. It’s a significant moment in my life, the golden opportunity to work with one of the greatest DJ’s/producer of our time. Being able to come together with complete strangers to do something beautiful, sing something meaningful, to share something special is what ‘Happy Now’ is all about. Thank you to everyone involved in making this song and for letting me be part of your world,” shares Elley.
“Happy Now” is ZEDD’s follow up to his monster hit, “The Middle” with Maren Morris and Grey, which he released earlier this year. “The Middle” held the top spot at Top 40 Radio for seven weeks, was #1 at Hot AC Radio for five weeks, and has spent 23 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100. Digitally, the song has amassed over 800 million streams. “The Middle” was the follow up to ZEDD’s other massive hit, “Stay” with Alessia Cara, which spent six consecutive weeks at #1 at Top 40 Radio and earned ZEDD his second GRAMMY nomination.
ZEDD is currently on tour in Europe and, last weekend, he headlined Budweiser’s Bud Club in Moscow in celebration of the 2018 FIFA World Cup. Next month, ZEDD will headline Perry’s stage at Lollapalooza on Saturday, August 4th in Chicago.
