Zedd reconvenes with Grey for first single of 2018, ‘The Middle’

This post was originally published on this site


After a 2017 led by the smash success of his double-platinum, Alessia Cara-assisted single, “Stay,” 2018 holds high expectations for Zedd. “Stay” held a consecutive six-week residency at the #1 spot on Top 40 radio in the US, and “The Middle” looks primed to be another contender for the top of the charts.

The track also sees Zedd reprise his collaborative efforts with Grey, the electronic duo memorable for their earlier collaborative work with Zedd on “Starving.” In additon, Grammy Award winning country music singer Maren Morris supplies vocals.

With each successive “Z” stamped single released, Zedd further solidifies his stature as one of the biggest stars in popular music. Morris’ vocal contribution serves as the track’s backbone, complemented by a subtle clock ticking that establishes the underlying beat line while keeping rhythm, percussive elements that aid the song’s eventual ascension, and the metallic synth work that have become characteristic of a Zedd single.

A release situated directly within Zedd’s electro-pop wheelhouse, “The Middle” signifies that Zedd long ago hit his stride in the studio, rendering each ensuing release one that hits just the right sonic sweet spot.

Grey have produced a new remix of “One More Night,” a single from rising Japanese group End Of The World. The duo’s uplifting, clean atmosphere is a perfect embodiment of the blithe, engaging sound which Grey consistently delivers. Featuring a relaxing drop, the producers’ therapeutic layering gives a buoyant, fresh feel to the pop-influenced original. For the Tokyo-based EOTW, “One More Night” is the first chapter of what will be an extensive experience for fans.

For Grey, everything changed after releasing “Starving” wit Hailee Steinfield and Zedd last October. “Starving,” which now boasts over 500 million streams, launched Grey into the limelight more firmly than ever before, and the duo has continued to seize the opportunity by going on to work with Lukas Graham, Mike Posner and more.

Stream their remix to “One More Night” in full below, ahead of its official release tomorrow:
