Releases like “Clarity,” “Stay The Night,” and comparatively more recent singles like “Stay” and “The Middle” represent a consistent stylistic trend among Zedd releases: the centrality of a powerhouse female vocal.
Match Zedd’s penchant for a strong female lyricists that acts as the songs’ centerpiece with Katy Perry’s prowess in the pop sphere, and a collaboration appears not to be a question of “if,” but rather one of “when.”
Zedd’s increased movement into pop territory over the years and his provision of direct support for Perry’s WITNESS World Tour seem only to further ensure that both artists will spend some time together in the studio, if they haven’t already. As Zedd’s recent recap video from the Australian leg of the tour suggests, the duo might have more than just a few performances together up their sleeves.

Zedd previously told Australian radio host Smallzy that he was “always relatively open about the fact that [he] make[s] a lot of music with people.” “It doesn’t always come out, but we’ve been working,” Zedd said when asked if there was “any song happening” with Perry. “I always wanted to release a song with her, so if we all get lucky, then maybe we’ll finish the song and it will come out, and if not, then maybe another time.”
Cross your fingers, Zedd and Perry fans.

These dreamboat teams were the predominant unit … More »

Two of pop music’s most venerable forces are teaming up for a short run of shows, as Zedd joins Katy Perry‘s final shows on WITNESS: The Tour. Zedd, who’s commanded his own international touring itinerary, often times with multiple supporting acts billed beneath him, joins Perry as a special opening guest as her tour reaches Australia, capping nearly a year of consecutive touring for the “Chained to the Rhythm” singer. With Zedd’s high energy performance style warming the stage for Perry’s larger-than-life live production, fans in Australia are in for a treat.
Zedd is slated to open the Sydney and Brisbane stops, with Perry also roping in additional star power from vocalist Starley on a number of final tour stops as well. Zedd’s trip down under is hardly the first time major pop stars have employed the support of the world’s top DJs while out on tour though. Madonna’s 2012 MDNA tour included support from Laidback Luke, Martin Solveig, and of course Avicii among others. Martin Garrix and Justin Bieber have shared tour dates, and 2016 even found Skrillex opening stops for Guns N Roses.
