Hayley Eichenbaum – Zedd and Elley Duhé
After debuting “Happy Now” with Elley Duhé at his sold-out Zedd in the Park concert at Los Angeles State Historic Park earlier this month, Zedd’s summer single has finally arrived. The zippy pop record comes on the heels of “The Middle” with Maren Morris and Grey, which is currently at No. 13 on the Hot 100.
“‘Happy Now’ is the most organic sounding song I’ve made in a long time,” says Zedd in an emailed press statement. “The majority of what you hear was recorded using real instrumentation, a lot of pianos and a lot of guitars. 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.”
Duhé adds, “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.”
“Happy Now” is bound to cheer any listener up. Listen to it below:
