2013 was a huge year for producer and DJ Zedd. The 24-year-old has been creating his own electronic-based songs and remixing some huge hits for a few years, but last year this up-and-coming German house music creator helped produce and write tracks for some of pop’s biggest acts, including Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber.
Most excitingly for me, Zedd worked with my favorite leading lady, Hayley Williams, on “Stay The Night,” an electronica love song that dominated the charts. Zedd just released a video for the acoustic version of “Stay The Night” off his iTunes Session effort, and it is just as entrancing as the original.
I love how the slowed-down, heartfelt track highlights the gorgeous piano, infectious chorus, and Williams’ incredible vocal power. To make it even more personal, the video documents Zedd’s national tour last year, showing him working hard in the recording studio and goofing off behind the stage. Enjoy!
