Zedd reveals dream collaborators and album news in #AskZedd Twitter chat
On Thursday, Zedd — Dancing Astronaut’s #5 top EDM superstar of 2014 — took time out of his busy schedule winning Grammys, wrapping up his documentary, and working on his new album to chat with his fans live via #AskZedd on Twitter. The Q&A had plenty of memorable moments, including his profession of love to Dillon Francis and citing Deep Purple, the classic rock band from England, as one of his greatest influences. Although he remained mum on many of the details of his sophomore full length, he did reveal that there will indeed be a 2015 release date and a new single should be arriving in your headphones sooner rather than later. He also went on to discuss some of his dream collaborators, including Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars, and of course, Adele — all completely feasible after his recent collaboration with Ariana Grande, “Break Free.”
