Zhu shares new album single ‘Palm of My Hand’
With the release of Zhu’s debut album GENERATIONWHY quickly approaching, the hype around the “Faded” producer is reaching a fever pitch. Previous collaborations with Kaskade on “In The Morning,” and Skrillex on “Working For It” — which also will be featured on his album — have served to set the stage for what will surely be a diverse debut. The enigmatic producer has now released another new track from GENERATIONWHY, “Palm of My Hand.”
From the get-go, the track evokes a retro, ’80s vibe. Police sirens quickly give way to rounded off, gently pulsing synths, providing a foundation for an extended guitar solo. The track eventually transitions into a house beat, while maintaining a melancholic, contemplative nature. The layered production, featuring more guitar, strings, piano, electronic horns, and a chunky bass, is accompanied by a breathy vocal repeating the track’s title as a hook. Given the track’s length — it comes in at just over six minutes — the track has plenty of time for extended solos and instrumental sections, which all evoke the same vibe while still avoiding any dragging or excessive self-indulgence.
