Zedd & Elley Duhé drop acoustic version of ‘Happy Now’
Zedd and Elley Duhé follow the release of “Happy Now” with a barebones acoustic version of the original that strips the song of its electronic trappings to opt only for the minimalistic guitar melody that underlaid the original, and a comparatively more rugged version of Duhé’s vocal.
The acoustic version of “Happy Now” replaces Zedd’s whimsical synth work of the original–arguably “Happy Now’s” particularly sweet sonic spot–to create an atmosphere that is more mellow, and less obvious in its euphoria induction. The simply-styled acoustic rendition of the re-work still taps into the sanguine sentiment of the original, but does so while offering a softer, singer-songwriter take.
