Zedd confirms third album will arrive in 2020
Zedd‘s third studio album will be released in 2020, the producer confirmed on Twitter. For the past few years, the project, dubbed “Z3” by fans, has been the subject of curiosity among Zedd’s following and an elusive next step for the producer.
Although listeners have looked to Zedd for a follow-up to 2015’s sophomore showing, True Colors, for quite some time, Zedd has stepped away from the album format in recent years and instead gravitated towards one-off releases. For nearly five years now, Zedd has achieved further prominence in electronic and pop circles via a series of well received singles such as “The Middle.”
A driving force of the pop-electronic hybrid, Zedd has shared 11 singles since the arrival of True Colors. 2016 ushered in “Candyman,” with vocals from Aloe Blacc, “Starving” with Hailee Steinfeld and Grey, “Adrenaline,” also with Grey, “Ignite,” the 2016 League of Legends World Championship theme, and a rendition of True Colors’ namesake track featuring Kesha.
2017 saw Zedd share two originals, “Stay” and “Get Low,” with Alessia Cara and Liam Payne, respectively. In 2018, Zedd’s catalog expanded with “The Middle,” featuring Maren Morris, and the Elley Duhé-assisted “Happy Now.” 2019 welcomed two more songs bearing Zedd’s stamp, “365,” which called on the vocal talents of Katy Perry, and most recently, “Good Thing,” with Kehlani.
Although Zedd has been far from idle, the sonic tides are changing, breaking the producer’s stream of singles and bringing instead–and as some might say, at last–another extended endeavor.
