ZEDD & KEHLANI “GOOD THING” NEW SINGLE OUT NOW
27 SEPTEMBER 2019 (TORONTO, ON) - Multi-platinum, GRAMMY® Award-winning artist, DJ and producer Zedd has released his new single “Good Thing” with GRAMMY® Award-nominated R&B sensation Kehlani today. Zedd first announced the new single last Friday when he posted a teaser featuring the song’s opening staccato melody to much fanfare on social media. “Good Thing” builds with Zedd’s percussive production as Kehlani delicately croons, “I’m good by myself, don’t need no one else, don’t tell me that you got a good thing for me, ‘cause I already got a good thing.” Listen to “Good Thing” released via Interscope Records/Universal Music Canada, the country's leading music company, HERE.
“It’s been a while since I was THIS excited about a song. To me, “Good Thing” brings all of my musical influences together. It has elements of pop, jazz, electronic and even soul. It feels like a journey of all the genres of music I’ve made and enjoyed throughout my life,” shares ZEDD, “Getting to work on this song with Kehlani was incredible. She’s such an unbelievable talent and I’m so honored we got to do this song together. “
“This record is special because I’ve always admired Zedd for his ability to breathe life into his art in such a fun way,” says Kehlani, “It’s a meaningful record but still extremely fun, and very, very me. Recording this was one of the most fun studio sessions I’ve had in a long time.”
The release of “Good Thing” comes as Zedd is currently embarking on the North American leg of his headlining world tour, The Orbit Tour (see below for remaining tour dates). The Orbit Tour follows a massive year of live shows for Zedd which has also included playing the mainstage at Coachella in the spring, headlining Red Rocks in June, and the return of ZEDD IN THE PARK in Los Angeles earlier this month. The North American leg of The Orbit Tour will wrap in October and then Zedd will bring the Orbit Tour across the Atlantic, marking Zedd’s return to tour Europe for the first time since his True Colors Tour in 2015.
