Zedd's New Music Video For "Happy Now" Goes Unexpectedly Dark
Anyone listening to Zedd & Elley Duhé’s “Happy Now” on the radio would have expected the music video to reflect the song’s bright and hopeful sound, but they would be very, very wrong. In fact, if you listen closely to the lyrics rather than the notes behind them, you can discern a more sinister intent.
The music video for “Happy Now” brings this intent to the surface, ever so slowly. A group of friends are vacationing at a house in the hills. Two women end up becoming interested in the same man, and when the man makes his choice, the other woman doesn’t take it very well.
A combination of malice and deceit destroy the young man’s life, all while the young woman does her best impression of a woman beaten or abused. At the very last moment, a smirk flashes across her face. It’s unexpected and well worth the watch – check it out below!
Zedd's New Single "Happy Now" Is An Addictive Summer Jam [MUST LISTEN]
On this odd Wednesday, Zedd has released his new single with vocalist Elley Duhé entitled “Happy Now.” Continuing with his pop inclinations, “Happy Now” is a clear post-break up song, asking the ex in question if they’re happy with their decision.
The song is overall pretty simple, with few of Zedd’s trademark embellishments. A delicate beat plays behind Duhé’s vocals, along with a subtle piano melody and some effects on the vocals.
If “Happy Now” were on an album, it might be placed after an interlude or on a downswing in energy. Fans will likely be split over their reception of the track, but Zedd is truly happy with his selection of Duhé on vocals.
Speaking with Zane Lowe on Beats 1, Zedd said, “I think why I really gravitated towards her was that she had a genuine and honest approach to the song and she felt vulnerable and real. That’s really important to me because I want people who hear the song to feel like whoever’s telling him that story or her that story, is believable.”
Zedd Reveals The Release Date For His Next Single Coming Super Soon [Details]
With the success of “The Middle,” Zedd hasn’t had much reason to rush his next single. It’s been nearly six months since his last single came out, so his next is more than welcome.
First debuted at Zedd in the Park live with Elley Duhé is “Happy Now,” out next Wednesday, July 18.
The song is another pop reverie from Zedd, no surprise given the success of his more recent singles. As much as we’d like him to return to the days of Clarity, we have to accept that producers and musicians adapt and change over time. Listen to Zedd and Elley perform “Happy Now” live from Zedd in the Park below.
