Go behind the scenes at the video shoot for “Stay the Night, “EDM giant Zedd’s new collaboration with Paramore frontwoman Hayley Williams. The heartfelt, beat-driven piano number – which will be available on Clarity: Deluxe Edition, out September 24th – was written about a couple on the verge of breaking up that decides to spend one final evening together.
“The video shoot and setup was quite simple but very effective,” Zedd tells Rolling Stone. “I had seen some of the Hayley footage prior to my shoot day and it looked incredible. Hayley did the hard part; I just played the piano!”
In addition to “Stay the Night,” the deluxe version of Clarity – which saw its initial release last October – also counts “Push Play” featuring Miriam Bryant, Zedd’s remix of Skrillex and the Doors’ “Break’n a Sweat,” and a Zedd remix of Aussie electronic duo Empire of the Sun’s “Alive.” Zedd’s “Moment of Clarity” tour is now in progress and set to wrap on October 11th at the Shrine Auditorium in L.A., where Bryant and other special guests will perform.
