In a recent interview with Billboard, German superstar Zedd has announced that his second studio album is currently under works. Although there is no definitive release date just yet, the Grammy-winning producer has stated that he is hoping for the follow up LP to Clarity, to be finished by early 2015. He hinted that if anything, there is a possibility for a single or two to be put out within the next six months.
Zedd also stated that he is trying to work with Hayley Williams once again on a follow up to their hit collaboration “Stay the Night,” along with a few other artists.
“I’d love to work with Muse or Silverchair, because I grew up in bands and they really inspired me. But nothing is confirmed, that’s just my wish list.”
Zedd went into more detail about collaborations, talking about how certain projects come to be. He stated the difference between finding a vocalist for his own track and producing tracks on the requests of artists.
“When it’s about getting a singer for my tracks, it is strictly about the voice. I will have created a song and have a specific idea in my head about what kind of vocal texture I want on it. For artists that ask me to produce for them, the rule is I have to love it.”
Given the conditions, hopefully that Muse and Silverchair collaboration will become a reality by the time his sophomore album is released.
