ZHU links with acclaimed songwriter John The Blind on dazzling new house cut, ‘Monster’
When ZHU isn’t busy playing an unprecedented sold-out, six-night run Red Rocks Amphitheatre, he’s usually hard t work in the studio. The Grammy-nominated producer has just teamed up with acclaimed singer/songwriter and producer John The Blind on the new single “Monster,” out now on Astralwerks. A stunning departure from ZHU’s dusky signature sound, the track is a sparkling, straight-up celebration of unconditional love.
“I fell in love when you recognized my darkness/Made friends with all my monsters/And you still wanna stay, still wanna stay,” sings John The Blind, who takes the lead on vocals, with harmonies and a soulful falsetto closing from ZHU. The two artists produced and performed the track together, with ZHU on bass and John on guitar.
John The Blind – who is also known as John Ryan – released isolation, his first full-length album, earlier this year. His vocals have been heard on tracks by Pitbull, Brass Knuckles, and DJ Snake. A multi-platinum songwriter and producer, he is also known for his work with One Direction, Maroon 5, John Legend, and others.
Tickets go on sale today, July 23, at 10am local time for ZHU’s October 10 and 11 shows at Los Angeles’ Greek Theatre and his November 24 and 26 dates at Avant Gardner in Brooklyn. ZHU will perform a unique show each night. Shiba San will join as special guest on all dates. ZHU will also be performing at numerous 2021 festivals, including ARC, III Points, Electric Daisy Carnival, and Outside Lands. See below for ZHU’s full road itinerary.
