Zedd is finally ready to follow up breakthrough hit “Clarity” with another unlikely collaboration. Taking the reigns from English alt-pop diva Foxes is Paramore front-lady Hayley Williams. She puts her trademark angsty rock leanings to the side for “Stay The Night” — another soaring house anthem with massive crossover potential.

Like Foxes, the red-haired rocker is an inspired choice. Her rough-edged vocal is the perfect foil for Zedd’s dreamy synths and she lends the track a certain credibility outside the ever-growing EDM market. “Stay The Night” is tipped to be the lead single from an upcoming repackage of the German/Russian DJ’s debut album Clarity. Calvin Harris, Avicii and David Guetta have a new competitor to worry about.
