Zedd will release his hotly anticipated second album, entitled True Colors, on May 18 via Interscope Records. Zedd executive-produced the album and co-wrote all the songs. True Colors is the follow-up to Zedd's 2012 debut album Clarity, which spawned five singles, including the Grammy-winning title track, and cemented Zedd as a global star. True Colors' first single, "I Want You To Know," featuring Selena Gomez, spent four weeks at No. 1 on Billboard's Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart. Written and produced by Zedd, with contribution from OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder, the uplifting pop-influenced dance track was dubbed USA Today's "Song of The Week" in late February, while Refinery29 said: "We're calling it: This is the turn-up song for spring." The video for "I Want You To Know" has racked up more than 32 million views on Vevo.
Fans have been buzzing about Zedd's very special roll-out of the
#ZeddTrueColors campaign, in partnership with T-Mobile, in which 50 fans in 10 different cities get to hear a new song from the album, party with other fans, and meet Zedd at color-themed events in very special locations around the U.S. As part of the experience, fans will listen to each new song on brand new matching colored Beats By Dr. Dre headphones.
Events have already taken place in Austin (a purple-themed party at Longhorn Cavern State Park where Zedd unveiled "Addicted to Memory" ft. Bahari); the Mojave Desert outside Los Angeles
(an orange-themed party at the Integratron in Joshua Tree where fans got to hear "Straight Into The Fire"); Phoenix (a yellow-themed party on Lake Pleasant where Zedd revealed "Bumble Bee"); San Francisco (a pitch black-themed party at Alcatraz Island where he unveiled "Transmission," featuring Logic and X Ambassadors); and Denver (a blue-themed party at The Stanley Hotel, which inspired The Shining, where he revealed "Illusion"). Last week, Zedd threw a magenta-themed party in Chicago at the Shedd Aquarium where he played his new single "Beautiful Now," featuring Jon Bellion. Yesterday, lucky winners in Philadelphia were taken to Fonthill Castle for a white-themed party where they got their first listen to the song "Paper Cut"featuring Troye Sivan.

Be sure to catch Zedd perform "Beautiful Now" on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on May 21 airing on ABC.
Born Anton Zaslavski, Zedd has distinguished himself by drawing from his diverse musical training and a background spanning classical to post-hardcore/metal to electro house. He creates detailed, carefully produced compositions that also appeal to audiences outside of the EDM world.
The New York Times has said, "his talent is extraordinary," while
Stereogum has noted: "His beats tend to sound like gorgeously engineered spacecraft that shift into warp speed at the drop, their engines overloading and threatening to disintegrate." After signing with Interscope Records in 2012, Zedd released Clarity to much critical acclaim. The title track climbed to No. 2 at Top 40 radio, went Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100, and won a 2014 Grammy Award for Best Dance Recording. The video has racked up more than 127 million Vevo views, while his platinum follow-up hit "Stay The Night" (ft. Hayley Williams of Paramore) has over 106 million Vevo views and won the 2014 MTV Clubland Video Music Award. Zedd first made waves with a series of remixes of tracks by Skrillex, The Black Eyed Peas, Fatboy Slim and Lady Gaga. He has headlined at numerous festivals including Coachella, Outside Lands, Bonnaroo, Ultra, Electric Daisy Carnival, Nocturnal, Tomorrowland, Lollapalooza, Electric Zoo and many more.
