Jasmine Thompson × Zedd

Grammy award-winning artist/DJ/producer Zedd and Atlantic pop singer-songwriter Jasmine Thompson have announced today’s release of “Funny,” available now at all DSPs and streaming services HERE an official companion video (directed by Jack Karaszweski) is streaming now via YouTube HERE. “Funny” marks the first new music from Zedd this year and the latest in a stunning series of new releases from Thompson.

“When I first heard Jasmine’s voice on this song, I was blown away by it and knew I wanted to work with her on ‘Funny,'” says Zedd. “There’s so much emotion and energy in this song and Jasmine’s voice captures it perfectly.”

“After a relationship people always seem to come back and want to try again and pay you more attention and say they miss you. I had been through a relationship that wasn’t working and as soon as we ended it, they wanted to spend more time with me,” says Jasmine Thompson of “Funny.” “That’s what this song is about, and collaborating with Zedd was an amazing experience – his approach was unique, gave the song an incredible energy, and really brought it to life.”

Multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning artist/DJ/producer Zedd made his debut with “Clarity” after signing with Interscope in 2012 and has been breaking down barriers surrounding music genres ever since. Throughout his career, Zedd has worked with a diverse range of artists to create hits, including Foxes on “Clarity” (which earned Zedd a 2014 Grammy “Best Dance Recording”), Hayley Williams on RIAA platinum-certified hit, “Stay The Night” (which racked up more than 400 million streams), and Selena Gomez on the platinum-certified track, “I Want You To Know,” which spent four weeks at #1 on Billboard’s “Hot Dance/Electronic Songs” chart. He’s also collaborated with Alessia Cara on their hit single “Stay” which held the #1 spot at Top 40 radio for six consecutive weeks and earned Zedd his second Grammy Award nomination, and with Maren Morris and Grey on the monster hit “The Middle,” which earned Zedd is second #1 at Top 40 radio. Digitally, the song has amassed over 1 billion streams and earned Zedd three Grammy nominations including “Record Of The Year,” “Song Of The Year,” and “Best Pop Duo or Group Performance.”

Jasmine Thompson grew up in central London where her family of four lived in a modest two bedroom flat. After her parents divorced, Jasmine saw her mother working as many as four jobs at a time but always prioritizing her kids’ creative development, even buying a second-hand green screen for Jasmine to record videos of herself singing, that unsurprisingly ended up on YouTube where she now boasts over 630 million YouTube views and more than 3.5 million subscribers. Jasmine’s booming YouTube presence and captivating vocals lead to a major label deal with Atlantic Records at the age of just 13. Now 19, the singer-songwriter has enjoyed a musical growth that’s taken her from viral covers to her own ADORE, WONDERLAND and COLOUR EPs while also establishing a global fan following with featured appearances on internationally successful recordings, collectively earning more than 3 billion global streams.  She has made chart-topping appearances on a pair of global blockbuster hit singles, including her collaboration with German DJ/producer Robin Schulz on “Sun Goes Down (Feat. Jasmine Thompson)” that’s earned 1 billion worldwide streams along with a slew of international gold and platinum certifications and over 404 million views on YouTube. German DJ Felix Jaehn’s “Ain’t Nobody (Loves Me Better)” remix was another undeniable smash, earning gold and platinum certifications in a range of countries and drawing over 1 billion global streams and over 378 million individual views on YouTube.

Kathryn Dean × High School Nation

Singer, songwriter and recording artist Kathryn Dean performed her newest anthem “Friends (Don’t Wanna Be)” exclusively on High School Nation’s QuaranTeen Instagram Live series on Monday, June 22nd at noon PST, as part of an exclusive engagement for the community platform. Dean’s exclusive 7-song performance, streamed on the company’s Instagram Live, featured all new songs, including an unreleased stripped-down version of “Told You So,” the pop songstress’ 2014 international breakthrough hit, which earned her a devout following in Latin America and has to date garnered over 30-million views on YouTube. An exclusive, live fan Q&A with iHeart Radio host TyeHollywood preceded the performance, both of which can be viewed on High School Nation’s IGTV profile here.

When asked about her plan for the performance, Dean said she feels it is important to, “address the emotional struggle that comes from trying to maintain relationships while being separated from one another, and to celebrate our ability to overcome obstacles and grow from those experiences.”

Via her social media yesterday, Dean announced a contest that will give fans the opportunity to design official cover art for her next single “Exhale.” The winner will have their design featured as the track’s official artwork when it releases this coming fall across all digital and streaming platforms. Watch the announcement here for further details.

Showcasing Dean’s impressive vocal range, “Friends (Don’t Wanna Be)” tackles the emotional struggle that comes with being separated from one another, and the celebration of our ability to overcome such obstacles. Dean said of writing the song, “What started as a way to work through my mixed emotions turned into a reminder that my need to create music and desire to achieve my dream are stronger than anyone’s efforts to diminish my confidence for the benefit of their egos.” One of those dreams, to write chart topping songs, is a milestone she has been striving for since she began writing and recording original music in high school.

Working to achieve this goal since high school, most recently, Dean has embarked on a mission to make a chart topping single with acclaimed producer and pop chart veteran of nearly 20 #1 hits, Sandy Vee (Katy Perry, “Firework,” Rihanna, “Only Girl in the World,” David Guetta, “Sexy Bitch” and many more). Their creative process will be the subject of a docuseries, with the first episode due out later this year. The series follows Dean and Sandy as they embark on a mission to make her high school dreams come true with Sandy’s next chart topping single. As they progress, the duo relies on Sandy’s years of success, insight and experience combined with KD’s fresh lyrical style and powerful, Adele-rivaling, vocals to navigate obstacles and adapt to making music under quarantine. Capturing a unique time in music history, Dean and Sandy Vee offer audiences a raw look at the formula of art and science behind creating a hit song, from writing its first notes to recording, releasing and performing the song. Viewers will get the chance to follow this unconventional approach and be offered unique opportunities to engage with Dean and Sandy as their process unfolds. The episodic series will culminate with a feature length documentary film submission for Sundance and the Film Festival circuit in 2021.

All High School Nation subscribers currently have exclusive access to download “Friends (Don’t Wanna Be)” now via an exclusive code. The track is officially set to release on July 17th to all digital and streaming platforms. For more information, please visit https://highschoolnation.com/.
