Just days before the release of his new album, DREAMLAND 2021, ZHU unveils the richly cinematic track, Yours, feat. Arctic Lake. ZHU’s pensive keyboards shift to a simmering rhythm as he and UK alt-pop artist Arctic Lake who recently joined him on the Astralwerks roster trade vocals,evoking the uneasy tension between love in the moment and the aching for love everlasting. Mitch Bell (THEY., Tame Impala), who served as guitarist/musical director for ZHU’s 2016 NEON CITY tour,adds searing guitar.The three artists wrote the track together. Listen HERE.
The official video, directed by Yan Bokhanovich and produced by Daniel Shapovalov, takes inspiration from the classic Alfred Hitchcock film Rear Window and further explores the voyeurism of ZHU’s ONLY video. From the recesses of ZHU’s mind, the plot unfolds as two girls begin dancing in an apartment. As other characters emerge from nearby streets and buildings, they become entranced, then obsessed with watching the girls. View Yours HERE.
Ahead of this Friday’s release of DREAMLAND 2021 on Astralwerks, fans can pre-save / pre-order the album and instantly receive Yours plusSky Is Crying ft. Yuna and ONLY, ZHU’s collaboration with Tinashe. See below for the full track listing.
Sky Is Crying has amassed over 3.2 million combined global streams since its release in late March. Billboard said, Zhu has always been a vessel for the dark and surreal, and Sky Is Crying meets an age of hope and despair with somber groove.View the animated official video for Sky Is Crying HERE. Upon the release of ONLY in 2020, Dancing Astronaut hailed the song as a blend of ominous undertones with an alluring edge while Stereogum praised the dark electronic pop track built around reverberating keyboard arpeggios and an increasingly frenetic thump. View the official video for ONLY HERE.
DREAMLAND 2021 was made at home during quarantine, but as ZHU crafted the new set’s grimy techno and sweaty house tracks, he imagined the record as the propulsive score to a world starting to spin back into motion. DREAMLAND 2021 is about looking forward and creating a version of the future we want to exist in, ZHU says.
ZHU will celebrate the album’s release during his six sold-out DREAMROCKS shows at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO in May. Hisunprecedented run at the legendary venue is one of the first major multi-night stands to take place since the COVID-19 pandemic shuttered live music venues around the world. He will also be performing at numerous 2021 festivals, including ARC, III Points and Outside Lands.
