Coming as Zedd’s first release of 2020, the GRAMMY award-winning talent showcases his production prowess once again with a vibrant gem fueled by Thompson’s angelic offering which comes accompanied with a fun lockdown-oriented video.
Zedd tells Apple Music how “Funny” came to be, “It took quite a long time until I thought it was ready. Jasmine, and Monsters & Strangerz, who are the connecting link between the two of us, they were working on “Funny” and then Monster sent it to me and asked did I want to produce it? And I think at that point Jasmine didn’t even know that I was working on it yet. I’m not even exactly sure when you found out that I was working on it?”
“But I think we went through so many versions I can’t even count. I actually, my manager Dave has a screenshot because I keep sending him all new versions and he has a screenshot of all the versions I’ve made, which is completely ridiculous from four on the floor to … I mean, I’ve tried pretty much everything until I knew that this was the best way the sound could ever be because I tried every other possible thing I could think of and knew that this is perfect, the way the song should be.”
“This is somewhat of a new zone for me, but I feel really comfortable making music in that tempo. And like I said, I used to make a lot more club bangers and just like experimentally more harder stuff, and until I discovered my love for more vocal driven pop music. But still there’s something interesting in it, like from my old world, basically. And yeah, this is a tempo I definitely enjoy a lot making.”
