It’s only been a few months since Shawn Mendes first released “Lost in Japan”—and already Zedd has decided to breathe new life into the lush, mid-tempo bop.
This remix gives both artists the chance to step outside their comfort zones. Mendes has never forged far into dance territory, though the track shows he might be a good fit: The lovelorn vocals of the original fit perfectly with Zedd’s uptempo production, which flaunts funkier influences than one might expect from the EDM-pop producer.
“I was really excited when Shawn asked me to work on a new version of ‘Lost in Japan,’” Zedd said via a press release. “I tried to fuse both of our worlds together and bring us both to a place we wouldn’t have gone to by ourselves. It’s my favorite song from the album, so it was super fun to put my own touch to it.”
Chances are you’ll be glad Zedd got on board, too. Check it out below:
