Electronic producer Zhu started the year off with a tweet teasing a collaboration with Tame Impala frontman Kevin Parker.

Today, that tweet has come to fruition as the collab track “My Life” has been released. It’s an atmospheric electropop song that’s reminiscent of the spacier ones found on Tame Impala’s 2015 record, Currents. Parker’s voice adds to the track with lyrics like, “Don’t tell me it’s all in my mind, Let me live my life.” It isn’t as dark as ZHU’s other material, but it does have a soothing quality that we aren’t going to refuse.
This adds to the many collaborations that the Tame Impala frontman has done, as he has worked with Lady Gaga and Miguel, and may be involved in a collaborative album with SZA and Mark Ronson. Zhu is due to release another full-lengh album since his last one, Generationwhy, came out in 2016.
