Zedd + Maren Morris Tease New Single

Proof positive that that a new Maren Morris and Zedd collaboration could be en route, the country singer and dance music producer took to social media this weekend, teasing a follow-up to their 2018 pop hit “The Middle” (with Grey.)

Sharing a photo of the pair on Saturday (8.13,) Morris wrote “Round 2?” on Twitter and Zedd (born Anton Zaslavski) shared “Should we do it again?” in his own tweet with the same picture.

Four years ago the pair’s pop dance hit “The Middle” was a #1 Billboard Hot Dance/Electronic Songs charter for 33 weeks and a #5 single on the Hot 100 chart.

In a 2018 interview with Billboard, Zedd talked about recording the track with Morris “It was one of the fastest sessions I’ve ever done,” “I’m known for recording a singer until there’s basically no more voice left — to be safe, so that I never have to ask somebody to come back. This was 20 takes, two hours: Maren really knew the song.”

“I’ll never forget hearing it for the first time,” Morris added. “Technically, it was in the Target commercial [aired during the 2018 Grammys], but hearing it on [WRVW] The River, the pop station here in Nashville, there’s something about radio waves coming through your car speakers. Country fans may have been scared of [me] leaving the nest initially, but once the song came out they were just proud of me for making a catchy-as-hell song.”
