Grammy award-winning Zedd and pop singer-songwriter Jasmine Thompson have announced the release of their new track ‘Funny’, available now via all streaming services.
‘Funny’ marks the first new release from Zedd this year and the latest in a stunning series of new releases from Thompson. Commenting on the collaboration, Zedd said “When I first heard Jasmine’s voice on this song, I was blown away by it and knew I wanted to work with her on ‘Funny’. There’s so much emotion and energy in this song and Jasmine’s voice captures it perfectly.”
“After a relationship people always seem to come back and want to try again and pay you more attention and say they miss you. I had been through a relationship that wasn’t working and as soon as we ended it, they wanted to spend more time with me,” says Jasmine Thompson of ‘Funny’.

She continues, “That’s what this song is about, and collaborating with Zedd was an amazing experience – his approach was unique, gave the song an incredible energy, and really brought it to life.”
German-Russian artist, DJ and producer Zedd made his debut with ‘Clarity’ after signing with Interscope in 2012 and has been breaking down barriers surrounding music genres ever since.
Throughout his career, the 31-year-old has worked with a diverse range of artists to create hits, including Foxes on ‘Clarity’, which earned him a 2014 Grammy for “Best Dance Recording”.
After making her name on YouTube and being signed to a major label deal with Atlantic Records at the age of just 13 six years ago, London-born singer-songwriter Jasmine Thompson has made chart-topping appearances on a pair of global blockbuster hit singles, including her collaborations with Robin Schulz on ‘Sun Goes Down’ and Felix Jaehn’s ‘Ain’t Nobody (Loves Me Better)’ that have both earned over one billion worldwide streams.
