Superstar Zedd‘s, “Clarity” places at #4 on the SIMShows Top Tracks of 2013, giving it the distinction by our production and management teams and fans as one of the best electronic tracks of the year.
The song is the title track from Zedd’s debut album, “Clarity” and features the vocals of UK singer Foxes and the track was actually co-produced in the studio by Zedd, Porter Robinson, Matthew Koma, and Skylar Grey. It’s official release came at the end of 2012, when it was featured as the iTunes Single of the Week. Clarity has ten official remixes, from some of the biggest artists in the industry including Tiesto, Headhunterz, Style of Eye, Torro Torro, Felix Cartel, and Swanky Tunes. Clarity has been featured in 2013 on national television where it was covered by Jessica Sanchez on Glee, by Michelle Chamuel on The Voice, and by both Ellona Santiago and Dami Im on The X Factor, not to mention everywhere on top 40 radio.
As of August 2013, “Clarity” has sold over 1.2 million copies worldwide, having peaked at #8 on the Billboard Hot 100. This year, the song was also nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Dance Recording.
Sound in Motion hosted Zedd at SummerSet Music & Camping Festival this past August, and we will tell you that there’s really nothing more beautiful than listening to thousands of fans singing these lyrics at the top of their lungs while the sun sets over Wisconsin pastures:
“Cause you are the piece of me I wish I didn’t need
Chasing relentlessly, still fight and I don’t know why
If our love is tragedy, why are you my remedy?
If our love’s insanity, why are you my clarity?”
