A remix of the title track from Zedd‘s 2015 sophomore LP, True Colors, isn’t exactly one that electronic listeners would expect to be making the rounds in 2021, but Virtual Riot has used the element of surprise to his advantage, ensnaring the Twitterverse with the latest version of his spin on the song long in the making—five years, to be exact. Though Virtual Riot has spent a half-decade refurbishing his remix of the Ke$ha feature, if his January 10 Twitter signal is to be taken at face value, it’s possible that the “True Colors” work just might be over, and the revamp, ready for release.
Needless to say, Virtual Riot’s decision to disclose the iteration that listeners “need to hear” created quite the stir, sending Virtual Riot fans to Zedd’s own Twitter to ask why the pair had not yet collaborated. With an emoji smirk, Zedd all but broke the internet with his response: “Oh but we have.”
Whether this meeting of the musical minds applies only to Virtual Riot’s “True Colors” remix or extends to another production in the vault is currently unclear, but Virtual Riot’s updated revamp now provides the soundtrack for further speculation. Stream below.
