Shawn Mendes, Zedd release 'Lost in Japan' remix
Los Angeles: Shawn Mendes has teamed up with DJ-producer Zedd to release a new remix for the singer-songwriter's latest single "Lost in Japan".
They teased the remix and artwork throughout the week, leading up to the song's release on Thursday via Island Records.
"Lost in Japan" is the second single from Mendes' self-titled third album.
Coinciding with the remix, Mendes and Zedd released a lyric video.
"When we decided to make 'Lost in Japan' the next single, I wanted to do an exciting remix for the song, and with Zedd being a good friend and such an amazing artiste, it felt natural to ask him to collaborate on it. What he did with it is so incredible," Mendes said in a statement.
Zedd got really excited when Mendes asked him to work on a new version of "Lost in Japan".
"I tried to fuse both of our worlds together and bring us both to a place we wouldn't have gone to by ourselves. It's my favourite song from the album so it was super fun to put my own touch to it," said Zedd.
The original version of the song has so far garnered 200 million global streams.
