ZHU is back with new music.

Over the weekend, he released a new collaboration called "Monster," featuring John The Blind. It's out now via Astralwerks, and it marks a noted left turn for ZHU, veering away from the moody undertones of his past work and opting for an upbeat, colorful palette celebrating unconditional love.

“I fell in love when you recognized my darkness/Made friends with all my monsters/And you still wanna stay, still wanna stay,” sings John on the track.

ZHU explains: “I wanted to create a summer anthem for the kids who are finally able to go out."

Yes, please.
