Thankfully, the electronic duo have enlisted one of my favorites, LÉON, to help them ring in the new year. They’ve collaborated on a new single called “Want You Back,” and it looks primed to be another contender for the top of the charts (if you know what’s good for you America!).
LÉON’s full-bodied contribution serves as the track’s backbone, complemented by subtle guitar plucks that establish the underlying beat line while keeping rhythm, percussive elements that aid the song’s eventual ascension, and the metallic synth work that have become characteristic of a Grey production.
It initially feels like something directly from their frequent collaborator Zedd‘s electro-pop discography, but not enough to make it a complete copycat. They’ve hit just the right sonic sweet spot, and LÉON is certainly the cherry on top.
“I’m so happy that this song is finally out in the world! Working with Kyle and Michael on this one has been so fun and special, and I’m really proud of being a part of it,” LÉON said in a statement. “Ever since I recorded it with them I’ve been looking forward to you guys hearing it. Hopefully you’ll love it as much as I do.”
