Earlier in July, Zedd released his first new music of the year, and now that same song is soundtracking a new Zedd-centric experience inside of Minecraft.
Released Monday (July 27), the “beat saber” game Beat Craft 2 lets players keep the beat along with the song in order to clear the level. The beats in question belong to “Funny,” the new single from Zedd and vocalist Jasmine Thompson that explores the humor found in the aftermath of a broken relationship. And while the music has a playful tone, it was delivered with sincere intentions.
“I believe I finished the song in late February, but it has been difficult to find an appropriate time to release “Funny” given the difficult state the world is in,” Zedd said in a recent Twitter conversation with Billboard Dance. “I believe music has a healing power and hope that it can help people make their days easier/more happy.”
Fans and gamers can download the new game here to get onboard with gaming enthusiast Zedd, who in May told Billboard that his laziest time during quarantine was the “four or five straight days in a row I spent playing video games.” A quick clip of the new multiplayer game Valorant can also be spotted within the video for “Funny,” which also features dogs and a Lewis Capaldi cameo.
