UPDATE (1/28/18, 10:25 p.m. E.T.): The song's official video, directed by Dave Meyers, premiered during the Grammys as part of a branded collaboration with Target. Watch it below.
Morris flexes her vocals on “The Middle,” a poppy earworm from Zedd, with a production assist from electronic duo Grey. Zedd and Grey previously teamed up on the Hailee Steinfeld-featuring “Starving,” and “The Middle” sounds like a mix of that track and Zedd’s Alessia Cara-assisted smash “Stay.” In other words, it’s catchy as hell and practically destined for radio domination.
“Baby, why don’t you just meet me in the middle? / I’m losing my mind just a little,” Morris belts on the vocoder-driven chorus. The Grammy winner completely strays from her country roots on this one, but manages to sound right at home in the poppy, synthy space.
In a press release, Morris said, “I’m so excited we’re finally able to share ‘The Middle’ with the world. Zedd was so great to work with and so easy-going, it felt like we’d been working together for years. The sound is reflective of my many influences as an artist – a little bit country, little pop, little R&B, relatable, emotional and catchy as hell. There are no limits with this song and I can’t wait to see how the fans react.”
