After recently announcing a star-studded ACLU benefit concert, Zedd has shared his latest single "Stay," featuring rising Canadian singer-songwriter Alessia Cara.

The first track from his forthcoming third album is an unlikely collaboration between the German-Russian producer and the powerhouse Brampton vocalist, who topped Billboard charts last year with her R&B-leaning hit "Here." The vocoder-laden song track opens with subdued hymnal chants before exploding into Zedd's signature summertime bombast.

The collaboration was hinted at by the producer in late 2016 on Instagram and confirmed in a commercial that ran during Cara's appearance on Saturday Night Live.

Watch the official lyric video for the track below.
