A.CHAL, aligns with Palmtrees. Each song from Palmtrees & Powerlines will find a place within one of these two worlds NETSKY has built.

About their “Ice Cold” collaboration, Guetta excitedly said, “Working with NETSKY on this track was amazing. He’s such a great producer, and I’m really happy with the end result.

NETSKY recently produced two cuts on the Guetta’s recent album 7, including “Light Headed” [feat. Sia] and “Battle” [feat. Faouzia].

“’Ice Cold’ was such a fun song to make.” NETSKY adds about the new song, “I remember both Stargate and David Guetta making me crank up this demo in a LA studio and all of us vibing to it together. Working with David was amazing, it was inspiring seeing his work routine and energy in studio and I’m so excited to be releasing this single today.”

Jeremy Zucker

“Icy, minimal but tuneful electronic pop” – The New York Times

“glisten reflects Zucker’s dedication to creating music that echoes what’s happening during his life at a given moment.” – Billboard

[Of “comethru”] “Zucker’s smooth vocals glide over bright strums of a guitar as he sings about his summer on the mellow track.” – COMPLEX

[Of “better off”] “The 21-year-old takes it to the next level…a finely-wrought duet
with fellow Next Big Thing Chelsea Cutler.” – Idolator

Multi-talented, Brooklyn-based singer, songwriter and producer Jeremy Zucker unveils his latest single “thinking 2 much” today—listen here. “thinking 2 much” and Zucker’s recently released single “comethru” are taken from his upcoming EP summer, set for release on September 28th.

Zucker just kicked off his first-ever North American headline tour, the “anything, anywhere tour,” of which 21 of the 23 shows sold out in advance of the tour. See the full list of dates below.

Growing up in suburban New Jersey, 22-year-old singer, songwriter and producer Jeremy Zucker has always been surrounded by music. As a child, he took piano and guitar lessons and formed a band with two friends from elementary school. By high school, he was writing lyrics and producing songs for other people. Eventually, Zucker recorded a rough demo, which became his first real release beach island in the summer of 2015. He followed it with breathe in the fall of that same year as a freshman at Colorado College pursuing a degree in Molecular Biology. He cranked out songs in his dorm room and released them over Soundcloud—one every week. He later transferred them over to Spotify, where breathe’s lead single “Bout It” became the catalyst, hitting Spotify’s Discover Weekly playlist.

From there Zucker released motions in 2017 and performed at his first sold-out show at The Studio of Webster Hall that summer. Following the massive streaming success of his 2017 single “talk is overrated” featuring blackbear, 2018’s intensely personal EP glisten delivered the groundbreaking song “all the kids are depressed,” the first widespread glimpse into Zucker’s songwriting ethos. The track has over 30 million Spotify streams to date and its powerful video, directed by Drew Kirsch (Felix Jaehn, blackbear, Louis the Child, Quinn XCII), has over 5 million views to date. In May, he graduated from Colorado College and put his degree aside to finally pursue his dream of making music.
