Zedd has had a lot of pretty big hits, especially from his first album, Clarity. Among those hits is “Spectrum,” which just experienced its 5-year anniversary this week.


Officially released as a single on June 4, 2012, “Spectrum” features the vocals of Matthew Koma, who also experienced a pretty big bump in popularity from the feature. “Spectrum” was the first single from the album, and what a brilliant introduction to one of the great albums in EDM history.

According to an interview from 2012, Zedd said he wanted ‘Spectrum’ to be Clarity‘s lead single because he felt “like it sums up my album the best so far. It has vocals. It has instrumental parts. It has everything. […] it shows what the album will be about so well.”

Listen to “Spectrum” below.
