Zedd ft. Foxes – ‘Clarity’ (Acoustic Version)

Foxes delivers the vocals while Zedd takes on the piano in the acoustic version of “Clarity.” The electro-house tune is turned into a relaxing, uplifting track through the inclusion of the piano and Foxes beautiful vocals.  Never thought I’d see the day when Zedd would be promoting Beats by Dre headphones. Gotta make that money.…

Yellowcard- “Fix You” (Bonus Track)
