Hear Zedd's Awesome Acoustic Version of "Stay the Night"

At this point, everyone and their mother is familiar with Zedd's super hit "Stay the Night," featuring the ineffable Paramore frontlady Hayley Williams. The EDM guru virtuoso recently opted to the bring the song in unfamiliar territory: dropping, well, drops, in favor of a piano.

Teaming up with anti-smoking campaign The Rest Cost, Zedd recorded an intimate version of the track with the help of a string quartet. The result is a beautiful, slow-moving version of the club banger.

In an interview with the charity, Zedd said, "I need to feel inspired, and I need to have energy. For that to happen, you need to sleep, eat and try to be healthy… What you’ll be sacrificing by smoking, or what I would be sacrificing by smoking, is my health and potentially not being able to do what I love, which is making music for as long as possible. I don’t want anything to take away from that.”
