Here’s the first taste of ZHU and AlunaGeorge’s huge collaboration

UPDATE: The full track is out now via YouTube and iTunes, click play below to listen.

Mysterious chart-stormer ZHU has been largely quiet for the best part of 2015: that is, until last week, when the LA-based producer unveiled new website project Generation WHY, where fans can sign up to be the first to hear new material from his imminent Genesis Series releases.

Now, we’ve got the first taste from ZHU’s upcoming material. London-based duo AlunaGeorge leaked in a Reddit AMA last weekend that they’re working with ZHU on an “awesome track called Automatic ” and now, as Dancing Astronaut pointed out, fans who signed up to Generation WHY have received a short teaser for the collaborative track, accompanied by its animated video.

One enterprising fan has uploaded a rip of the teaser to Vimeo, which you can watch below; it’s textbook ZHU, with a low-slung bassline garnished with Oud and piano riffs, and the signature vocals of Aluna Francis.
