When Zola Jesus spoke with The FADER last year, she described her sixth album Okovi as "like a battle. It’s frustrated, and at the same time violent," she said. By contrast, her remix of Zedd and Maren Morris's megahit "The Middle" sounds like surrender, as the hook's plea of "why don't you just meet me in the middle" is saturated in reverb, bassy synth lines, and an overwhelming feeling of finality. Listen to the "Yung Zeej" remix below.
