Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale Featured on Swedish DJ Duo Dada Life’s New Song, ‘Tic, Tic, Tic’
Okay, Halestorm fans, prepare to enter a new musical realm! Frontwoman Lzzy Hale has collaborated with several musicians in the past and now she has teamed up with Swedish DJ duo Dada Life on the new single, "Tic, Tic, Tic." The dance group is one of the biggest in their respective field, so tapping one of rock's most notable singers will do well to introduce both audiences to another side of music.
A preview of "Tic, Tic, Tic" premiered at PopMatters and a sample of the song can be heard below. The song itself is boasts a danceable rhythm with all of the modern electronic elements in play from catchy, burst melodies to sing-along "Whoa-oh-oh" parts courtesy of Lzzy Hale. Her gritty voice always carries plenty of attitude and the same gusto is applied on the Dada Life track, showcasing her vocal diversity.
Speaking about the song, Dada Life stated, "We're always looking for that specific feeling of happiness and rage at the same time in our music. We really want people to be smiling while they're hurting themselves. This time we think we really nailed it!" Hale offered her own sentiments, adding, "I am a fan of the strange — and Dada Life expresses themselves in a way that connects with my own 'weird.' I want to thank them for having me on this track and letting me lend my rock n' roll swagger to their inspiring music! 'Tic, Tic, Tic' is eternally in my head and heart. Hope everyone enjoys!"
Hale recently collaborated with Trans-Siberian Orchestra on a bonus track off their latest release, Letters From the Labyrinth. She was featured on a reinterpreted version of "Forget About the Blame," which appears earlier on the album in addition to the bonus extra. Everything came full circle when she joined the group onstage in Cleveland, Ohio for the last performance of the tour. The frontwoman not only performed "Forget About the Blame," but remained onstage to sing a cover of Ian Hunter's "Cleveland Rocks."
