Zedd’s documentary, True Colours, premiered at Los Angeles Film Festival in June, and is set for a full official release through iTunes on Tuesday 18th October. You can watch the full trailer for it below.
For True Colours, a film crew followed Zedd - real name Anton Zaslavski - in the lead up to the release of his album of the same name last year, whilst he threw fan parties across the globe.
The documentary traces Zaslavski’s story from being a young musician in a heavy metal band in Germany, right through to the challenges of playing in front of 14,000 people in his hometown. “When you have a show and you have 10,000 kids out there,” he says in the trailer. “You sometimes feel a bit disconnected.”
Zaslavski was also embroiled in a Twitter spat with Diplo earlier this year (March) over an advert for M&Ms. The Major Lazer co-founder criticised the German’s musical contribution to it, accusing the EDM producer of plagiarism, claiming that his production featured a “fake Flume drop”.
