Zedd told Zane Lowe about the song in an interview;
“I think why I really gravitated towards her was that she had a genuine and honest approach to the song and she felt vulnerable and real. That’s really important to me because I want people who hear the song to feel like whoever’s telling him that story or her that story, is believable.”
Zedd said in a statement;
“Happy Now” is the most organic sounding song I’ve made in a long time. The majority of what you hear was recorded using real instrumentation, a lot of pianos and a lot of guitars. Lyrically, it’s a song that is both happy and sad at the same time, while musically, it’s a song that rather leans towards a happier, sunnier side. I hope you enjoy “Happy Now.”
Elley Duhé said;
"To me, “Happy Now” is more than just a song. It’s a significant moment in my life, the golden opportunity to work with one of the greatest DJ’s/producer of our time. Being able to come together with complete strangers to do something beautiful, sing something meaningful, to share something special is what “Happy Now” is all about. Thank you to everyone involved in making this song and for letting me be part of your world."
