Here’s one the kids are sure to love. Zedd and Paramore’s Hayley Williams have teamed up for what’s sure to be an evening-ending dancefloor hit for anyone looking for a one-night stand. “Stay the Night” is actually about a couple breaking up but staying together for one more night of passion, bearing the oft-repeated chorus: “Are you going to stay the night? / Doesn’t mean we’re bound for life.”

As Zedd recently revealed to MTV, the original idea for the song — which appears on the deluxe edition of his 2012 album Clarity was to have a dude sing lead. “At first we thought it might be better to have a male singer,” the Russian-German DJ said. “But then, since I know Hayley’s voice, we had the idea to use her for the track … I kind of think it’s more sexy and interesting with her singing it.”

The single is available now, the deluxe edition of Clarity is due out September 24, and a video for “Stay the Night” is planned for later this month.
