"Who are you when you peel back the layers? When you dig to find the curious, fresh child who hasn't been imprinted on yet? When no amount of money can impact you, no number of followers can make you feel accepted and loved, no quantity of things can make you feel important or beautiful?" says Krewella. "Zero is a place where the pendulum has swung all the way in one direction, then so far in the other, and then finally, as if with an exhale of relief, balances slowly in the center. It is stillness and free-falling, nothing and everything."
worked alongside a roster of global collaborators while creating the 'zer0' universe; including Indian electronic producer Nucleya, Pakistani singer-songwriter, and entertainer Asim Azhar and Puerto Rican-American Mariah.
