It's official: Zedd and Selena Gomez have made a song together and are getting ready to release the collaboration. After months of speculation on their dating status and other people commenting on a collaboration between the pair, Zedd took to Twitter to share the cover art and the release date for "I Want You to Know."
"I Want You to Know" will be a Zedd song featuring a Selena Gomez track, as indicated by the album cover art, and is slated for release Monday, Feb. 23. The album artwork is similar to the style that was used for Zedd's previous illustrations on Clarity and the subsequent singles. The track will be released through the pair's label Interscope Records. Both artists shared the news on their respective social media accounts at the same time.

Nothing has been previewed as of yet, but OneRepublic frontman and hitmaking songwriter Ryan Tedder commented on the track at the Clive Davis Grammy pre-party Feb. 7. He revealed that he sent the original idea for "I Want You to Know" to Zedd, who he has worked with in the past on "Lost at Sea," and then Zedd crafted the final version.
"He crushed it," said Tedder of the "Break Free" producer. "I went on a run today and listened to it on repeat in my headphones. And Selena did a bang-up job. She killed it."
He originally speculated that the track would be out by the end of the month, and he was right. Stay tuned for any previews or snippets of the track between now and Feb. 23.
