The second single from Tiesto's A Town Called Paradise album features vocals from Matthew Koma. The New York-bred singer and songwriter is best known for co-writing Zedd's hit tune "Clarity" and providing vocals on Hardwell's club tune "Dare You."
Matthew Koma also co-wrote the song with Tiësto & Australian production and songwriting duo Twice as Nice. Koma and Twice as Nice had previously worked together on the New York singer-songwriter's second single "One Night."
The song wasn't what Tiesto originally expected. "I wanted to make an indie rock/EDM song, and the song became 'Wasted,'" he explained to MTV News. "It's different from anything I've done before, I was really surprised about how it came out."
