Fans of “The Voice” got to hear Michelle Chamuel’s version of Zedd’s hit “Clarity” during last night’s semifinals, so it seemed only right for Seaford’s Matthew Koma, who co-wrote the song with Zedd, Skylar Grey and Porter Robinson, to release his own take on the song.

Koma posted his acoustic version of the song, currently a Top 3 dance hit for Zedd and singer Foxes, this morning. His collaborations with Zedd have worked out well for both of them, with their hit “Spectrum” becoming the biggest dance hit of 2012 and “Clarity” looking to cross over to the pop charts.

Of course, Koma has his own music as well, promoting his single “One Night” after a European tour opening for Ellie Goulding.
