You could say that no other artist(s) has had quite as big a year as The Chainsmokers have, and you might be right. Watching how far Alex Pall and Drew Taggart have come in the past 12 months has been incredible. That’s not to say that they weren’t big before, but 2016 has really seen them grow to tremendous new heights, reaching numerous milestones and becoming one of the hottest names in music.
Whether it was their smash hit single with Halsey, which continues to dominate the charts and break records, their Grammy nominations, a performance at the VMAs that had everyone talking, and more festival appearances than you can possibly count, it’s been an absolute whirlwind for the guys and now, to cap off an amazing year, they premiered their new song the other night at a show in Los Angeles.
While we’ve heard it teased before, this is the most complete version we’ve had yet. Thanks to Twitter user YaGirlsV, we get a pretty solid video of the track and while it’s not perfect quality, it’s definitely enough to give us a good idea of what to expect, and so far, we’re digging it. No release date or title has been given for the song, but from what we can tell, it’s another pop-oriented tune with Drew taking on most of the vocal work.
Of course, he’s no stranger to singing, after lending his pipes to several of their recent efforts, but this is by far the most involved he’s been on the vocal side of things. There’s also an uncredited female voice in there as well, and while fans have been speculating as to who it may be, the duo hasn’t revealed that just yet. Overall, it’s not too far off from “Closer” and thanks to the song’s catchiness and mainstream friendly vibe, we’re pretty confident that The Chainsmokers have got another huge hit on their hands with this one.
