The Chainsmokers’ rise to the very highest heights of the music scene has been expeditious to say the least. Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall formed the now world-famous originally EDM DJ duo in New York City back in 2012. They could have barely imagined the journey through the music rankings to become Grammy Award winning artists, enjoying collaborations with none other than the likes of Coldplay this year.
Most will remember breakthrough single #selfie back in 2014. From there, hit ‘Roses’ gained the duo significant momentum and single ‘Closer’ last summer gained them the coveted number one spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. ‘Paris’ and ‘Something Just Like This’ (with Coldplay) continued their climb towards the musical stratosphere.
On Monday, March 27th, The Chainsmokers teased fans with the release of ‘The One’, a third single from an album they previously said would never be released. Whilst slightly more downtempo than ‘Closer’ and ‘Paris’, the New Yorkers remain true to their signature sound. ‘The One’ is sure to please avid fans.
April 7th will see the release of studio album ‘Memories… Do Not Open’, a hugely anticipated record, but will it deliver? With 12 tracks including two featuring songwriter Emily Warren, we can expect more warm stadium filling sing-a-long anthems. We anticipate this eagerly awaited album to be a great success world-wide.
Memories… Do Not Open is available to order via iTunes now.
