• Muzik First


More than two years have passed since The Chainsmokers launched an official single. That changes this coming as the duo has released a new single entitled “High.” Alex Pall and Drew Taggart first took to Instagram last week, posting a short reel of waves breaking with a purple filter; it also features a snippet of what could be the new single? They’ve since published two more revolutions, only adding to the anticipation of #TCS4 and the apparent purple theme. Despite the hype surrounding their new music, many fans have been left bemused by a particular element of their social media accounts. The boys have changed their profile picture, but it’s not Alex and Drew, which we all know and love; a couple of ‘doppelgängers’ are posing as them! The lookalike of Drew, Ryan O’Flanagan (who’s appeared on American Vandal and New Girl), even appeared on stage during one of their recent Las Vegas performances. This marks The Chainsmokers’ first release since their third studio album, "World War Joy," which featured tracks such as "The Reaper" with Amy Shark, "P.S. I Hope You’re Happy" with Blink-182 and "Takeaway" with ILLENIUM and Lennon Stella. However, the boys did release music of some sort in 2020 – they scored the soundtrack for the romantic drama ‘Words On Bathroom Walls’ with composer Andrew Hollander.
