Following a two-year break from touring and releasing music, and nearly being replaced by two new guys, Grammy Award-winning and Billboard Chart topping artist/producer duo The Chainsmokers have returned to unveil their highly anticipated new single “High” today.
The song, which was co-written and co-produced by Alex and Drew, launches a new musical era for the band and kicks off the journey towards their upcoming fourth full-length album.
The song’s official music video has also premiered today and follows the guys to death-defying heights as Drew chases his unattainable significant other through several surreal scenarios, and showcases navigating through a world where love is always fleeting.
The band has also said of the single, “The song perfectly captures the spirit of today’s relationships, the lengths we will go for someone we love, and the lies we tell ourselves to continue on unhappily. However, underlying these dark and often contentious lyrics is a production that feels celebratory because we all know at the end of the day, we never listen to advice, we do what feels best for ourselves and keep telling ourselves it will be different this time.”
The Chainsmokers will perform “High” live for the first time ever during the Los Angeles Rams vs. San Francisco 49ers NFC Championship Game Halftime Show Presented by Audi this Sunday at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, CA. The game kicks off at 3:30pm PT / 6:30pm ET, will be broadcast on FOX, and marks the first time in NFL history that a stadium that will host the Super Bowl is also hosting a Championship Game two weeks prior.
Over the last few years, the band took their time to write and record their fourth album, while also focusing on philanthropy and other entrepreneurial endeavours such as their venture fund, Mantis, and their TV/Film production company, Kick The Habit. Stay tuned for more soon from The Chainsmokers.
