The Chainsmokers explain the story behind their latest single – Paris


Kicking off 2017 with a bang, artist/producer duo, The Chainsmokers recently revealed their brand new single – ‘Paris’.

The Chainsmokers first teased the song at their massive sold out show at Los Angeles Convention Center on December 30th, their biggest show ever played to date. While the song has received a great response, the song-writing process actually stems from a very personal connection for the duo.

The song is actually about something very personal. Its about a friend of ours who struggled with a serious addiction and over the course of this lived in this fantasy world with his girlfriend thinking life was great and they were just down for each other thinking they were living in this wonderful day dream of a life but in reality their lives were falling apart as well as the people around them. But the song in a more general sense is about those times when you are one place in one situation but imagine you are somewhere else. Like those times you were laying in bed staring at the ceiling dreaming up a different situation.

We both went to college and might as well put those degrees to use a bit, so we dug deep into our english classes and put this definition of what the song means:

Paris – A sentimental yearning for a reality that isn’t genuine. 2: An irrecoverable condition for fantasy that evokes nostalgia or day dreams.

So as you can see its a very special song for us. Drew even shows off a little rap flow in the second verse if ya check it… – The Chainsmokers
