The Chainsmokers have had so many hit songs, it seems like they have been around forever. Believe it or not, it has only been 3 years since The Chainsmokers first broke into the mainstream music scene. The group is made up of Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall and their hit songs consist of “Roses,” “Closer,” and “Don’t Let Me Down.”
Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall recently spoke to Forbes magazine about one of their newest songs “Sick Boy.” The song is all about the cultural shift in America. The song is constructed from the perspective of individuals from all over the country and talks about the changes that have happened the the country in the past year.
“We haven’t put out a song in nine months,” Taggart said. “Sick Boy” could be The Chainsmokers way of catching up with fans. The song is much darker than the previous songs of Taggart and Pall, and this is to be expected. “The next topic is a little bit darker,” Taggart explains.
Taggart told the interviewer that the darker themes are here to stay, at least for a while. “We’re going to keep them coming,” Andrew Taggart explained. However, Taggart said that music changes so fast, it may be hard to know what to expect.
The interviewer pushed The Chainsmokers for more information concerning songs that will be coming out in the future, but Taggart and Pall were pretty secretive when it came to new information. Taggart did mention that he was able to work with some very talented producers though.
“There’s some good ones,” Alex Pall said. “It’s not worth spilling the beans yet, but they’re all great.” The Chainsmokers wouldn’t say who would be assisting them on any upcoming tracks, but if their words are to be trusted, the tracks that resulted from their collaborations are sure to be a hit.
