The Chainsmokers are back!
The boys have dropped their latest single, titled “Paris”, accompanied with a visually-appealing lyric video. Not only is this their first single in 2017, but it is also their first song that does not have a featured artiste as member Drew Taggart takes on the role of being the lead vocalist.
However, singer Louane, who was a contestant of “The Voice” in France, provided her vocals for the 2nd verse.
“Paris” will be featured in The Chainsmokers’ upcoming studio album that is set to release later this year under Columbia Records. The track reminisces a couple’s complicated relationship when they were in Paris.
“We were staying in Paris/ To get away from your parents/ And I thought ‘Wow, if I could take this in a shot right now, I don’t think that we could work this out’.”
Directed by Rory Kramer, the music video opens with a definition of Paris which reads, “1. a sentimental yearning for a reality that isn’t genuine; 2. a irrecoverable condition for fantasy that evokes nostalgia or day dreams.”
