Hardcore fans of The Chainsmokers have gotten the first part of an upcoming collaboration – sent in the form of a phone number.
Fans seemed confused when the duo first tweeted the number earlier Wednesday (July 17th), but they’ve since posted a video that explains the text idea via a fake conversation with Illenium and vocalist Lennon Stella. It turns out that messaging the number leads to a YouTube link teasing the collaborators’ forthcoming single “Takeaway.” The clip that can be found below features the musicians looking serious as they explore the breathtaking architecture of Heatherwick’s Vessel at Hudson Yards in New York City.
“Takeaway” was previously flaunted earlier this year by the NYC-based team at Ultra Music Festival and Illenium during EDC Las Vegas. Fans have anxiously awaited the recording’s drop and this visual sounds very much in line with The Chainsmokers’ usual sound. There is no word on when the track gets a full release, but stay tuned for more details.
