Chainsmokers Tease Brand New Music: Look + Listen

On Thursday (1.06), The Chainsmokers took to social media to tease their new single, “High” courtesy of a nine-second video clip.

Accompanied by imagery of choppy, ocean waves, the caption reads “Who’s ready? #TCS4” along with a devil horn emoji. The duo’s marquee image on Twitter is now a purple banner, and their avatar on YouTube and Soundcloud is just a purple circle, suggesting the color motif for their new project.

With no official release date for “High,” the track serves as their first new music since 2019 and appears to be the first single from the duo’s upcoming fourth studio album. Available for fans to pre-save, the social media clip follows the American duo’s unlikely lo-fi cover of Bonnie Raitt’s 1991 heartbreak classic “I Can’t Make You Love Me,” which dropped on Monday (1.03.)

In February of 2020, the group’s Alex Pall and Drew Taggart announced a hiatus from social media, writing, “We are going to be taking some time to create our next chapter in music. We have never been more inspired and are already hard at work on TCS4 but we are going to be taking a break from social media (minus a few obligations) to give it the attention it needs.”

In July 2020, the Sony Music act performed a charity event in The Hamptons, which created headlines for not following social-distancing protocols and resulted in a $20,000 fine for the event’s organizers, In The Know Experiences and Safe In Sound.

The Chainsmokers’ last LP, World War Joy, was released via Disruptor/Columbia Records three year ago and to support the album, the group embarked on an extensive tour in the fall and winter of 2019.
