EARLIER // SEPTEMBER 19:
The Chainsmokers are recording with the big boys.
It’s safe to say The Chainsmokers are bonafide music superstars. They’re sitting pretty at No. 1 on the Hot 100 for a third week with their Halsey-assisted song “Closer,” but there’s no rest for the willing. The EDM duo made up of Alex Pall and Drew Taggart are busy crafting new tunes for a studio album, and it could feature collaborations from Coldplay’s Chris Martin, OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder and possibly U2’s Bono.
The guys are documenting their feats onto SnapChat. Here they are with Tedder, who described the studio session as one of the most successful he’s had in a minute. Bono makes a surprise appearance towards the end.
The duo were also star struck during their time with Martin. Pall records himself freaking out.
And for the sake of consistency, the duo are teasing new music during their recent shows. Here’s the latest stomping electro-tinged track.
See you at the top of the charts, gentlemen!
