Hear The Chainsmokers’ “Paris”
After teasing it for weeks, The Chainsmokers have released new single “Paris.” It’s a subdued piece of EDM-pop, relying more on guitars than synths, but it’s still that signature ‘smokers MOR sound. And it’s their first song without a feature since 2015’s similarly city-themed “New York City,” but like that one, there’s an uncredited female vocalist on the track.
UPDATE: Billboard confirms the uncredited singer is Emily Warren, who co-wrote their Daya collab “Don’t Let Me Down.” Warren also announced the look on Instagram.
They released it with the lyric video, which is essential for absorbing the powerful imagery of lines like “You look so proud standing there with the flower and the cigarette / Posting pictures of yourself on the internet.” The song is about Paris, but the visual takes place on a beach with a supermodel because nothing makes sense in 2017.
