The Chainsmokers' 'Honest' New Single
The Chainsmokers have tailored their electro-ballad 'Honest' for a radio release.

The Chainsmokers take a trip down memory lane and revisit childhood memories in the lyric video for “Young.” EDM’s top duo recently announced that they are releasing the heartfelt “Honest” as their next official single, but it seems they have another track off their debut LP to promote first. “Don’t worry, my love, we’re learning to love, but it’s hard when you’re young,” Drew Taggart croons over the alt-influenced productions of Alex Pall.

The visual makes use of baby photos and footage from earlier performances contrasted with moments captured on their recently completed Memories Do Not Open Tour. As the track fades out, a collage of the photos transforms into a black and white photo of the pair looking back on their pasts. The lyric video was a collaboration with filmmaker and photographer Rory Kramer, who sourced the archived footage and photos from Alex and Drew’s family and friends.

They thanked him for his work on the project in a series of tweets. The Chainsmokers also reflected on how far they’ve come in their career and took the opportunity to thank anyone involved in their development. “We can’t watch this video and not help but think how grateful we are for our lives and everyone who has helped steer us along this journey,” Alex and Drew said. Check out the nostalgia-inducing video below and see if you can identify who is who in some embarrassing childhood pics.
