The Chainsmokers Unveil “Kanye”

The Chainsmokers have unveiled their brand new single “Kanye” featuring Siren.

The track follows up one of the year’s biggest songs and cultural phenomena, “#SELFIE.” However, it’s quite a departure from the cheeky, crossover club anthem that put Andrew and Alex on the map.

The Chainsmokers – #SELFIE

Provocative in both its name and stirringly gorgeous sense of melody, “Kanye” fuses Siren’s divine delivery and uplifting lyrics with The Chainsmokers’s entrancing and enigmatic production. Moreover, there’s a very special and ultimately inspiring message at the heart of this anthem. The word “Kanye” insinuates that only you can define what makes you individually happy. What other people think doesn’t matter, and do not let anyone take that happiness away from you. If you believe in yourself, anything is possible and no judging allowed!

Pall elaborates, “We look at the word ‘Kanye’ as an adjective. The song is about what it means to be like Kanye. It’s about just owning it no matter what you’re doing. Whether you’re on top of the world partying in a penthouse or you’re driving an old car playing your favorite song, it’s about enjoying the moment you’re in and feeling like you’re the king. You embrace that confidence. We didn’t want to do something to left field after ‘#SELFIE,’ but we wanted to show another side of ourselves. What Siren does is just beautiful, and we built the production around that. It gets the message across. Own your shit, be self-assured, and remain confident in everything you do.”

The duo is represented by 4AM. Dim Mak Records/Republic Records is excited for what’s to come from this dream team.
