The Chainsmokers Release Album Track List, Reveals Collabs with Jhene Aiko & Florida Georgia Line
With the Friday, April 7th release date for The Chainsmokers’ debut album, “Memories: Do Not Open,” less than a month away, Drew Taggart and Alex Pall have offered fans a preview of what is to come on the record via the announcement of the album’s official track list, comprised of twelve songs.
Of the songs expected to appear on the album are “Paris,” and The Chainsmokers’ recent collaboration with U.K. rock band, Coldplay, “Something Just Like This.” Yet distributed among the newly advertised tracks slated for an April drop date are some other collaborations of noteworthy status; Jhene Aiko is featured on “Wake Up Alone,” and Florida Georgia Line on “Last Day Alive.” The vocalist of The Chainsmokers’ 2015 hit, “Until You Were Gone,” Emily Warren is likewise credited on two songs, “Don’t Say,” and “My Type.” French vocalist, Louane, once thought to be the feminine part on “Paris,”appears on the song “It Won’t Kill Ya.”
In a previous interview given prior to the conceptualization of “Memories: Do Not Open,” The Chainsmokers expressed their desire to craft a “complete” album that would “tell a story,” “an album is a big deal, not just a compilation of random singles, that’s how we see it. But if you all start making some noise for one…well,” The Chainsmokers wrote in a tweet posted to their Twitter account on September 6, 2016. Judging by the titles of the twelve songs completed for the album—all of which share a romantic tone—it seems The Chainsmokers have indeed compiled a record with a narrative.
