It’s been a quiet year for Alex Pall and Drew Taggart of The Chainsmokers, who went dark on social media on February 24th 2020 after posting that they’d be taking time to create their “next chapter in music”. The duo seems to be working on their fourth studio album, which they’ve teased simply as ‘TCS4’ on their official (and now all purple) website, along with a phone number fans can text for updates. 
 
Even if the two chose to do absolutely nothing in 2021, it’s not to say they haven’t earned it. Their single ‘Closer’ with Halsey went 12-times platinum in the States last April, making it one of only four tracks to have accomplished that feat (among them are Eminem and Rihanna’s ‘Love the Way You Lie’ and Justin Bieber and Ludacris’s ‘Baby’, for reference).
 
Fiending for a Chainsmokers fix right now? Tune into their monthly BPM radio show, Nice Hair. Pall and Taggart kick off the first half of every episode with their signature brand of EDM-fuelled house music and welcome emerging stars to shine in the latter segment. Recent guests include Kito, Duke & Jones and Aviella, and the vibes are on-point.
