The Chainsmokers Promise to Share Their Song Making Process with Fans
Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall make up the band called The Chainsmokers. Originally, a simple production duo, the group produced the music and had other artists on vocals. In recent years, The Chainsmokers have changed direction, moving away from dance music and creating more emotional, deeper music. This change came when Andrew Taggart took on the role of lead singer.
Their newest song, “Somebody,” features verses from Taggart and a chorus from Drew Love. This song continues to show the constant innovation that The Chainsmokers are capable of.
Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart decided to offers fans an inside glimpse of the how the song was made on Facebook. The video is made up of several short clips of particular moments of the production process, but the pop duo promised to share a real time, more in-depth version of the video in the near future.
In the video, The Chainsmokers reveal that parts of the song were recorded for other songs, displaying how he corrected the pitch of the old vocals to patch the pitch of the rest of the song.
