Alex Pall talks influences and new album details for The Chainsmokers

Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart sat down with Mathias Rosenzweig in May of 2016 to discuss their new album and how The Chainsmokers got to be where they are today. The Chainsmokers are rather unique in the DJ genre as they sing original songs on their albums. Pall speaks in the interview about his early influences living in New York City and wanting to devote all his time to pursue his passion as a DJ. He talks about meeting his current partner Taggart through his then and still current manager and how the two hit it off and almost immediately decided to work together and pursue their dreams together.

Pall talks about how they worked on their first album constantly talking about their album and the direction that they wanted it to go. Pall speaks about how even in their biggest dreams they could not imagine everything that has happened today.

Pall then goes on to speak about how they work to create their songs and how different it is in the DJ world for them to not only write their own lyric but to sing them on the tracks as well. He talks about how some of their songs they write the whole thing while others they use songwriters but they take charge of the ideas behind the songs. How they see the album as a concept and work to maintain a cohesive theme through the whole thing. He talks about how great it was to work with Halsey for their duet on their new album and how happy they were to be able to collaborate with her

From reading the interview you can see how Pall and Taggart work well together to create their music and put a lot of time and effort into it so that their fans get the best result from their efforts. They seem to be truly appreciative of everything they have been able to do and all of their fans around the world.
