Alex and Drew of The Chainsmokers dropped a brand new single and surprise – it’s already stuck in our heads.

“Paris” is about something very personal to The Chainsmokers. It was inspired by a friend of the two who struggled with addiction and lived in a fantasy world with his girlfriend, while their lives were falling apart all around them. It’s also, in a more general sense, about the times when you are in one situation, but wishing you were in another. 

“We are really excited about this song because it feels like a really big step in our production and song writing. We tried to switch it up a bit and the song feels a lot more rhythmic and we pulled a lot of inspiration from bands we grew up loving.” – The Chainsmokers

The music video, which doubles as a lyric video, was directed by the duo’s long-time friend Rory Kramer, and features viral model Alexis Ren. Check it out below and grab “Paris” on iTunes or Spotify.

P.S. The boys have some major surprises for 2017 šŸ˜‰
