THE CHAINSMOKERES – ‘IPAD’

Closing off New Music Friday is The Chainsmokers with their second single of the year, iPad. Taking to Instagram on Thursday 10 March, the electro duo said they wrote the song when they felt they had no one to talk to.

“It wasn’t that I didn’t have anyone that would listen, but I had reached a level of cognitive dissonance that I felt was unexplainable. I don’t keep a journal so writing this song and others on this album is my opportunity to organise my thoughts,” they wrote on their Instagram page.

This electronic track is a standout release on our New Music Friday list.
