Grammy Award-winning artist/producer duo : The Chainsmokers & producer : DJ ILLENIUM have released new single “Takeaway” featuring vocals from rising pop star and Columbia label-mate Lennon Stella.
The Chainsmokers have evolved into a dominating musical force with a diverse repertoire of songs that have led them to become one of music’s hottest recording artists. Comprised of Alex Pall and Drew Taggart, their signature sound deftly reaches across indie, progressive and pop realms and has seen them develop some of the biggest breakthrough songs over the course of the last few years.
The official music video for the song was directed by Jeremiah Davis, the video features all four artists and was shot at The Vessel at Hudson Yards in New York City. Speaking about the video, The Chainsmokers said, “We are so lucky to have had the opportunity to be one of the first artists to create a music video with The Vessel! We are from New York so to be a part of something that will be a huge part of New York City history is incredibly special to us. We also had to run up a ton of stairs in this video all day so we hope people appreciate that hahaha…”
