With the full-length release of World War Joy, The Chainsmokers conclude a sizzling campaign of album preceding singles. Members Alex Pall and Drew Taggart gave listeners a sizable sampling of World War Joy in the months leading up to the LP’s arrival, releasing six of its 10 songs preemptively.
Previous releases included The Chainsmokers’ collaboration with ILLENIUM, “Takeaway,” the Bebe Rexha-assisted “Call You Mine,” “Who Do You Love” with 5 Seconds of Summer, Ty Dolla $ign and bülow feature, “Do You Mean,” and “Push My Luck. That World War Joy would have a vocal-centric character was clear from these early singles, and the diversity of the artists who scored World War Joy cameos affirmed The Chainsmokers as one of the most continuously star-summoning acts in the dance-pop domain.
World War Joy brings streamers four brand new songs, “The Reaper,” “Family,” with Kygo, “See the Way,” featuring Sabrina Claudio, and The Chainsmokers’ long-awaited, blink-182-bolstered crossover, “P.S. I Hope You’re Happy.”
