The Chainsmokers whip up Thanksgiving mix for BBC Radio 1
After a glistening halftime performance during the Nov 19 Monday Night Football game, the release of their latest track, “Beach House,” and their announcement of a forthcoming feature film that will provide a cinematic component for their 2017 single, “Paris,” it’s clear that The Chainsmokers have been hustling this year.
Yet, if there’s anything that the “Closer” hit-makers have learned in their time in the mainstream spotlight, it’s how to keep their momentum going at a steady and unimpeded pace. In the midst of their many musical engagements, The Chainsmokers still found time to cook up a Thanksgiving mix, just in time for the holiday.
As many prepared to pass the turkey and the stuffing, those who craved something new from The Chainsmokers would find their appetites satiated in the DJ duo’s debut mix on Annie Nightingale‘s BBC Radio 1 show early on Thanksgiving morning. A “hardcore” showing, in Alex Pall’s own words, the Thanksgiving mix melds cuts from The Chainsmokers’s catalogue with other electronic selections. The Chainsmokers alluded to a stockpile of impending new music during their guest appearance the BBC Radio 1 episode—news that won’t shock any Chainsmokers fans, given that the pair’s next album, Sick Boy, is slated to drop March 2019.
Listen to the mix, here.
