‘So Far So Good,’ The Chainsmokers’ New Studio Album, Is Here: Stream It Now

So Far So Good is the first new album from The Chainsmokers in three years.

The 13-track album, which is the duo’s fourth studio album, is out 13th May, via Disruptor Records/Columbia Records. It follows the duo’s previously released singles ‘High,’ ‘iPad,’ and ‘Riptide.’ It comes after the duo’s 2019 album, ‘World War Joy’.

But, as Drew Taggart and Alex Pall of The Chainsmokers recently told Billboard, this new album was developed under quite different circumstances than much of their previous work. Rather than building albums while on the road, releasing one track at a time between tour stops, the pair announced an extended hiatus at the end of 2019 to give themselves more time to focus on music.

In January of 2020, the duo went on a two-week trip to Hawaii. The boys rented a house and got to work on some of the concepts that would become ‘So Far So Good’ with a group of song writing buddies. During writing retreats in Joshua Tree, California, New York and London, the guys assembled, then disassembled, lyrical and production parts hundreds of times, finally taking two years to complete the album.

So Far So Good’s tracks move away from the radio-friendly, indie-leaning dance to sounds of earlier singles like ‘Closer’ ‘Roses’ and ‘Don’t Let Me Down’ and toward music that mixes sing-along indie-pop and subtle, often profoundly textured electronic arrangements.
