Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart Explain Their Future; Elaborate on Future Concert Experience

In a recent interview, Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart talked about their band, The Chainsmokers, and the evolution of the group.


Andrew Taggart, prior to joining The Chainsmokers, was going to college in Maine and working on the side as a DJ. He was also interning at Interscope Records. A friend of Alex Pall’s manager mentioned that Pall’s previous partner left him and he believed that Taggart would be the perfect addition to the group.


Alex Pall was working as a DJ in New York City. Music had always been a hobby of his, and he had finally created it into a career when his partner called it quits. Pall’s manager introduced him to Andrew Taggart, and the two began making music that they would soon be famous for.


Together, Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart have created almost countless hit songs. Some of their songs include “Closer,” “Paris,” and “#Selfie.” After the release of “Closer,” as a part of their media tour, they stopped by Interview Magazine to discuss their future plans. Alex Pall also talked about Halsey, who is the featured artist on “Closer.”

“She’s incredible,” Pall said in reference to Halsey. “Halsey was number one on [our list of wanted collaborations.] Alex Pall had nothing but positive words for Halsey. He also called her cool, a unique artist, and complimented her singing voice.


The song “Closer” also marked the first time The Chainsmokers had an official lead singer. Andrew Taggart took over that role for the band, and going forward, The Chainsmokers will feature even more vocals from Andrew Taggart.


This change will also bring positive change to their live show, according to The Chainsmokers. Fans of The Chainsmokers will no longer be subjugated to unusual concert experiences. For example, because The Chainsmokers relied on guest vocalists to provide the lyrics to their music it was impossible to bring all of them on tour. This resulted in their vocals being emitted from speaker systems. Now Andrew Taggart can take over their roles, eliminating the need for the speaker system.
