The other night I caught The Chainsmokers great live performance with female vocalist Daya on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. Then like magic the next day, I received an email from Alex and Drew, the duo behind the Chainsmokers, personally telling me to listen to their new single “Don’t Let Me Down” again. They explained a story behind the song that told of how this track was entirely finished and then their computer crashed and they lost everything they recorded! (Reminder from the band: If you havent done that in a while, stop what you’re doing and go do it!) The Chainsmokers had to rebuild this song from scratch and the intensity behind every effort that went into the new production made their song better than it was before and greater than they ever expected!

It’s powerful.

About The Author

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter
