The jury may still be out on what people think about the Chainsmokers, but one thing is definitely clear, they know how to get special guests for their songs. To date, the twosome has managed to secure guest vocals from artists like Chris Martin of Coldplay, current pop star Halsey, and even hit the recording studio with blink-182 recently. Joining their growing list of special guests are now the guys from 5 Seconds of Summer.
On Thursday (Feb. 7), the Australian band and the New York-founded act released their joint song, “Who Do You Love,” following a day or so of teasing online. Listen to the almost four-minute, highly EDM-influenced tune above.
“Who Do You Love” appears to be a one-off single for the Chainsmokers as the track is not featured on their recently released sophomore effort, Sick Boy. The album consists of ten tracks that were released throughout 2018 prior to the record’s release date.
As for 5 Seconds of Summer, the band recently unveiled the acoustic version of their latest single, “Lie to Me.” The acoustic version of the song came a few weeks after the group unleashed the official music video for the original version of the song. “Lie to Me” is featured on the foursome’s recently released record, Youngblood.
Earlier this month, the band formally announced they had returned to the recording studio to begin working on the follow-up to Youngblood.
“Recording Luke vocals the other day with Linus & the band,” wrote drummer Ashton Irwin on Twitter.
“I love making music with these boys. Lots of special new partnerships on this new record we are making.”
No word on if they have a projected release time frame for the new album.
