With the full-length release of World War Joy, The Chainsmokers conclude a sizzling campaign of album preceding singles. Members Alex Pall and Drew Taggart gave listeners a sizable sampling of World War Joy in the months leading up to the LP’s arrival, releasing six of its 10 songs preemptively.

Previous releases included The Chainsmokers’ collaboration with ILLENIUM, “Takeaway,” the Bebe Rexha-assisted “Call You Mine,” “Who Do You Love” with 5 Seconds of Summer, Ty Dolla $ign and bülow feature, “Do You Mean,” and “Push My Luck. That World War Joy would have a vocal-centric character was clear from these early singles, and the diversity of the artists who scored World War Joy cameos affirmed The Chainsmokers as one of the most continuously star-summoning acts in the dance-pop domain.

World War Joy brings streamers four brand new songs, “The Reaper,” “Family,” with Kygo, “See the Way,” featuring Sabrina Claudio, and The Chainsmokers’ long-awaited, blink-182-bolstered crossover, “P.S. I Hope You’re Happy.”

As the gargantuan hole in the electronic bedrock that is Avicii‘s death remains audibly agape, plans to honor him on behalf of his most ardent artist friends and collaborators are underway.

On December 5, 19 Avicii collaborators, a 30-part band, and some of the Swedish superstar’s most auspicious companions, like David Guetta, Nicky Romero, and Kygo, will coalesce at Stockholm’s Friends Arena to honor their fallen friend in performing a two-hour orison of his greatest hits. Organizers of the affair, which is to be sponsored by the recently established Tim Bergling Foundation, will be distributing the entirety of the net profits to a number of organizations that direct efforts towards mental health and suicide prevention. The eminent menagerie of vocal collaborators already locked in to perform include Aloe Blacc, Adam Lambert, and Rita Ora, just to name a few. More artists will be added to the lineup in coming months.

“Tim had plans for his music to be performed together with a large live band, and now we are realizing his dream and giving fans a chance to experience his music in this unique way,” said Klas Bergling, Avicii’s father, via a recent press release.

Tickets to the Avicii Tribute Concert for Mental Health Awareness go on sale September 5, at 10:00 am CET.  For more information about artists added to the lineup, check here. Ticket sales will go live here.

Kygo teams up with Riverdale star Vanessa Morgan for the official music video of their recent single together “Higher Love.” The track features vocals by Whitney Houston, who died in 2012. “Higher Love” served as a momentous release, considering it was the first record to feature Houston posthumously. The Houston estate reached out to the Norwegian producer, believing he was the right artisan to finish and release the track, a rework of Steve Winwood’s 1986 classic. The music video for the eminent rendition pays Houston homage by transporting viewers back to a vision of her golden era.

The visual follows a man as he breaks off from a group of friends as he instead eyes a group of dancers in ’80s hair, makeup, and clothing. Enamored, he walks into their practice studio only to find that he is now donning an epoch-appropriate outfit and ready to dance. He and Morgan tangle themselves in a surrounding group of dancers, who provide elaborate accents as the duo steals the show. Posters of ’80s-era Houston line the walls, as the camera traces them in a pan sequence. “Higher Love” is out now on RCA Records.

Earlier this summer, Kygo made his highly anticipated return to NYC during Pride Month to share a new live concept called UTOPIA. The event benefitted a number of LGBTQ charities and organizations, and with performances by Kiiara, Cirque du Soleil, JHART, Danny Verde, and more, the show proved to be one of the electronic highlights of the summer. The Jacob Javits Center was buzzing with energy as Kygo and company raised more than $110,000 in donations.

Kygo also debuted his posthumous Whitney Houston hit, “Higher Love” featuring at NYC Pride 20 years after the musical icon performed at the same event. “It was an honor to be a part of it,” said Kygo, “Love is love.” See a clip from UTOPIA below.

Galantis purvey pop leanings on ‘Roots,’ with Valerie Broussard

Linus Eklöw and Christian Karlsson of Galantis have teamed up with previous Kygo collaborator, Valerie Broussard for a new high-energy dance pop release “Roots,” Galantis’ fourth release of the year.

Broussard’s commanding vocals carry the song from the outset with plucky guitar synth dancing between her lyrics. The song welcomes Galantis back to their pop-directed dance roots with a light melody and a drop that enlists piano and blaring trumpets. “Roots” is a change of pace for the duo, who are most well known for their ability to create uniquely synthesized vocals.

“I’ve always considered myself a bit of a wanderer, and so it surprised me greatly when I started missing Los Angeles while I was away on tour. This song is my love letter to LA, a place I had once considered nothing more than a temporary home, but it’s also about any person or place that makes a life-long traveler want to put down roots,” Broussard says of her songwriting inspiration for the song.

Galantis have released a very distinct collection of releases this year, spanning a OneRepublic collaboration “Bones,” which has gone on to be featured on mainstream radio stations around the world, all of the way to a Yellow Claw collaboration, “We Can Get High.” “Roots” is out now on RCA Records.
