It’s most important day of the week: New Music Friday. With the overwhelming amount of tunes hitting the airwaves today, Dancing Astronaut has you covered with the latest edition of The Hot 25.
Above & Beyond kick off New Music Friday in fine fashion with their new single, “Distorted Truth.” Tommy Trash and i_o unleash their much-anticipated collaboration, “Let Me Go,” and Medasin returns with his first original of 2019, “Mr. Skitters.” Diplo and Octavian make an impeccable team on “New Shapes,” as do Feed Me and Rosie Doonan on “Feel Love.” Hardwell and Dannic unveil “Chase The Sun,” and Au5 rounds out his two-track Energize EP with “Activate.” The Chainsmokers bring another pop-inspired number via “Who Do You Love” with 5 Seconds of Summer, and David Guetta, Brooks, and Loote gear up for festival season with “Better When You’re Gone.” Quintino can’t be brought down in his new single, and Pixel Terror return to Monstercat with “Ultima.” Tisoki delivers a fresh remix of Party Favor‘s “Blame,” and Jay Hardway takes off into the atmosphere with “Aliens.” R3HAB joins forces with Icona Pop for “This Is How We Party,” and Darude and Sebastian Rejman craft a euphoric dance number in “Release Me.”
As each week brings a succession of new music from some of electronic music’s biggest artists, here’s a selection of tracks that shouldn’t be missed this NMF.
The Chainsmokers like to keep things dynamic, this time shaking things up on their latest, “Who Do You Love” featuring none other than Australian pop rockers, 5 Seconds of Summer. Drew Taggart and Alex Pall of The Chainsmokers had been teasing the new cut for some time, though the pair waited until the night before the release to mention the track would be a collaborative effort with the Aussie outfit. News of the collaboration comes hot off the heels of The Chainsmokers’ newly revealed JuiceWRLD joints, which are expected to start surfacing soon.
Ashton Irwin of 5 Seconds of Summer posted about collaborating with The Chainsmokers, saying, “It’s very important to me that we remain diverse in the songs we release and the boundaries that we can break for a modern rock band. When we first heard the chorus of ‘Who Do You Love,’ we believed it was our chance to collaborate in a way we hadn’t before.”
Vocals from 5 Seconds of Summer carry the introduction of the song, and a soul-grabbing chorus is one of the track’s high points. The Chainsmokers’ latest collaboration and the accompanying lyric video are both out now.

The Chainsmokers have been steadily teasing the release of new music since 2019 kicked off. After a monster year where The Chainsmokers grew with every release, 2019 looks to be even brighter than the landmark years which now lie in the past. One thing that helped The Chainsmokers redeem themselves in the eyes of critics
In a Jan. 31 tweet, the “Closer” duo teased the Twitter world with a photo of a computer folder titled “Juice WRLD Collabs” with the caption “So @JuiceWorlddd what’s good.”
The tweet was met with enthusiasm from fans, who seem to be embracing the apparent forthcoming joint efforts of the EDM duo and the Chicago-born rapper—particularly the fact that there seems to be more than one track. The tweet comes just a few days after The Chainsmokers promised the release of new music with “got some tunessssss coming,” so perhaps these Chainsmokers x Juice WRLD collaborations could see the light of day sooner rather than later.
Less than a day after releasing their first wave of artists, Tomorrowland has released its second wave of artists for the 2019 iteration of the powerhouse festival. The Tomorrowland organizers are planning on releasing sporadic waves of artists throughout the week, so for those who are either attending or considering attending the event, the festival’s social channels are the best way to keep up with the various artist drops throughout the week.

They have managed to perpetually place music lovers on their toes thanks to a wide spectrum of genre-spanning releases, including country music, pop, and dubstep collaborations, in addition to their feel-good electronic crossover releases. Drew Taggart and Alex Pall seemingly have another new track loaded in the relase cannon, as they recently tweeted out that they had a studio session with blink-182 that proved exceptionally fruitful.

In 2018, The Chainsmokers did a massive 180 in the eyes of many fans. While their debut album saw tons of commercial success, many of their OG fans were rubbed the wrong way that Memories: Do Not Open had more of a pop sound. The guys buckled down and found a way to please their
