It's been a little over seven months since it was revealed that The Chainsmokers would be releasing a new album. Since then we have received five of the expected 10 tracks to be featured on World War Joy. Today we get the sixth, "Push My Luck."
The single follows the emotional vibe of the rest of the album thus far. The duo, consisting of Drew Taggart and Alex Pall, have the art of millennial romance storytelling down to a science at this point. The lyrics speak to the internal struggle one has when they are pursuing a new relationship. The production is a downtempo pop crossover with a subtle future bass feel to it.
"Push My Luck" follows behind "Who Do You Love" with 5 Seconds of Summer (5SOS), "Kills You Slowly," "Do You Mean" featuring Ty Dolla $ign and bülow, "Call You Mine" featuring Bebe Rexha, and "Takeaway" with Illenium and Lennon Stella. The duo are currently on the World War Joy fall tour with support from 5SOS and Stella. It was reported that the album will be released in full by the close of 2019 so the last four tracks should be coming out shortly.
