Alex Pall Explains his time Spent with Halsey and Gives his Opinion on Andrew’s Singing

Unlike The Chainsmokers other songs, where they only handled the production and songwriting side of things, “Closer features vocals from one of The Chainsmokers. This not only marks Taggart’s debut to the world of singing, but it means The Chainsmokers are open to drastic changes.

Eventually, the interviewer asked Alex Pall what it was like working with a talented singer like Halsey. “She’s incredible,” Alex said. Alex went on to explain that Halsey was at the top of their list for who they wanted to work with last year. “She’s a very cool and unique artist.”

“We work with songwriters too but we write the songs with them,” Alex explained, after being asked about The Chainsmokers singing in their own songs. Alex told the interviewer all about The Chainsmokers writing process. He said sometimes they sit down and write the entire song out, sometimes they are merely giving direction to the songwriters, telling them exactly what kind of message they want to portray.

Alex called the decision to have Taggart on vocals a step in the right direction. “The song itself is something that {Andrew Taggart] and our buddy wrote on our tour bus,” he explained.
