Illenium’s new album, Ascend, due August 16th on Astralwerks

Grammy Award-winning artist/producer duo The Chainsmokers & producer/DJ ILLENIUM have released new single “Takeaway” featuring rising pop star Lennon Stella. The track, available via Disruptor Records/Columbia Records, is available digitally.

The official music video for the song is also available. Directed by Jeremiah Davis, the video features all four artists and was shot at The Vessel at Hudson Yards in New York City. Speaking about the video, The Chainsmokers said, “We are so lucky to have had the opportunity to be one of the first artists to create a music video with The Vessel! We are from New York so to be a part of something that will be a huge part of New York City history is incredibly special to us. We also had to run up a ton of stairs in this video all day so we hope people appreciate that hahaha…”

“Takeaway” follows the release of The Chainsmokers’ most recent single “Call You Mine” featuring Bebe Rexha, which has accumulated over 175 million global streams to date. Both tracks are included on The Chainsmokers’ ongoing building album, World War Joy, along with previously released songs “Do You Mean” featuring Ty Dolla $ign and bülow, “Kills You Slowly” and “Who Do You Love” featuring 5 Seconds of Summer, which hit Top 10 at Pop Radio. The album will continue to build one song at a time over the course of 2019.

Fans can also catch The Chainsmokers live on their massive World War Joy North American headlining arena tour this fall. 5 Seconds of Summer will join all dates along with Lennon Stella, who is opening the show.
