Music Shopping Spotlight: The Chainsmokers, ‘Memories’

The Chainsmokers, Memories...Do Not Open © ColumbiaThe Chainsmokers (‘Memories…Do Not Open’) spotlights new releases arriving April 7, 2017.  Joey Bada$$ and Father John Misty also drop new albums. 

Ah, the first music release date in April 2017 – Friday, April 7!  Overall, April opens with a nice assortment of new albums.  The problem is, unless Kendrick Lamar drops his new album on April 7, there isn’t a comparable effort to Ed Sheeran (÷), which kicked off March 2017.  Still, The Chainsmokers are “kind of a big deal” (Memories…Do Not Open).  After all, Drew and Alex have had a number of hits, going back to 2015.
