Electronic dance music duo The Chainsmokers will be back in Singapore for a show at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on Aug 21.

The pair - American DJs and producers Alex Pall and Drew Taggart - are behind some of the biggest hit singles in recent years.

Closer, their song from 2016 that features American pop singer Halsey, for example, has clocked more than one billion streams on Spotify and over 2.2 billion views on YouTube.

Other hit tracks include Something Just Like This, their 2017 collaboration with British band Coldplay, #Selfie (2014) and Paris (2017).

They have released two albums, Memories... Do Not Open (2017) and Sick Boy (2018), and won a Best Dance Recording Grammy Award for 2016 song, Don't Let Me Down.

Their third album, World War Joy, is due to be released some time this year and reportedly features collaborations with the likes of Australian pop rock band 5 Seconds Of Summer and American rockers Blink-182.
