Alok Teams Up With The Chainsmokers & Mae Stephens for New Song “Jungle”
Brazilian DJ Alok teamed up with American DJ duo The Chainsmokers, and British singer-songwriter Mae Stephens to release a new song “Jungle” on September 22, 2023.
This marks the first time Alok, The Chainsmokers and Mae Stephens have worked together.
Alok first performed the song at Neversea Festival in Romania. Followed by, he performed the track with The Chainsmokers at Tomorrowland in Boom, Belgium in July.
The track was written by Andrew Taggart, Alex Pall, Alok, Gustav Nyström, OHYES, Rasmus Budny, Mae Stephens, BOSS, Hannah Wilson and Ollie Green. Produced by The Chainsmokers, Alok, Gustav Nyström, OHYES and Rasmus Budny.
Alok said of the song, “Jungle has been in the works with The Chainsmokers for over a year now and I’m glad we finally found the right mixture. The addition of Mae was a perfect fit and the response we got premiering it at Tomorrowland in Belgium told us we were on to something special. I can’t wait for everyone to hear the final product and to perform it all over the world.”
- The Chainsmokers said, “We couldn't be more excited to be collaborating with Alok and Mae respectively. We have been friends and following Alok’s work for years and always admired his shows and have been trying to find the right record for over 4 years. We were both picky because we wanted to make a record we could both perform at the biggest shows but also something that lent itself to a fan outside of the festivals. Mae is also just a brilliant up and coming artist and she absolutely nailed the vocal. Hopefully like Alok we will have 1,000,000 ppl at our future shows thanks to this collaboration.”
Mae Stephens said, “I never imagined I would be working with the Chainsmokers and ALOK this time last year. As a starting artist I never imagined anything like this would happen. But they are so kind and it has been so awesome to be a part of this song and the video! The guys are amazing and performing with them was one of the best moments of my life.”
