Why Don't We Returns New Song “Fallin'”
- American boy band Why Don't We returned with a new song “Fallin' from its nine-month hiatus.
The song samples “Black Skinhead” by Kanye West. The accompanying music video was directed by Isaac Rentz. It was written by Daniel Seavey, Corbyn Besson and Jonah Marais.
“Yeah, the Kanye drums, when we first were writing the song, just fit in perfectly with the group we were going for,” the band told Apple Music's Zane Lowe. “And it's hard to beat those drums in that specific sample, in that pocket of rhythm. I think it actually happened 'cause we were writing it and someone was like 'Oh, it sounds like it could be in this vibe' and played it.”
“And we were like 'Oh, what if we just got those in there?' And luckily for us, Kanye did clear it. He was actually the first to clear. And then we come to find out there's 15 other writers on the song, Daft Punk, but we did get it cleared.”
“That was amazing for us, the fact that they all were behind the song and cleared it and agreed with us using their drums was huge for us. It almost felt like they gave us their blessing in a way, it was like 'Whoa, this is crazy.'”
