The Chainsmokers released the lyric video for their new single “Setting Fires” featuring XYLØ today (November 10th).
The “Setting Fires” lyric video plays with that very concept by incorporating live action into the format. Rather than have the lyrics flash by in some type of animated way, skateboarders and the women who dig them hold up handwritten cardboard signs of the lyrics at first.
Things take a turn after the chorus, and the video becomes more literal. Those same women stand in front of a blazing fire and light their signs up. A fire dancer also performs with a sword, and a skateboarder rolls around the warehouse with his skateboard on fire. There’s even some intense fire breathing.
“Setting Fires” appears on The Chainsmokers’ new EP Collage.
