The Chainsmokers Scored New Movie ‘Words on Bathroom Walls’ and It’s Coming This Month

Since the beginning of this year, The Chainsmokers have been very quiet writing their new album. But finally we’ll be getting new music from them soon, in the form of a movie score.

The movie is named Words on Bathroom Walls and is based on the 2017 book of the same title by Julia Walton, about a high school boy who’s diagnosed with schizophrenia. The film, directed by Thor Freudenthal is out July 31 and stars Charlie Plummer, AnnaSophia Robb, Taylor Russell, Andy Garcia, Walton Goggins, and more.

The Chainsmokers have been working on the score for some time together with composer Andrew Hollander, which you can see in their vlog from September 2019. Don’t expect brand new radio ready releases from the artists as the score will audio built for the visual, not necessarily made for listening separately. However the trailer does include their track ‘Push My Luck’ from their latest album, so it’s possible we see some full fledged releases.

The film score won’t be the duo’s sole activity in July. The Chainsmokers are also slotted to play a drive-in fundraiser in the Hamptons on July 25, which will mark their first live performance since their self-imposed break from music and media. 

The film is stated to hit cinemas on July 31st, which may be difficult due to the current pandemic. It will likely run in limited cinemas, be pushed back or find a home through an online service. Whichever it may be, we’re excited to watch it and experience The Chainsmokers’ score.
