Why Don’t We have returned with their brand new single “Fallin’“!
The band – Jack Avery, Corbyn Besson, Zach Herron, Jonah Morais and Daniel Seavey – just dropped the first new song in over eight months.
Why Don’t We‘s new track actually samples beats from Kanye West, and they shared that he actually did clear them to use it.
“Yeah, the Kanye drums, when we first were writing the song, just fit in perfectly with the group we were going for,” the guys 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.’”
