The Fray lead singer Isaac Slade and guitarist Joe King were added to the credits after "Closer" drew comparisons to the band's 2005 hit, "Over My Head (Cable Car)
." Joe King told ABC Radio
that as soon as The Chainsmokers' clocked the similarities between the two songs they reached out to him and Isaac Slade. "They wanted to just work it out before the song came out," he explained. "So...there was no friction or tension. And [I] totally get it, it happens a lot, and unintentionally... So it's all good."
King added that not only does he love "Closer," his daughters do too. "All their friends listen to it, and now I'm like the cool dad," he laughed. "So, yeah, it's great!"
