The Chainsmokers extend Mallrat's 'Wish On An Eyelash'

Multi-talented artist and performer MALLRAT today delivers her surprise collaboration with American electronic duo The Chainsmokers. After teasing the release on socials, the new version of the viral, fan favourite ‘Wish On An Eyelash’ is out now.

Of the release, Mallrat — aka Grace Shaw — shares "The original Wish On An Eyelash is a short, one minute introduction to my album and was never promoted as a single - but there must be something a bit magic about it, because in the last few months it has stood out as something that really resonates with people and now has a life of its own. 

A few weeks ago I was completely taken by surprise when I logged on to Twitter to see The Chainsmokers had remixed the song out of pure love for it - we had never met or talked! For something so big to happen organically like this is really special and really rare. I am so excited for this interpretation of my track to be an introduction to a whole new audience. Thank you to The Chainsmokers."

The collaboration arose after The Chainsmokers shared their love for ‘Wish On An Eyelash’ online“Made a lil remix of @lilmallrat wish on an eyelash. The song is too good to only be 40 seconds long.” Mallrat replied and sent them the stems. 

Three weeks later, The Chainsmokers shared a cut of the version on a recent social post, stating "I've listened to this song by @lilmallrat everyday and I love it so much but it’s only :58 long so we did a little thing and made it longer. enjoy :) love you @lilmallrat".

Beginning as a bedroom project in her native Brisbane, Mallrat has evolved from cult favourite to beloved star. Channeling fears, hopes and obsessions into lyrics, her songs have become anthems for young people. With combined streams topping 300 million, she has become a beacon the Australian music industry will eagerly follow. Her trio of early EPs – Uninvited (2016), In The Sky (2018) and Driving Music (2019) – were documents of an artist following an upwards trajectory.
Earlier this year, Mallrat released her critically acclaimed debut record Butterfly Blue which debuted at #2 on the Australian Albums Charts and #6 on the ARIA Albums Chart
