Galantis Releases New Album ‘Church’ + Capsule Collection + Tour Dates
Internationally-acclaimed duo Galantis have released their highly anticipated third studio album Church – available now via Big Beat Records. The 14-track collection arrives today with a passionate dance-packed video for the collaborative track with Hook N Sling, “Never Felt A Love Like This” featuring Dotan.
Church takes listeners on a euphoric sonic journey, with the title extending beyond the words’ surface – rather tapping into broader senses of community and inspiration. “It’s important for us to have meaning behind our music” explained Galantis. “‘Church’ doesn’t necessarily refer to a building or specific religion, but instead to people banded together in similar belief for a better humanity. Whether it’s advocating peace, change, or just lifting each other up – that is our ‘Faith’ and ‘Church.’”
The duo’s first new album in three years, Church features Galantis’ explosive single “Faith” with country music icon Dolly Parton featuring Dutch singer-songwriter Mr. Probz. Praised as “a life-affirming dancefloor jam” by Entertainment Weekly upon release, “Faith” saw a #1 debut on Billboard’s Dance/Electronic Chart before quickly reaching #1 on the Dance/Mix Show Airplay Chart where it remained for 5 weeks. The single has amassed over 33 million streams and over 6 million music video views, in tandem with an outpouring of support from Rolling Stone, Good Morning America, Entertainment Tonight, NPR, Huffington Post & more. The track listing also includes the duo’s blockbuster collaborations with OneRepublic (“Bones”), Passion Pit (“I Found U”) and Yellow Claw (“We Can Get High”), among new standout tracks “Never Felt A Love Like This” with Hook N Sling featuring Dotan and “Hurricane” with John Newman. Following the album’s surprise announce last weekend, Galantis also shared lyric videos for “Steel,” “Unless It Hurts” and “Stella” earlier this week counting down to release.
Galantis is poised for an incredible year ahead with their headline Church of Galantis tour kicking off next week with back-to-back performances at Brooklyn, NY’s Avant Gardner on February 14th & 15th, continuing through April with a final stop at Morrison, CO’s legendary Red Rocks Amphitheatre on April 24th (tickets available now via ChurchOfGalantis.com). The duo has also announced their upcoming collaboration with Swedish streetwear brand WeSC for an exclusive capsule collection, arriving in stores August 2020.

Setting a new standard for songwriting in dance music, Galantis is a collaborative project between Christian Karlsson (aka Bloodshy, one-third of Miike Snow) and Linus Eklöw (aka Style of Eye). Their debut album Pharmacy reached No. 1 on the Billboard Dance album chart on the strength of RIAA gold certified single “Peanut Butter Jelly” and platinum certified smash “Runaway (U & I)” – the latter of which earned GRAMMY nominations for “Best Dance Recording” and “Best Remixed Recording” – while their 2017 sophomore album The Aviary (featuring platinum certified single “No Money”) saw a top 10 debut in 23 countries. The duo have received over 3 billion cumulative worldwide streams, and over 1 billion video views to date.
The story of Galantis started back in 2009. Working as Bloodshy, Karlsson’s songwriting collaborations have included Madonna, Kylie Minogue, Katy Perry and Britney Spears (whose “Toxic” earned a GRAMMY for “Best Dance Recording”). After reaching out to Eklöw (who produced Icona Pop’s hit single “I Love It” as Style of Eye) to remix Miike Snow’s “Animal,” the two continued to collaborate until ultimately Galantis was born. Following their blockbuster performance debut at 2014’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, the duo quickly rose to become one of dance music’s most dynamic and in-demand live performers.
