Internationally-acclaimed dance music powerhouse Galantis has joined forces with multi-platinum selling band Neon Trees on new single “Dreamteam” – available now via Big Beat Records alongside a Juan Fores Mena-directed visual starring Piiper as the focal point of an epic friends night out.
“Dreamteam” continues to usher in the hotly anticipated fourth Galantis album era, which will mark the first full-length since 2020’s Church. The single follows recently released tracks “Koala” which was declared “another dance hit” by American Songwriter and “BANG BANG! (My Neurodivergent Anthem)” which Rolling Stone praised as “an upbeat festival-ready banger.” The latter also exclusively premiered alongside candid statement from Christian Karlsson revealing his ADHD diagnosis and neurodivergent journey.
One of dance music’s most dynamic and in-demand live performers, Galantis has sold out countless venues around the world and has thrilled crowds across the global festival circuit. Next week will see the kick off of their Fall headline tour, including stops at Salt Shed in Chicago on November 22nd & 24th and Shrine LA Outdoors in Los Angeles on November 25th.

Galantis is the dance music project of Christian Karlsson (aka Bloodshy). Their RIAA gold-certified debut album Pharmacy reached No. 1 on the Billboard Dance album chart on the strength of gold-certified single “Peanut Butter Jelly” and 3x platinum certified smash “Runaway (U & I)” – the latter of which earned a GRAMMY nomination for “Best Dance Recording” – while 2017’s sophomore album The Aviary (featuring platinum-certified single “No Money”) saw a top 10 debut in 23 countries. The third Galantis album, 2020’s Church, featured the chart-topping gold-certified single “Faith” with country music icon Dolly Parton featuring Mr. Probz, which 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. Meanwhile, gold-certified collaborative single “Heartbreak Anthem” with David Guetta & Little Mix proved a global sensation, spending 10 weeks on the Billboard Global 200 chart and 13 consecutive weeks in the top 10 on the UK Official Chart. Galantis has received over 5 billion cumulative worldwide streams and over 1.8 billion video views to date.
Karlsson has been at the helm of Galantis since 2009 before officially debuting the project at 2014’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. His career has spanned across the musical genres of punk-rock, hip-hop and pop – including work as one half of acclaimed production duo Bloodshy & Avant and one third of indie pop band Miike Snow. Karlsson’s songwriting/production credits have included the likes of Madonna, KylieMinogue, Katy Perry and extensive work with Britney Spears (including “Toxic” which earned a GRAMMY for “Best Dance Recording” and her widely acclaimed 2007 album Blackout). As Galantis, he has crafted remixes for the likes of Coldplay, Selena Gomez, Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith & more. Declared “pop’s mastermind producer” by UPROXX, “eternally effervescent” by Billboard and “one of the most influential and untamed voices in modern music” by GRAMMY.com, the Swedish-born artist continues to evolve and push the boundaries of songwriting within the world of dance music and beyond.
