Fans of Galantis have many new things to look forward to, as the Swedish duo just announced that a new album and single are on the way. The duo will release ‘True Feeling’ on July 12 alongside the pre-order and pre-save for their new album, The Aviary, which will be released on September 15. If the snippet preview they included in their Facebook announcement is any indication, it looks like another uplifting banger is on the way. The teaser contains a steel drum melody with a pumping bassline hidden under a low-pass filter, and despite how brief this snippet is, it already sounds like the perfect summer jam.
Galantis, comprised of Swedish producers Christian Karlsson and Linus Eklöw, is perhaps best known for their 2014 hit ‘Runaway (U & I)’ as well as their 2016 track ‘No Money.’ The Aviary will be their sophomore album release, coming two years after the release of their debut album, Pharmacy. In the past several months, they have had a string of single releases, including ‘Pillow Fight,’ ‘Rich Boy,’ and ‘Hunter.’ According to their Facebook announcement, the new album will be a culmination of their new music from over the past year, suggesting these recent singles may be making an appearance on the album. If the rest of their album sounds anything like these singles, we can expect plenty of more irresistibly-catchy hits.
The album will arrive mere weeks after Galantis’ performance at Electric Zoo, which you can get tickets for here. They also have other various festivals and tour dates coming up—check out the dates and purchase tickets for those at their official website.
