World-renowned, Grammy-nominated hitmakers Galantis have joined forces with legendary country music star Dolly Parton on their uplifting new single ‘Faith’, featuring Dutch singer-songwriter Mr Probz. Stream here.
The explosive collaboration arrives with a feel-good music video directed by Dano Cerny, which sees Dolly take the wheel for a dance-packed bus ride to remember. Galantis recently appeared on The World’s Biggest Dance Show, hosted by BBC Radio 1 and syndicated across seven countries, to tease ‘Faith’ to an audience of over 18 million listeners. The duo also announced their forthcoming, third studio album “Church”, due for early 2020. The eagerly-anticipated album follows 2015’s “Pharmacy” and 2017’s “The Aviary”, which featured the platinum-selling Top 5 hit ‘No Money’.
Centred around a classic John Hiatt lyric, ‘Faith’ is an uplifting call for unity and hope, bundled in Galantis’ signature euphoric production. After an unexpectedly long-shot call to Dolly, which resulted in her saying ‘yes’ to the collaboration, Christian Karlsson immediately flew out to Nashville to cut the vocals in person with the legend herself.
On working with Dolly Parton, Christian said: “As a songwriter, I’ve always had such incredible respect for her work – and as ‘Faith’ and the message behind it started to take form, we just thought if there was ever a song to send to her, this would be it.”
Linus Eklöw added, “She has always been one of our biggest dream collaborations. We were so happy to have her bring her signature touch to the lyrics and have such a real collaborative experience with her.”
The past year has seen Galantis drop a steady string of singles, which amounted to the duo now having over 3 billion cumulative worldwide streams, 42 platinum records in over 18 countries, and over 1 billion video views to date.
Known for setting a new standard for songwriting in dance music, Galantis now look ahead with greater purpose for their forthcoming album “Church”. “It’s important for us to have meaning behind our music,” they said. “Our album “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’”.
