Glass Animals Release Special ‘Dreamland: Real Life Edition’ Out Now

“Back in 2020, we had this delicately constructed, intricate plan to launch Dreamland with a bunch of special shows, signings and real-life events. Then… we got spanked by the pandemic, and we had to tear our plan in half. I was pretty damn sad for a bit, but eventually the support from everyone on the web was so great that it pulled me out of my mind-hole, and I realised we could make a new plan… One based on the magnificent wonder that is the internet. We did that, and it was absolutely wicked, but I still feel like we missed out on the IRL stuff. So, we thought we’d just have another go of it. This is our chance to do some of the things that were in our original plan, for the fans who have been there with us every step of the way,” says Glass Animals’ Dave Bayley.

On the two year anniversary of critically acclaimed third album Dreamland, record breaking BRIT and Grmmmy Award nominated, Billboard Music Award winning global sensations Glass Animals today release their special Dreamland: Real Life Edition for fans who have been on this incredible journey with the British band who have taken world by storm. Dreamland is the album that brought us the global smash hit “Heat Waves”, which continues to break records by becoming the third-longest charting song on the Billboard Hot 100 of all time, spending 80 weeks in the charts, just after The Weeknd’s Blinding Lights (90 weeks) and Imagine Dragons’ “Radioactive” (87 weeks). The band now has over 5 billion global streams and 38 million monthly listeners, but it’s live where Glass Animals come alive, gaining critical acclaim globally for their high-octane colossal performances, having stormed their biggest ever stages at Glastonbury, Splendour in the Grass Festival, and Lollapalooza. To celebrate Dreamland: Real Life Edition, the band will play special Dreamland.IRL shows at New York’s Brooklyn Mirage on August 8th & 9th and at London’s Village Underground on August 25th, where the story of Dreamland began. In beautiful circularity, Village Underground was the last venue Glass Animals played before the pandemic hit, and they have since sold over 262 thousand tickets in the US last year alone, including their most iconic venue yet with two sold-out nights at Colorado’s Red Rocks in June, where artists including Led Zeppelin and The Beatles have performed.
