Empire Of The Sun release their debut album Walking On A Dream on Astralwerks today.
The electro- psychedelic project led by Luke Steele, the enigmatic wunderkind behind Australia’s The Sleepy Jackson and Pnau’s Nick Littlemore has already reached Platinum status at home in Australia and has been a chart hit worldwide.
The title track “Walking on a Dream” will be iTunes ‘Single of the Week” this week. Fans can download the track for free starting today.
The track, which Rolling Stone has called “an insanely catchy electro-pop tune”, will also be featured on tonight’s episode of 90210. The show airs on the CW Tuesdays at 9pm Eastern / 8pm Central. For more info on the music featured on the show click here
In addition, “Walking on a Dream” is heating up at Specialty Radio and is currently #5* on the FMQB Singles Chart.
Exotic, lavish, larger-than-life, Empire Of The Sun brings together these two unlikely collaborators from Australian pop. Their friendship which Luke describes as “this fireball of electricity”, eventually resulted in Walking On A Dream – a bold, visionary and brilliant album, which manages to sound exhilaratingly contemporary, audaciously forward-looking, yet also curiously archaic all at once. From Nick and Luke’s collective unconscious arose a rare marriage of rock and electronica, immediacy and depth, futurism and tradition, hi-tech production and creative spontaneity, pop melody and the cinematic.
The video for “Walking On A Dream” has received over 3.8 million YouTube views. The fantastic video, filmed in Shanghai can be seen here:
