Fresh off two massive, sold-out New Year’s Eve shows at Chicago’s famed venue Aragon Ballroom, the internationally-acclaimed Swedish duo Galantis kicks off 2019 with the release of a new single “Bones” featuring none other than the chart-topping, GRAMMY-nominated band OneRepublic. The track starts to build acoustically before truly taking flight in true Galantis fashion. Maybe that’s OneRepublic’s lead vocalist Ryan Tedder’s collaborative element rubbing off on the duo, but one thing’s for sure: “Bones” is destined to appeal to fans of both artists as it rockets up the charts! The song doesn’t lie when you hear the lyrics, “I feel it in my bones”– LISTEN HERE!
“It was an incredible experience working with OneRepublic and Ryan on this song. He has such a legendary voice and we’ve always been big fans of his songwriting, so connecting with him on ‘Bones’ came so naturally to us. This is the first Galantis music of 2019 and we can’t wait to show you what else we’ve been working on!”- Galantis
“Bones” is the first taste of an eventful 2019 for Galantis. The duo is riding high on a string of recent hits, with their latest “San Francisco” (feat. Sofia Carson) still gaining ground, along with “Emoji”, which was released in November.
