After Honda tapped “Walking On A Dream” for “The Dreamer” commercial, the track shot to the top of the Billboard/Clio Music Top Commercials chart (powered by Shazam)* with 297,000 Shazam tags in January 2015 the highest monthly total since the chart launched in December 2014 – and entered Billboard’s Hot 100.
Recently certified Platinum by the RIAA, “Walking On A Dream” is currently in the Top 5 of Billboard’s Alternative Songs chart. With upwards of 161 million streams worldwide, the song is a global hit. View Empire of the Sun performing “Walking On A Dream” live HERE.
In 2008, two of Australia’s leading musician/producers, Luke Steele (The Sleepy Jackson) and Nick Littlemore (Pnau), created a vision that seemed to come from an alternative reality – a post-apocalyptic psychedelic adventure known as Empire of the Sun. Their debut album, Walking on a Dream, sold more than a million copies worldwide and helped spearhead the then-burgeoning EDM movement. Empire of the Sun earned eight ARIA awards and two BRIT nominations.
The adventure continued with 2013’s Ice On The Dune. “Alive,” the first single from Ice On The Dune, topped Billboard’s Dance/Club Play Songs chart.“Wherever you dance this summer, you will be dancing to this record,” said Associated Press in an album review. “Everything about Empire of the Sun is larger than life: The band name, the futuristic stage personas, the Dune-inspired album art and – most importantly – the music,” said Rolling Stone.
2014 and 2015 were huge years for Empire Of The Sun with standout performances at numerous festivals, including Coachella, Ultra Music Festival and Governors Ball. The band’s latest U.S. tour culminated in September 2015 with a spectacular sold-out headline performance at Los Angeles’ legendary Hollywood Bowl in front of over 17,000 fans.
Steele and Littlemore are currently working on music for the third Empire of the Sun album, due for release in the fall of 2016.
