Also in Glass Animals news, the band scored their first No.1 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week with “Heat Waves,” while breaking a new chart record along the way. Prior to reaching the top of the Hot 100, “Heat Waves” slowly climbed the pop chart for an incredible 59 consecutive weeks, breaking a record for the longest journey to No.1 (previously held by Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas is You).” Glass Animals’ most successful single to date, “Heat Waves” was initially released in June 2020, off the band’s third studio album, Dreamland.
Earlier this month, the single topped Billboard’s Global Hot 200 while finding similar success on the Top 40 and Hot AC Radio Charts. The track also peaked on Spotify’s Global Top 50 Chart in late January, as it amassed over a billion streams.
As for the entirety of Dreamland, the album packs in personal experiences, including an emotional bike accident involving the band’s drummer, Joe Seaward, in 2018. “The album felt really close to my heart…it’s the most personal record I’ve ever done,” frontman Dave Bayley told Songwriter Universe in 2021. The artist also spoke to the challenges of releasing an album, amid a global pandemic. “[There was] no guidebook for this. But at the same time, that fear basically drove us to be extra creative with how we presented…and released the record.”
