AMSTERDAM, January 25, 2019 – Sultan + Shepard are known all over the world for their ability to give a sublime twist to esteemed records or theme songs, and they’ve just emerged with another sterling example. Today, the Grammy nominees released ‘American Dream’, which samples the soundtrack of Academy Award winning film ‘American Beauty’.
Drawing inspiration from the main theme and empowering message of ‘American Beauty’, Sultan + Shepard’s brand-new single is the sonic equivalent of any clubber’s ‘American Dream’. Bearing all the hallmarks of a track that sticks for life, this amazingly synergistic instrumental comes very close to absolute club-scented perfection.
Grammy nominees and frequent Beatport charters, Sultan + Shepard have collaborated with a range of top-tier artists, such as Tiësto, David Guetta, Ed Sheeran, Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars and Coldplay to name a few. As Canada’s well-known dance music force and one of the biggest duos in the industry, they effortlessly bridge the gap between dance music and pop, which landed them the Canadian songwriters SOCAN Music Award for International Song Of The Year in 2013 for ‘Bad’, the multi-platinum single they co-wrote alongside David Guetta, Showtek and VASSY. Moreover, they spent six weeks atop the U.S. Mediabase Airplay chart and racked up a JUNO award nomination and over 23 million streams on Spotify with ‘Almost Home’ (with Nadia Ali).
