The Dream is the new album from Mercury Prize-winning, multiple Grammy and BRIT Award-nominated band alt-J. Produced by long-time collaborator Charlie Andrew, The Dream is the band’s first new music since their acclaimed third album RELAXER, released in 2017
The Dream is an album of intrigue, beauty and humanity – a coalescence of everything that has made alt-J a global band with true staying power. True-crime inspired stories and tales of Hollywood and the Chateau Marmont rub shoulders with some of the band’s most personal moments to-date The album was created after a period of rest for the band following their seismic world tour in support of previous record RELAXER. It is a record that is the sound of a band growing as songwriters and storytellers.

Joe Newman (vocals, guitar), Gus Unger-Hamilton (keyboard) and Thom Green (drums) have released three studio albums that, between them, have sold in excess of two million copies and their songs have been streamed more than one billion times.
