Kygo Stargazing EP

It’s been a great past few years for Kygo. Having started his music career primarily on remixes, the Norwegian producer has come a long way since releasing his first original song. Now that it’s been over a year since dropping his debut album, Cloud Nine, Kygo has finally shared his second ever full length project - a brand new EP titled Stargazing

This latest offering embodies the gentle, emotional sound Kygo has become known for while also expanding upon his signature blend of acoustic and electric production elements. Featuring his previously released hits “First Time” (Ft. Ellie Goulding) and “It Ain't Me” (with Selena Gomez), this 5-track EP contains multiple new originals as well as a special U2 x Kygo edit. Check out Kygo’s new Stargazing EP below and enjoy!

Kygo And Ellie Goulding Team Up For Chill New Single “First Time”

Kygo Ellie Goulding

Over the past few years, Kygo has become one of the most recognizable names within the electronic realm. Just last year Kygo released his debut album, Cloud Nine, a 15-track collection of work that featured songs outside of his usual tropical style, such as “I’m in Love” feat. James Vincent McMorrow.

For his most recent release, “First Time,” Kygo teamed up with an artist also known for her euphoric signature vibe: Ellie Goulding. The vocalist’s joyous vocals are the perfect match for Kygo, resulting in a breezy, chill track to kick off the summer with. “First Time” features an upbeat drop that utilizes digitally manipulated vocals and a tropical vibe that only Kygo could pull off so well. Listen to the track, out now on Ultra Records, below and enjoy!

Listen & Download Kygo's Debut Album "Cloud Nine"

Kygo Cloud Nine

It was a short 2 years ago that Norwegian artist Kygo was working on songs in his dorm room, premiering unofficial remixes of artists like Ed Sheeran and Marvin Gaye on TSIS. Fast forward to present day and the 23-year-old act has had hundreds of millions of streams across just about every platform, in addition to several chart-topping hits.

Today, his highly-anticipated debut LP, Cloud Nine, is live. The 15-track offering has been years in the making and features a handful of successful hits, including the album's leadoff single, “Firestone.” The tropical record features Conrad Sewell, a relatively unknown singer at the time who has since proven himself to be a successful lead artist with releases like "Start Again" and "Remind Me."

Kygo's exponential rise to fame also helped jumpstart the career of Parson James who is featured on "Stole The Show," which the two performed on 'The Ellen Show'. The list of collaborators on Cloud Nine is quite stacked, but in a way you wouldn’t expect. While the project does include notable vocal features by John Legend and Foxes, several of project's contributors are lesser known to the mainstream eye.

"Carry Me" on the LP stands out as one of the more pop-driven tracks and for good reason. The song features Los Angeles songwriter Julia Michaels who is behind some of the industry's biggest radio hits including Justin Bieber's "Sorry" and Selena Gomez's "Good For You."

Cloud Nine branches out into several genres outside of the tropical space that first brought Kygo into the spotlight. From "Not Alone" featuring RHODES to "Serious" featuring Matt Corby, listeners should prep themselves for a wide array of moods, energies and sounds, all while taking in the Norwegian's enveloping smooth quality.
