Kygo releases star-studded album “Golden Hour” on 29th May
Global superstar, producer and DJ, Kyrre Gørvell-Dahll (aka Kygo), has already released “Lose Somebody” with OneRepublic. The track will be featured on Kygo’s upcoming third album “Golden Hour” out May 29th via Sony Music International/Ultra Records/RCA Records. “Lose Somebody” is the fifth release from “Golden Hour” following “Freedom” with Zak Abel, “I’ll Wait” with Sasha Sloan, “Like It Is” with Zara Larsson and Tyga, and “Higher Love” with Whitney Houston.
“Higher Love” has more than 651 million audio and video streams combined and charted at Top 40 radio. It is a cover of the 1986 Stevie Winwood classic. The Whitney Houston estate presented Kygo with the archival recording of Whitney’s version, which was previously released as a Japan-only bonus track on her “I’m Your Baby Tonight” physical album in 1990. Upon hearing the Whitney track, Kygo raced into the studio, thrilled to be given the opportunity to make music with one of the greatest female vocalists of all time.
“Higher Love” was written by Winwood, Will Jennings (“My Heart Will Go On”) and produced by Kyrre Gørvell-Dahll and original producer Narada Michael Walden. The song has been certified Platinum ion the UK for sales of more than 600,000 copies and a Gold certification in the US for sales for more than 500,000 units sold. “Like It Is” has performed well gaining high chart positions across Europe, while “I’ll Wait” has become the forth top ten hit in Norway preceding the album. “Freedom” with Moroccan singer Zak Abel is currently flying high so there is great anticipation for this new collaboration with OneRepublic.
