Out today on Spotify and iTunes (Sony Music International/Ultra Music), “Firestone (Feat. Conrad)” is the long-awaited debut single from the much-loved tropical house producer and DJ KYGO.
Following a collection of wildly popular remixes for artists which have amassed a staggering 100 million plus plays on Soundcloud over the last 18 months (Marvin Gaye, Ellie Goulding, Coldplay), Kyrre Gørvell-Dahll, a.k.a. KYGO, has quickly made a name for himself as one of the most promising new artists for 2015.
Now, having recently returned from SOLD OUT ‘Endless Summer Tour’ in North America, the 23-year-old Norwegian wunderkind delivers his debut single “Firestone feat. Conrad.”
The track, produced by KYGO, features the soaring vocals of the talented and soulful Australian singer Conrad (who wrote the lyrics for “Fire Stone” and will be releasing his original material in 2015). Staying true to KYGO’s ever-popular signature sound, the track features his unmistakably catchy melodies, accompanied with a bouncy chord progression and syncopated drum patterns.
Currently in the midst of his biggest European tour to date, KYGO’s unprecedented rise from bedroom producer to headliner at major festivals such as Tomorrow World and Findings is testament to how far he has come in such a short timeframe. His remix of ‘I See Fire’ by Ed Sheeran has now been played over 18 million times on Soundcloud, making it one of the most streamed songs in Soundcloud’s history, and on October 1, 2014 he crossed the colossal landmark of 100 million streams on the platform.
Coined by Billboard Magazine as “electronic music’s next superstar” and now with an original track scheduled for release on Sony Music at the beginning of next month, the sky really is the limit for this flourishing Scandinavian artist.
