Global superstar, producer and DJ, Kyrre Gørvell-Dahll – a.k.a Kygo, releases new track and video “Freedom” ft. Zak Abel today.
The video features Kygo and Zak Abel in their respective homes on lockdown. They were originally meant to shoot a video in the Maldives with blue water and palm trees. That didn’t happen of course, as none of us can go anywhere now due to the global pandemic. So instead they stayed at home and made the best of it. The video chronicles Kygo’s and Zak’s trying to keep themselves occupied. Kygo is unsure when his next show will be, so he’s been spending time working on new music..and juggling ;) I guess the lesson for us all is to try and make the best of the situation.
“Freedom” follows the release of “I’ll Wait” with Sasha Sloan, “Like It Is” with Tyga and Zara Larsson and “Higher Love” with Whitney Houston, all of which will be featured on Kygo’s upcoming third album Golden Hour via Columbia/Sony Music International/Ultra Records/RCA Records.
Stay tuned for more news from Kygo very soon.
