Kygo meets with his royal fans, the Prince and Princess of Norway
After diversifying his public presence with a recent cover of Taylor Swift’s “Wildest Dreams,” Kygo is now rubbing shoulders with his own home country’s high royalty. The 24-year old producer began in his bedroom but since has become Norway’s largest output. Recently in New York, Kygo met with Prince Haakon and Princess Mette-Marit of his homeland for a happy moment of shared country pride.
“It’s been very fast, it’s hard to describe,” Kygo began, in Norwegian. The interview has been transcribed through a translator. “All the attention is part of the package, but I never had the goal of becoming particularly famous.” Born Kyrre Gørvell-Dahll, it seems obvious that the young talent is vocally reserved both online and in media, unlike many other fellow DJs and producers in the electronic sphere. He went on to explain that he was overwhelmed by the prying and media requests, and has since decided to take a break from press in order to refocus on music.
“It is strange to see that many of these dreams have come true. Now, I don’t quite know what new dreams I have. But I’m working on an album and can not wait to get it done. I don’t know when it will come, but it’s coming.”
Cheerfully, Kygo posed with his country’s royalty, who also expressed their love of his music. The Prince and Princess explained that both they and their children are fans, especially since his songs cover a broad spectrum of genres.
