Watch This: Kygo premieres new track ‘Fragile’ on Norwegian TV
Kygo‘s brand of tropical house has propelled him to international stardom and helped usher the genre onto the worldwide stage. Now, however, the beloved producer seems to be pursuing a new direction — at least if his performance of his new track featuring Labrinth “Fragile” on the Norwegian television show Senkveld is any indication.
While fans won’t be unfamiliar with the sight of Kygo behind the keys of a piano, to see him accompanied by a live band — drums, guitar, bass, keyboards — may come as a surprise. Similarly, rather than the breezy summer plucks that form the melodies of many of his previous tracks, here Labrinth’s vocals and the guitar do most of the melodic heavy-lifting. The track is firmly an anthem, going so far as to feature an acapella, singalong section. While it remains to be seen whether the studio version, which Kygo confirms will be coming out soon, will be an exact reproduction of this performance or more in line with his previous offerings, it is certain to make waves.
