Kygo previews Charlie Puth collaboration
While Kygo‘s music is anything but polarizing, opinions on the Norwegian pan flute wunderkind differ quite vastly. However, no matter what side of the fence a given listener stands on regarding the advent of tropical house catalyzed by Kygo, all can agree that the producer has experienced a remarkable rise to ubiquity. Kygo has reached many uniquely impressive milestones since earning his fame by churning out timpani-laden remixes in 2013. In 2015, the artist surpassed a billion Spotify streams and performed at the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony. This year, EDM’s Jimmy Buffett released his debut LP and provided a closing performance at the Rio Olympics.
Kygo’s next high profile performance will take the form of a two day show at California’s famed Hollywood Bowl, where “Fragile” collaborator Labrinth will join him as a supporting act. To announce the event, which is to take place October 14-15, Kygo uploaded a video to his Facebook, showing the pianist in concert, overlaid with animation reminiscent of Jack Ü’s “Where Are Ü Now” music video. The advertisement serves the dual purpose of announcing Kygo’s Hollywood Bowl concert and previewing his forthcoming Charlie Puth collaboration, “Carry On For You,” which plays underneath the edited concert footage.
