Kygo throws curveball with surprise release of new ‘Stargazing’ EP
When tropical house pioneer Kygo took to Twitter to announce the release of “Stargazing” this Friday, the world thought it would be just another single. This turned out to be wholly inaccurate. Not only did Kygo release “Stargazing” a day early, but, as it turns out, Stargazing is a brand new EP pack.
Included in the exciting new project are high-profile Kygo releases with Selena Gomez, “This Ain’t Me,” the Ellie Goulding-assisted track, “First Time,” and the recent U2 collaboration, “You’re the Best Thing About Me.”
Luckily, the most provocative tracks on the Stargazing EP are the two newest additions. Vocalist Justin Jesso joins on the EP’s eponymous first track for an energetic production that builds beautifully with piano chords and chopped vocals. “This Town,” featuring the calming vocals of Sasha Sloan, is a more chilled out ballad with Kygo’s euphoric key-infused style and tiny hints of his sunset allure.
