St. Lundi releases acoustic reworking of Kygo’s ‘To Die For’
Originally found on Kygo’s chart-topping ‘Golden Hour’ album, “To Die For” has lived multiple lives each more impressive than the last. What started as a defunct collaboration with Dermot Kennedy, resulted in Kygo reaching out to St. Lundi to finish the track at the 11th hour before Golden Hour was released.
The result was one of the most iconic tracks on the Norwegian star’s album – a stand out amongst a collective of certifiable hits. Now St. Lundi returns to the collaboration and re-imagines it as an acoustic version that just might be more enchanting than the original. Already at 1 million streams, the acoustic version of “To Die For” takes on a whole new soul with the electronic elements stripped bare and the vocals center stage. A little bit of Coldplay’s Chris Martin in his intonation, St. Lundi’s voice is the star here, striking chords with fans and those unfamiliar alike. Looking for more from St. Lundi? His second EP is slated for an early 2021 release date, produced by Edd Holloway and Nick Atkinson.
