Kygo Releases Debut Album ‘Cloud Nine’

KYGO RELEASES DEBUT ALBUM CLOUD NINE TODAY

SET TO PERFORM NEW SINGLE “STAY (FEAT. MATY NOYES)” ON GOOD MORNING AMERICA ON TUESDAY, MAY 17TH

Today, Norwegian superstar, Kyrre Gørvell-Dahll, a.k.a Kygo, releases his long awaited debut album entitled Cloud Nine via Ultra Records/RCA Records.  The album features mega hits such as “Stole The Show (feat. Parson James)”, “Firestone (feat. Conrad Sewell)”, and a number of highly anticipated unreleased tracks.

The Cloud Nine album artwork was designed by French-born, Los Angeles-based filmmaker and street artist, Mr. Brainwash, who also designed Kygo’s Barclays Center show poster.

“With slow-flow pulses and blears of reverb, Cloud Nine triangulates the downtempo of the Nineties, the chillwave of the Aughts and our current appetite for deep house – a sound at once modern and nostalgic.”

– Rolling Stone
