(Los Angeles, CA – March 31st, 2023) – Today, global superstar, producer, and DJ Kygo releases his official remake of Paul McCartney and Michael Jackson’s legendary #1 hit song “Say Say Say.” Out now via RCA Records, the remake adds a dance-driven twist to the 1983 classic from McCartney’s Pipes of Peace, infusing the song with house-influenced production that plays off McCartney and Jackson’s iconic vocals.
Speaking on the release, Kygo says, “I’m absolutely honored to work on a song that was made by two of the greatest musical legends of all time. Paul McCartney and Michael Jackson have meant so much to me as an artist and I’ve been listening to their music since I was a kid. It’s been a dream of mine to collaborate alongside these iconic artists and hope everyone enjoys the song as much as I do.”
This marks Kygo’s first taste of new music in 2023, and follows the release of his fourth studio album, Thrill Of The Chase, this past fall. Featuring collaborations with X Ambassadors, DNCE, Lukas Graham, Sam Feldt, Plested, Dean Lewis, and more, Thrill Of The Chase traced Kygo’s career over the past few years since the release of 2020’s Golden Hour, showcasing his signature lush, piano-driven production while highlighting his penchant for genre experimentation.
Kygo will play his biggest UK headline show to date on Saturday August 12th, 2023, at London Gunnersbury Park. To purchase tickets, visit HERE. Recently coming off headlining performances at Life Is Beautiful, Lollapalooza, BottleRock, and sold-out shows at Ullevaal Stadion in Oslo and New York City’s Madison Square Garden, most recently, Kygo brought his signature Palm Tree Music Festival to worldwide stops in Aspen, Indonesia, and Australia.
Whether behind the piano in his studio or headlining a sold-out festival, Kygo quietly reaffirms his status as a prodigious talent, forward-thinking producer, dynamic DJ, and influential global superstar. The Norwegian musician born Kyrre Gørvell-Dahll first introduced himself in 2013 and quietly became one of the most ubiquitous hitmakers in the world. Amassing 23 billion cumulative global audio and video streams by 2022, he has broken numerous streaming records. Kygo earned one of his biggest hits with the multiplatinum “It Ain’t Me” (feat. Selena Gomez), going Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 and clocking over 2.9 billion streams worldwide. In 2019, Kygo unleashed “Higher Love” with Whitney Houston and generated another 1.4 billion combined streams/views worldwide and peaked at #1 on Dance Radio, in addition to leaving his imprint on a classic.
He heralded his 2020 critically acclaimed third full-length album Golden Hour [Sony Music International/Ultra Records/RCA Records] with the anthems “Like It Is” (feat. Zara Larsson & Tyga), “Lose Somebody” (with OneRepublic), and “I’ll Wait” (feat. Sasha Alex Sloan). The album has garnered over 2.5 billion streams worldwide. Following Golden Hour, Kygo released his remix of Tina Turner’s “What’s Love Got To Do With It” and Donna Summer’s “Hot Stuff” to rave reviews. After headlining Lollapalooza and Life Is Beautiful this summer, along with sold-out headlining shows at Madison Square Garden and Oslo’s Ullevaal Stadion, this fall Kygo surprised fans with the release of his fourth album Thrill Of The Chase [RCA Records]. The album featured notable singles including “Dancing Feet” (feat. DNCE), “Woke Up In Love” (with Gryffin feat. Calum Scott), and “Never Really Loved Me” (feat. Dean Lewis), amassing over 700 million streams worldwide and debuting in the Top 5 on the Billboard Top Dance/Electronic Albums Chart.
