Kygo reveals new collaboration with Ellie Goulding

On Tuesday, April 25, Norwegian artist Kygo announced his upcoming new single alongside English singer and songwriter Ellie Goulding. Titled “First Time“, the track is set to be released on Friday, April 28.

Kygo is coming off the success of his massive collaboration with pop star Selena Gomez for the major hit “It Ain’t Me”. The track not only reached the radio airwaves all across the globe, but it also ranked high in numerous music charts.

Since the release of this single, it has been rumored that Kygo is currently in the process of working on his second studio album, following the release of his debut album called ‘Cloud Nine’ in 2016. The tropical house producer has proven his level of stardom, having teamed up with some of the industry’s biggest names.

Kygo is one of the few electronic music artists who Ellie Goulding has joined forces with. Goulding has also collaborated with Calvin Harris for “I Need Your Love”, DJ Fresh for “Flashlight”, and Major Lazer “Powerful” in the past.

From the teaser below, “First Time” perfectly mixes Goulding’s vocals with Kygo’s uplifting chords and melodies. Similar to many of his past records, the track consists of the euphoric vibes Kygo has become renowned for.
