After selling over 6 million singles in 2015 and gaining the crown of Spotify’s “Breakout Artist of 2015,” Kygo is on point for another incredible year. To keep it rolling, the Norwegian producer has just released “Stay,” his latest masterpiece of tropical joy. Rooted in hopeful melodies and ethereal processing all his own, “Stay” is another beautifully executed feel-good jam.
Beginning with an oceanside guitar, Maty Noyes immediately lays down a perfect vocal line, cueing the start of Kygo’s uplifting production. Implementing a driven house beat and percussive ornaments to shape the ambience just right, we’re quickly greeted with another soon-to-be classic. Shrouded in dreamy filters, “Stay’s” popping melodies dance through a sea of shimmering synths, dripping with emotion to give your ears a delightful embrace.
Out now, grab “Stay” for yourself via iTunes, and have a listen above. And if you can’t get enough of it, Kygo will be kicking off the new year at New York’s Barclays Center on January 21st, along with MØ as a special guest. Slated to be his biggest performance to date, be sure to grab tickets here.
