Norway’s own Kygo—real name Kyrre Gørvell-Dahll— just released “Kem Kan Eg Ringe,” his first single sung in his native language of Norwegian. The song features two fellow Norwegian rappers, Store P and Lars Vaular, to give the track even more authenticity.

“Kem Kan Eg Ringe” represents both new and familiar sonic territory for Gørvell-Dahll. His signature sound is built around slower tempos, and this track shares that quality, but it also departs from the tropical-house flavor that gave him his notoriety for a pure, piano-driven feel. This more raw approach is the ideal backdrop for the vocals of Store P and Lars Vaular, whose sound is heartfelt and honest.

The first half of 2019 has been rather solid for Gørvell-Dahll. In addition to this latest single, his previous track, “Carry On,” was featured on the original soundtrack for the major motion picture “Pokémon Detective Pikachu.” Prior to that release was his single “Think About You” with Valerie Broussard and an official remix of last year’s hit “Happy Now” from R3hab.

Kygo reinstates his tropical house prowess with the help of Chelsea Cutler on ‘Not Ok’

Kygo reinstates his tropical house prowess with the help of Chelsea Cutler on ‘Not Ok’Umfj17c 092

Making his the third consecutive appearance in the first five months of 2019, tropical house sentinel Kygo is retaking the reins at the forefront of the tropical house subgenre on his latest offering, “Not Ok” with singer-songwriter Chelsea Cutler.

Graceful guitar plucks held in the undertone of Cutler’s calming words set the pace for a shimmering summer production that unravels into the Norwegian producer’s banner tropical identity. Kygo brings forth elegant piano chords and another compelling melodic lead that is stylistically reminiscent of his earlier output from his debut album, Cloud Nine. The pairing provides an empathetic message about relationships, and ultimately, their demise, as Cutler concedes to a feeling of dejection across the lyrics in ‘Not Ok’.

The sultry creation follows Kygo’s addition to the upcoming soundtrack of the highly-anticipated Pokémon: Detective Pikachu movie as he joined Rita Ora for, “Carry On.” As Kygo continues to blur dance-pop boundaries, fans can only fantasize of an upcoming LP that could hopefully be on the horizon.

Kygo and Rita Ora rendezvous for ‘Carry On’Kygo Rita Ora

Tropical house tycoon, Kygo, and Rita Ora have teamed up for a new track, “Carry On,” to be featured in the brand new Pokémon: Detective Pikachu movie.

The track arrives alongside an Ora-starring visual, in which the syrupy songstress sweeps across the screen in a Pikachu yellow trench coat. Shots of a dancing Ora flash between scenes from the actual feature film (out May 10), while Kygo’s redemptive piano melodies flutter about. Fittingly, Ora portrays the role of Dr. Ann Laurent in the movie itself.

The track is out now via Sony’s RCA Records, and will be featured in the movie’s official soundtrack, as well.
