Kygo has a history of reviving old songs. They’re not quite slap house, in terms of genre, but in soul, they share many similarities. He’s put out updated covers of songs from Donna Summer, Whitney Houston, and Tina Turner in the past. Today’s release revives “Say Say Say,” the 1983 collaboration between Paul McCartney and Michael Jackson.
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 Chasethis did not fall.
Kygo will play his biggest UK headline show to date on Saturday August 12th2023, at London Gunnersbury Park. To purchase tickets, visit HERE.
