It was so long ago now that I had forgotten the news but back in 2014, James Vincent McMorrow revealed he had collaborated with Duke Dumont, Tourist and Kygo.
Kygo is perhaps the most prominent exponent of tropical house / EDM. Some of the music that made him famous is absolutely offensive in its clap-happy simplicity. Lately, the Norwegian producer has been moving away from that style, which many started to copy, and has been developing a more palatable sound.
At the end of March, Kygo debuted a collaboration with Irish pop band Kodaline and now, he’s at it again, this time with James Vincent McMorrow.
McMorrow brings some falsetto soul to Kygo’s Enya string-esqued stadium-sized restraint on ‘I’m In Love’.
Great The New Yorker’s great piece on Kygo.
His album Cloud Nine is out on May 13.
