Kygo
Gone Are The Days (feat. James Gillespie)
April 16, 2021

Kygo goes into left field with the unexpected but wonderful new single “Gone Are The Days” with Scottish newcomer James Gillespie. Kygo hinted as much on social media promising “a new chapter of music” with this single a much more piano and vocal driven track (and lower tempo) than past Kygo singles.

2020 was a massive year for Kygo. He released a remix of Donna Summer’s Grammy Award winning, RIAA platinum, #1 song “Hot Stuff” as well as a remix of Tina Turner’s “What’s Love Got To Do With It” to rave reviews. He also released his critically acclaimed third full-length album Golden Hour which features his hit single “Lose Somebody” with OneRepublic as well as “Higher Love” with Whitney Houston, the latter of which has garnered over 1.1 billion streams worldwide and charted at Top 40 radio.

With over 100 MILLION streams worldwide, James Gillespie emerges as one of the most quietly explosive artists in the UK. After performing with P!NK he went on to sell out his European tour and is set to tour the U.S this fall.

Alongside the single Kygo also released a piano version further hinting at that acoustic album!
