“'Thrill Of The Chase' is a collection of songs I worked on over the last two years that started during Covid and ended with sessions in Los Angeles,” Kygo said of the album. “I've had the chance to play or tease the unreleased music throughout the year at shows and the feedback was unbelievable. A few of the songs on 'Thrill Of The Chase' are different from anything I've ever made in the past and I'm really excited for everyone to finally hear the album in its entirety.”
- Kygo explained of some tracks for the album.
“Love Me Now” featuring Zoe Wees
Kygo said, “I've been a fan of Zoe's music for quite some time, she's insanely talented. We've been working on this one for awhile and are really happy with how it turned out. I think our fans are going to love it!”
Says Zoe said, “It was really great working with Kygo! When we sent him our song idea he immediately came back to us with his first version that we all loved. His productions are so special – when you listen to his sound, you just know it's Kygo! I'm so happy to be able to work with him.”
“Undeniable” featuring X Ambassadors
Kygo said, “Sam and I had so much fun writing this one together in LA then performing it last month at Banc of California Stadium. It's a special song to us and I hope everyone likes “Undeniable” as much as we do.”
Sam Harris said, “I've always had an affinity for big-ass love songs but don't often end up writing them. This one came together so organically and quickly—it was such a treat to write it with Kash, Nick, Whethan and Kyrre. I honestly couldn't be more excited to sing it at all my friends weddings.”
“Dancing Feet” featuring DNCE
Kygo said, “Joe and I met years ago in Las Vegas and have wanted to find the right song to work on together for a while. When I started working on 'Dancing Feet' with David Stewart, it immediately felt like a special song. He had previously done a few records with Joe and both of us felt he could be the perfect fit for it. A few weeks later Joe and I were in the studio together in LA and finally had a song together that we both really loved! It was also great to have the chance to shoot a fun music video in Miami with DNCE and perform the song with them during Super Bowl weekend.”
DNCE said, “We first met Kygo when we did some shows together in 2016. We're excited to collab with him for the first time on 'Dancing Feet' and share this song with the world and lean into our funk & disco influences.”
“Never Really Loved Me” featuring Dean Lewis
Kygo said, “So happy to finally work with Dean Lewis. Been a big fan for some years now, and we had so fun making this one! 🎶 Dean and I listening to the final master of 'Never Really Loved Me' a couple weeks ago in LA! As you can probably can tell we're both pretty excited for this one!”
Dean Lewis said, “The first time I ever met Kygo in LA after working on the song together from across the world!! The next day we got into the studio and listened to the final mix together for the first time. ALSO it just got added to top 10 on Pop Rising 🤯🤯🤯 I'm the danish Adele but now I feel like I'm becoming the prince of Norway…. ”
“Lost Without You” featuring Dean Lewis
Kygo said, “Two weeks ago Dean Lewis and I met up in the studio in LA to listen to the final version of Never Really Loved Me. That night we ended up jamming and 'accidentally' wrote another song that we both love, called Lost Without You 🎶”
Dean Lewis said, “We accidentally wrote in an hour in a studio in Los angeles 2 weeks ago - it's called “lost without you”. It's one of my favourite songs I've ever been involved in writing and recording.”
“Freeze' is a really special record to me. I always try experimenting with new sounds and styles and feel that this song is different than anything I've ever released. I'm excited for my fans to hear this one and hope they like it as much as I do.”
