Does this collaboration sound familiar to you?
Well it should, because back in 2013, Kygo remixed Ellie Goulding’s “High For This.” The song was wildly successful and only four years later, the world’s top tropical house producer has decided to officially collaborate with the pop sensation Ellie Goulding for their new single, “First Time.”
The song is a heavily reminiscent slow jam recounting the memories of adolescent love. Goulding’s smoky voice rises and falls above a subtle, building beat. Kygo left the steel drums out of this one, though his trademark easy-going vibe stays present all the way through the track.
The combination of these two star artists hits a bit harder than some of Kygo’s other tracks, so just be ready for some feels.
