Those who pre-order ‘Cloud Nine’ from today will also receive ‘Fragile’ as an instant free download. Unmistakably his most ambitious effort to date, ‘Fragile’ has Kygo leaving the house scene entirely as he pushes his musical boundaries further than ever before, stripping back things to 75 bpm and crafting a rousing ballad around Labrinth’s stunning vocals. ‘Fragile’ was first performed live last week on Norwegian TV show, ‘Senkfeld’, to a stunning reaction online.
