Following the recent release of his chart-topping debut album ‘Cloud Nine’, Norwegian icon Kygo now unveils TWO official music videos from the LP, ‘Raging’ and ‘I’m In Love’. The complementary pair of videos, released in tandem, are directed by Ariel Elia of Astre Pictures and display a unique and timeless two-part story of love and loss.
The first visual production, accompanying ‘Raging’, outlines the lives of a frustrated couple grappling with modern day struggles in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Riddled with violent scenes of striking and general unrest, the video displays the difficulties of maintaining personal relationships while navigating tumultuous political landscapes.
The second video of the two-part series places James McMorrow’s featured track ‘I’m In Love’ at center stage. Viewers are reintroduced to the Brazilian couple from ‘Raging’, now relocated to Paris. The two make their way through the city, stopping by various landmarks including the Pont des Arts, eventually landing at Kygo’s concert in the city. Closing at the sacred steps of Sacré-Cœur, the duo make their peace, realizing their feelings for each other vastly outweigh any immediate differences they may encounter.
Without doubt one of the most impressive performing electronic albums in recent memory, Kygo’s debut album ‘Cloud Nine’ has been a resounding success, having broken into the top 10 in over 25 countries worldwide, including #1 positions in Norway, Switzerland and the United States (Dance Chart). The album has also performed wonders in major markets reaching #3 in the UK, #4 in Holland and #6 in Germany. The album has also been one of the most streamed albums across both Apple Music & Spotify since its release on May 13 and it’s now available to buy and stream worldwide below.
Off the back off an absolutely stunning six months in which he’s adorned the front cover of Billboard, reached one billion streams on Spotify and sold out major venues like the Barclays Center in New York, The Greek Theater in Los Angeles and the 02 Academy in Birxton, Kygo is set to continue on his march this 2016.
