The Night Game Releases Re-imagination of “Kids In Love.” North American Tour Starts Next Month

Following a North American headlining tour announcement last week, Interscope/Vertigo Records’ The Night Game has released a stunning new stripped down rendition of the worldwide hit single “Kids In Love.” Fans might be more familiar with Norwegian DJ/producer Kygo’s version of the track, which also features The Night Game’s Martin Johnson (who wrote on the track) but they are certain to fall for this nostalgia-inducing ballad-esque version which premiered via PAPER — who spoke to Martin about the new music and upcoming tour — and was released worldwide today.

Listen to the new version of “Kids In Love” HERE.

“I used to come home for the holidays or long weekends to the suburbs of Massachusetts and want it to be exactly the way I left it. To drive into the high school and slip right into the secret spot in the faculty lot where you could park and not get towed. To meet up with old friends on the main drag and pile into my old jeep to run over trash cans and four-wheel down power line roads. To pull down my high school sweet-hearts driveway and have her look at me the same way she did when she was 17. After a while that fantasy faded. Everything started to look small and no longer mine. The guy behind the bar at the local coffee shop forgot my order. They bulldozed over the old diner and put in a CVS, paired with a freshly painted parking lot. Old lovers and friends got new lives with new people in them. The nostalgic kiss had soured. It no longer felt good to bathe in the youthful memories of simpler times. It was hard to let her go because it wasn’t just about her. It was about the town. It was about reckless abandon. It was about dumb lust and idol boredom. I was mourning the loss of youth but it was time to say goodbye.”
– Martin Johnson/The Night Game
