Kygo Unveils Massive New Collab with Imagine Dragons
After teasing something with Imagine Dragons two days ago, Kygo has revealed that he has a collaboration with the American rock group called “Born To Be Yours.”
Information about the track seems to be slowly trickling out, first with the reveal that there was something happening, now Kygo with the track’s title. Imagine Dragons finishes it up with a blissful audio preview and a release date: this Friday.
With Imagine Dragons now locked in, Kygo has a formidable start to a new album, after releasing his Stargazing EP last year. That included “It Ain’t Me” with Selena Gomez and “First Time” with Ellie Goulding.
We’ll have to wait and see when “Born To Be Yours” drops, but experience tells that it will be worth it.

BREAKING: Kygo x Imagine Dragons Is A Thing
Kygo has something big on the horizon…
On Facebook and Instagram, the Norwegian DJ and producer has shared a simple image of himself posing with American rockers Imagine Dragons; the caption is just the musical notes emoji.
The teaser could mean either a collaboration or a remix, but Billboard seems to believe it’s a fully-fledged collab. The reality won’t be known until more information is revealed, since we haven’t heard anything about him working with Imagine Dragons in the past.
Regardless, Kygo has worked with some other high-profile rockers in the past including U2 and OneRepublic, so we don’t see any of this being an issue, no matter how it goes down.
