Kate Boy make a powerful return with the announcement of their new single ‘Midnight Sun’. ‘Midnight Sun’ follows on from recent releases, ‘Higher’ and ‘Self Control’ and will be featured on their debut album set for release this autumn.
‘Midnight Sun’ was written and recorded by Kate Boy in Stockholm last December and draws inspiration from the endless days of sunlight during Swedish summers, often described as a magical experience. Kate Boy enlisted esteemed Swedish producer Christoffer Berg (Depeche Mode, Fever Ray, I Break Horses) to assist on the production of the track, together the collaboration created brooding synth lead verses that erupt into an explosive, anthemic chorus.
