Added KYGO: "I’m incredibly excited for my own KYGO RADIO channel! SIRIUSXM has had my back ever since day one when I was making remixes in my dorm room at university, and it means a lot that they’re supporting my music as I prepare to release my debut album, 'Cloud Nine.' I’ll be playing some of my favorite tracks from both the past and present, and most of all, I’m looking forward to playing brand-new music from 'Cloud Nine'. I can also promise a few surprises thrown in along the way, so tune in!"
Commented SIRIUSXM Pres./Chief Content Officer SCOTT GREENSTEIN: “SIRIUSXM has supported KYGO from the beginning. We are proud to be a part of the journey -- from when he was making remixes in his bedroom to getting signed by a major label to selling out BARCLAYS CENTER. As KYGO becomes a global superstar, we’re excited to celebrate the release of his debut album by turning CHILL into KYGO RADIO.”
SIRIUSXM’s KYGO RADIO will launch MONDAY, MAY 9th and will air through FRIDAY, MAY 20th, via satellite on channel 53 and through the SIRIUSXM app on smartphones and other connected devices, as well as online at SiriusXM.
