Olly Alexander and Benjamin Ingrosso release new version of “Kite”

Following hints on social media, Benjamin Ingrosso has released a new version of his latest single “Kite” – it’s a duet version with UK’s Eurovision representative Olly Alexander!

Listen to the song here:

“Kite” was written by Benjamin himself, along with well-known songwriters Anya, Jon Shave, Salem Al-Fakir, and Vincent Pontare, and was produced by Jon Shave and Vargas & Lagola. Following the release of the solo version of “Kite” in late January, Benjamin has also released an acoustic version featuring Norwegian singer-songwriter Astrid S earlier this month.

Benjamin Ingrosso has this to say about the collaboration:

Can’t wait for people to hear this track. I’ve been a big fan of Olly’s music for many years and it feels very exciting to be releasing a song together with him now. Olly is an incredible person as well and extremely talented creative who I feel has added an amazing dimension to “Kite”.

And Olly Alexander comments:

When I first heard “Kite”, it made me feel sunny and happy, thank you Benjamin! It was a great experience working together, he’s a really sweet guy and I’m excited to be on this gem of a song.
