Kings Of Convenience Share Song “Rocky Trail,” Announce New Album

Returning with their first new music in a decade, Kings of Convenience announce their forthcoming album, Peace or Love (EMI Records), out June 18. Today the band – Eirik Glambeck BoE and Erlend Oye – also reveal the first single from the album, “Rocky Trail.” The gentle power of the track makes it clear that the band has lost none of their skill or emotional eloquence since they last recorded together. Lilting acoustic melodies are accompanied by violin and the pair’s distinctive dual-vocal approach to creating something both subtle yet evocative. The contemplative lyrics deal with ideas of perception and regret.

“Another classic Eirik composition that skilfully ignores the verse-chorus-verse blueprint” explains Erlend on the origins of the song. “It’s pop music, but not as we know it.”

Kings of Convenience also announce their first dates in support of Peace or Love. The band will be playing two shows at the Royal Festival Hall on September 26, 2021 (afternoon matinee and an evening show.)
