"Firestone" is a song by Norwegian DJ and record producer Kygo, featuring vocals from Australian singer Conrad Sewell. The lyrics and music were written by Dutch songwriter Martijn Konijnenburg, who was inspired by a Firestone billboard he saw in Venice, California.[8] It was released on 1 December 2014 and reached number one on the Norwegian Singles Chart and became a big international hit for Kygo on many other charts.[9] Birdy performed a cover of the song on BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge.[10]

Composition[edit]

The song is in the key of D major. The meter is common time and the tempo is 114 BPM. The chord progression is G – A – Bm – D.

Music video[edit]

The music video was released on Kygo's official Vevo channel on 9 March 2015, where it had gained over 610 million views as of February 2019. The video starts with a young woman (played by Rachel Echelberger, contestant of America's Next Top Model cycle 13) bumping into a young man, who pulls him in and seems about to kiss him before walking off with a suggestive display. He is entranced, and follows her through a series of doors that open up into different scenes, such as a forest, parties (where Kygo is seen playing music), a pool, and the dry riverbed in Los Angeles. They briefly reconnect at one of the parties before she leaves again. As he steps up the chase, she continues running, and when he appears to have lost her for good, he loses his temper. However, after he sees her walking casually by in a rugged warehouse loft, the chase continues. At the end of the video, he ends up at the same location where they first met, but on exiting the next door, he finds her standing alone on a building rooftop in the city, where he meets her as the video fades.
