Kings of Convenience Return with Their First New Album in over a Decade
Hear "Rocky Trail" from the duo's upcoming 'Peace or Love'
Published Apr 29, 2021After an incredibly hard year, we're more than a little excited that the soothing folk harmonies of Kings of Convenience are coming back into our lives. Out of nowhere, the long-gone Norwegian duo have announced a new album and given us their first new song in more than a decade.
The album is called Peace or Love, and it will arrive on June 18 via EMI Records. Right now, though, we have the song "Rocky Trail."
The song picks up exactly where the band left off all those years back, with Erlend Øye and Eirik Glambek Bøe weaving effortless harmonies, plucking acoustic strings and just the right amount of orchestral colour.
It's pleasant — very pleasant. And you can hear "Rocky Trail" for yourself down below, where you can also see the tracklist for Peace or Love.
Kings of Convenience last released an album way back in 2009 with Declaration of Dependence. Last year, Øye also returned to his Whitest Boy Alive project for their album Quarantine at El Ganzo.

3. Comb My Hair
