Swedish singer/songwriter Benjamin Ingrosso makes a welcome return to music today (January 26th) with the release of his electrifying new single ‘Kite’ – a super catchy, upbeat pop bop that captures the “exhilarating feeling of a new encounter, and the endless possibilities it brings”.
Written by Benjamin himself, along with acclaimed songwriters Anya (Kylie Minogue), Jon Shave (Britney Spears, Zayn), Salem Al-Fakir, and Vincent Pontare, with production by Shave and Vargas & Lagola (Avicii, Madonna, Sia, A$AP Rocky, Lady Gaga), the majestic track serves as the lead single from Ingrosso’s highly anticipated new album, and draws inspiration from the enchanting melodies that filled the singers childhood home.
Infused with elements of 1970s soul, and classic Swedish pop, the anthemic song is brought to live via it’s playful music, which sees the ever charismatic Benjamin performing in a variety of different setups, further conveying the singles message about “embracing life as a thrilling journey, a vibrant party, and the pursuit of love”.

Deciphering the essence of his unique pop sound, which fans attending the tour will get to experience first hand, the ‘I Had It All And Let It Go’ singer says: “The rawness and grit of punk have been given more space, and I have consciously chosen not to have a more polished and ‘modern’ sound. ‘Timelessness’ is a key word for everything I’ve tried to create now. The lyrics are more straightforward, written from personal experiences but sometimes with a broader perspective. I don’t think I’ve ever been as excited about my music as I am with this song, and all the new music you’re going to get from me this year.”
