Nico & Vinz Announce ‘Cornerstone’ EP, Release ‘That’s How You Know’ Video
After gaining success from their breakout hit "Am I Wrong," Nico & Vinz are back with Cornerstone, a new five-track EP. The forthcoming effort is set to be released on Nov. 6.
The Norwegian duo are focusing on their growth and progress since 2014, with Cornerstone serving as an "appetizer" for their full-length project due in 2016.
The Kid Ink and Bebe Rexha-featured song, "That's How You Know," is the first single for the project. Nico and Vinz will perform the song and make their TV debut on TODAY on Nov. 27.
"That's How You Know, a "cautionary tale of doing too much," takes on an eclectic feel -- something the 24-year-olds were going for. It's also the only song on the new EP with featured artists.
"The sounds out there right now show us that there's no real formula anymore, that it's ok to play around with sounds and moods. So we wrote a lot of songs based on things we enjoy listening and performing to and put that on the project," said Nico in a press release. "We represent this new generation that is genre-blind but connects with songs they feel, like love and struggle. The moment captured in this EP is a reflection on those feelings and experiences."
The track actually began as a joke. "That song was a fun one to record that kinda started off a joke of what would happen if we took advantage of the opportunity we have been afforded," explains Nico. "It's us trying new stuff, and was actually one of the first songs we recorded with this new mentality in different approaches to making music."
