“Shower Thoughts” – OUT NOW!

Today (on August 10th), Kris released his debut EP Shower Thoughts. The EP includes four songs and written by himself, his brother Daniel and his brother’s wife, Maria Erke. The EP feels so close to him and raw. You can notice how much work it’s behind it. His vocals are heaven, and he gets to show us his capability of singing technique, especially in the song called Rift, it’s our favorite song of all the songs.

Be sure to listen to the whole EP, not only one song and play them in the tracklist order because it has amazing transitions to the next song. Extremely noticeable in Get It (track one) to Shower Thoughts (track two). You’ll find most of the links to the EP below but also the official audios uploaded on Kris’ possibly new official VEVO YouTube channel!

We also translated a mini-interview from the Russian Muz1.tv, where Kris tell us about the EP (if you visit from the homepage, click on continue reading for the interview).

“Get It” out now!

Today (on July 27th), Kris released his single Get It from the upcoming EP Shower Thoughts. The song is written by Kris himself, his brother Daniel and his brother’s wife Maria Erke. It’s produced by himself, his brother Daniel and Sasha Xuman. This song is such an unique and well-produced song. We love how he opens up and finally let us see his vulnerable side both in writing and vocally. This makes us so excited for the rest of the songs from Shower Thoughts. He has told us before that this EP will be very personal and close to him. We’re more than proud to be here as a part of his journey, this is just the beginning of something big.

We also wanna promote the project that three girls (Darena, Helena and Vassiliki) have started on Instagram, contact them for more information than what you’ll get here. You will request Get It on local radio stations, but also request it outside your own country. We’ll put together a list of different European stations with links for requesting.

Eurovision Star sang a song in Kazakh [Article by SPUTNIK KAZAKHSTAN]

Kristian Kostov sang a duet with opera singer Maira Mukhamedkyzy at the memorial of Batyrkhan Shukenov (on Voice of Astana)


ASTANA, 16 Jun – Sputnik. Russian and Bulgarian singer Kristian Kostov performed the song in the Kazakh language and explained how he coped with this challenge.

Second place in the Eurovision Song Contest in 2017, Kristian Kostov sang the song “Otan Ana” by Batyrkhan Shukenov. The Kazakh language is familiar to the young performer because his mother is a Kazakh.

“I understand the Kazakh language, I’m in Astana for the fifth time, and every time I sing in Kazakh but it’s the same songs. “Otan Ana” is something new for me. I think that the Kazakh language incredibly musical. This is probably one of the few languages in which there is no fragmentation into words, but there is a fragmentation into syllables. That is, one word flows into another imperceptibly. This gives so many opportunities for writing songs. I’m a composer and I can say that it makes everything simpler. Perhaps that’s why the Kazakh songs are so beautiful,” Kostov said before entering the stage at Batyr’s memorial in Astana.

Kostov performed for the second time on the same stage together with Kazakh performers. In 2012, he was lucky to sing with Batyrkhan Shukenov, and six years later Kristian sang his song in Astana with opera singer Maira Mukhamedkyzy.

“I don’t know what to say, except that I feel lucky, because I had and I have the opportunity to sing with masters, the best of the best,” Kostov said.

During the performance, Kostov could not restrain emotions and interrupted the performance of the song, saying that it was very hard for him. Together with the hall he began to sing “Otan Ana” anew and ripped off applause.

On the question whether there will be repertoire of Kostov’s songs, the artist replied that the concert “doesn’t belong to himself.” However, exclude exclusion from the Kazakh list is not worth it, he added.

“I write more in English, because I have an international contract, so I can’t say anything definite, but I never say never,” Kostov replied with a smile.

Interview with ViewSofia (The most beautiful Bulgarian in 2017)

The Beauty Within …

Usually beautiful remains hidden for the eyes, because it is not only the vision, the intellect, or the way of dressing.

Beauty lies in the soul, in the sensation, in the emotions … and especially in the understanding of others and the sensitivity towards the world.

Today, with the most beautiful Bulgarian in 2017 , winning the next edition of our ranking – Kristan Kostov, we try to go beyond the usual beautiful, and “sing” things in a different way.

VS: Most beautiful in our Ranking is not tantamount to “Beauty is symmetry”.What is unsymmetrical for you to win our audience?
KK: Honestly, I do not think I won in your ranking because of my appearance. Winning is not mine as well as winning other competitions. The victory is #TeamKris, my fandom. They once again made me very proud and happy!

VS: How do you interpret the term “handsome”?
KK: I think every man is beautiful in one way or another. When honest, it can not be handsome. Beauty is a relative thing and you can not like it all, it’s a matter of taste.

VS: Appearance is very important, is it more important than the rest? 
KK: It is important, yes, but only for the first impression. At least you have to find your style and meet the standards of personal hygiene, that is. But, no matter how beautiful you are, you will not like it if there is nothing else under that beauty.

VS: What do you most often think you like most? 
KK: My eyes. I do not like the color of my eyes myself and I would change it.

VS: And what do you like about the others? 
KK: I can not say exactly, a question of feeling.

VS: The most beautiful refrain? 
KK: The one who is remembered for a long time.

VS: The most beautiful word for love? 
KK: Acceptance.

Burning Bridges by JOWST ft. Kristian Kostov is out!

Kris released his new single yesterday (on March 9). Burning Bridges is produced and written by Joakim With Steen (JOWST). Kris got the honor to be the vocalist on his song. JOWST represented Norway in Eurovision 2017 together with Aleksander Walmann while Kris represented Bulgaria. Burning Bridges is a song that was an instrumental in different versions when Kris got the question to join. I think his vocals fits so well to the song, I hope they will do another song together soon again. You can find the links to the song below and an interview from Eurovision.tv (that you can find by clicking on Continue reading if you’re on the frontpage)

Interview with SirK Magazine

Hello Kristian and welcome to our Sir K interview. You are about to turn 18 and your music career is already something many people would dream to have. How does it make you feel?

K: I just don’t feel that way. I think I’m just getting started and there is a lot to come!

Although Europe got to know you better thanks to the last Eurovision Song Contest, you started your career way before, in Russia. When you were only 6 years old, you entered the creative children studio Neposedy, which previously hosted also the future t.A.T.u. members Julia Volkova and Lena Katina. How was that experience and what was the group about?

K: The experience was priceless. The discipline, the basics of music theory, vocal and dance lessons, acting classes etc. This is where I learned the ropes.

Being so young, what was the role of your family in your career at the time?

K: Well, first of all, my family and I work together at the moment. My brother is my manager/music producer. We write music together, tour together and so on. My mum, dad and aunt are helping us a lot too, so it’s like a family thing. And, of course, they are just being the best family ever, so I’m a lucky guy!

In 2011 you started to pursue your solo career and in 2014 you starred in the first season of the talent show The Voice Kids, Russia. What can you tell us about that experience?

K: Back then I was really different from who I am today. And “The Voice” changed my life completely! I started to get my first paid gigs, and it was so strange to me. I was given so many new opportunities because of the show.

How was it to be on a massive TV production at the age of 14?

K: So, as you might know, Channel 1 is the biggest TV-channel in Russia, and I knew that, but I wasn’t scared or anything, maybe because of my young age. I think I didn’t even care about anything, I was just having fun. BUT, the thing that I’ve learned from the show is that, even on TV, you don’t get second chances, and also, not everything is fake, I mean planned and staged beforehand, like most people think.

Your coach on The Voice was Dima Bilan. How was it to work along with such a relevant star?

K: I think that he is the best artist in Russia. He’s been through a lot of good and bad things and that’s why he is who he is. Talented, intelligent, an incredible singer and performer, and also a great actor. It was my honour to work with him.

Are you still in touch with Dima?

K: Yeah, in a way. We are not chatting or talking a lot, but whenever I achieve something, I let him know. If he is free, he will always tell me what he thinks about this and that. The thing that I like the most about him is that he is always honest and approachable.

How did you feel after being eliminated from The Voice?

K: I won’t lie, failing after trying your best hurts: it is frustrating and gut- wrenching… But everything has worked out pretty well for me in the end. After the show, I dedicated myself to hard work, and hard work always pays off, no matter what.
