Who is the KUWTK theme song by?

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians season 17 theme song was created by American pop group, Francis and the Lights.

They originated in Oakland, Calfornia and self-released their first album ‘Striking’ in 2007.

The group have worked with Bon Iver, Chance the Rapper and Kanye West – which could be the very reason they’ve ended up on the KUWTK theme tune.

The catchy tune is called ‘Morning’ and you can listen to the full song via YouTube.

Is the season 17 theme song different from last year?

No, the theme tune for KUWTK is still the same as season 16.

However, for season 16 Kanye West’s song ‘Runaway’ (ft. Pusha T) was added.

‘Runaway’ is from Kanye’s 2010 album, ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’, which featured other hits such as ‘All Of The Lights’ and ‘POWER’.

As if True Thompson’s first birthday party wasn’t awkward enough already with both of her separated parents attending, Tristan decided to confront Kanye about the fact that ‘Runaway’ was added to the theme song.

Tristan apparently wasn’t keen on the addition of the song and insinuated that it referred to him.
