Anyone who knows me knows that I have a serious infatuation with Robyn, Sweden’s pop princess export. She’s versatile, super-talented, and collabs on some of the hottest tracks to come out of Scandinavia. Just last year Robyn had fellow Swedish beatmaster Andreas Kleerup craft a song for the US release of her much-anticipated album. It was, for me, one of the best songs of the year and really became a dance club hit around the world. So, Robyn is great, that’s for sure. Now, Norwegian duo Royksopp are hitting the North American shores with soon-to-be-released Junior. If the first single, “Happy Up Here”, was any indication of just how spectacular the new effort was going to be, then the unexpected will be blown away with Royksopp’s invitation for Robyn to tell the story about “The Girl And The Robot”. Ha, like a storyteller. The track is sure to be another club banger, framed with a really dark, gothic intro and a beautiful strings-led ending. She loves a robot, which of course, breaks my heart, but it doesn’t keep me from dancing, and neither will it you. I should be getting paid for my Robyn obsession. Enjoy!
