The track is taken from new tribute compilation 'Master Mix: Red Hot + Arthur Russell'
Robyn has covered Arthur Russell’s ‘Tell You (Today)’ as part of a new tribute compilation.
‘Master Mix: Red Hot + Arthur Russell’ was compiled by the Red Hot Organization, which raises awareness of AIDS through popular culture. Russell died of the disease in 1992. You can listen to the Swedish singer’s contribution – a take on Russell’s disco band Loose Joints – at the bottom of the page, via Pitchfork.
The album also features the likes of Hot Chip, Blood Orange, Devendra Banhart, Scissor Sisters and Arcade Fire’s Richard Reed Parry covering Russell’s songs. It will be released on Yep Roc Records on October 20.
Meanwhile, Robyn revealed earlier this year that her recently released ‘Do It Again’ mini-album, which was a collaboration with Röyksopp, came about after a bout of depression.
“I was super-tired and kind of depressed and had started therary,” the Swedish singer told NME. “I really wanted to make music, and I had lots of ideas, but I didn’t want to force anything, or create a concept of what the next album was going to be; I just wanted to collaborate with people.”
