'Senior' is due out on September 13

Royksopp have announced the release date and tracklisting for their new album.

Entitled ‘Senior’ and released on September 13, the instrumental LP is the follow-up and counterpart to their 2009 studio effort, ‘Junior’.

“The two albums [‘Junior’ and ‘Senior’] have a kinship, in that they represent Royksopp‘s two very different artistic expressions,” the group said in a statement. “‘Junior’ – with emphasis on vocals, accessible melodies and harmonies, has the energy, the inquisitive temper and confident ‘hey-ho, let’s go!’ attitude of youth, whereas ‘Senior’ is the introverted, dwelling and sometimes graceful counterpart – brimful with dark secrets and distorted memories, insisting ‘I’m old, I’ve got experience…’.”

They added: “‘Senior’ is furthermore an album about age, horses and being subdued – with devils breathing down your neck.”

The tracklisting for ‘Senior’ is as follows:

‘…And The Forest Began To Sing’
‘Tricky Two’
‘The Alcoholic’
‘Senior Living’
‘The Drug’
‘Forsaken Cowboy’
‘The Fear’
‘Coming Home’
‘A Long, Long Way’
