Royksopp and Robyn are set to team up for a joint European tour in 2014, called the Do It Again tour.

The Scandinavian artists will also tour Northern America together, with full details to be released later this week. The acts collaborated in 2009 on the song 'The Girl and the Robot', which featured on Royksopp's third album, 'Junior'.

Royksopp have spoken out about the tour, saying: "We look forward to basking in the warm glow that is Robyn's presence. We predict one helluva ride." Robyn added: "Playing this music live with Svein and Torbjørn is going to be wildly fun!" Robyn released her seventh studio album, 'Body Talk', in 2010.

Benedict Cumberbatch recently made a somewhat unlikely appearance on Royksopp's 'Late Night Tales' mix album. Released earlier this year, the record included tracks by artists as varied as XTC, Vangelis and John Martyn, but ended with a spoken word track, with Sherlock star Cumberbatch reading the second half of a short story called 'Flat Of Angles' by Australian author Simon Cleary. The actor read the story's first half on a 'Late Night Tales' compilation by Friendly Fires that came out in November 2012.
