Back in February, Robyn was honoured as the Songwriter Of The Decade at the NME Awards 2020 in London.

Charli XCX and Héloïse Letissier of Christine And The Queens presented the prestigious award to Robyn, before a montage of the pop icon’s work was projected on a giant TV screen.

During her post-award acceptance interview, she revealed that she’s hoping to get into the studio this summer to record new material.

Talking to NME in the winners’ room, she said that she was planning to work on new songs that didn’t make it onto her acclaimed 2018 album ‘Honey’.

“There are leftovers,” Robyn said. “Some of them I’m going to record this summer, I hope. Usually, I finish songs. If I start them, I finish them. The last album took eight years. I hope it won’t take that long next time.”
