Full tracklisting for joint 'Do It Again' mini-album is also unveiled
The snippet is the first to be lifted from joint mini-album ‘Do It Again’ which is due to be released on May 26. Both acts will also be embarking on a US tour and a series of European festival dates over the summer, including a slot at this year’s Latitude.
Of the new track, a statement on Robyn’s official website reads: “‘Monument’ is special to this album and to me. It’s about space in time and defining oneself. Svein and Torbjorn and I were in a zone when we made it, it was like a dream. Like a meditation.”
The singer continues: “I started going to Bergen to work with Svein (Berge) and Torbjørn (Brundtland) and after a while it just felt more natural to think of what we were making as a joint adventure more than music for our separate albums. I love them both as people and as musicians so its pure luxury to do this release together.”
The first official single from the mini-album will be the title track, which will premiere in the coming weeks. Both acts collaborated in 2009 on the song ‘The Girl And The Robot’, which featured on Royksopp’s third album, ‘Junior’.
The tracklisting for ‘Do It Again’ is as follows:
‘Do it Again’
‘Every Little Thing’
‘Inside The Idle Hour Club’
