The singer teams up with keyboardist Markus Jägerstedt for the project
Robyn has announced details of a new project.
The Swedish singer last released a solo album in 2010 with ‘Body Talk’, more recently teaming up with Röyksopp for last year’s ‘Do It Again’. Ahead of the 20th anniversary of debut album ‘Robyn Is Here’, the Stockholm native has now teamed up with keyboardist Markus Jägerstedt and producer Christian Falk as La Bagatelle Magique.

A press release states that the outfit will perform at Stockholm’s Dans Dakar festival August 21-22, playing new music.
Christian Falk’s contributions will be posthumous. The musician passed away in July 2014 from pancreatic cancer.
Robyn spoke last year about a release potentially coming from La Bagatelle Magique, stating that she was working on a new album and EP with Jagerstedt. Speaking at the time, Robyn said that “the new material I played on tour this summer is from that record”. She has also hinted that her sixth solo album is coming soon, confirming that she’s “working on it”.
The musician also set up the Tekla festival, aimed at young women interested in technology, which opened this April in Stockholm. A press release described the event as: “a festival for girls, in which they get to sample different areas of future technology in what I believe will be a fun and imaginative environment.”
