Robyn has seemingly confirmed that her first studio album since 2010 will finally materialise this year.
The Swedish singer’s last record came in the form of Body Talk, although she’s made a series of guest appearances on tracks by the likes of Todd Rundgren, along with new music as part of her La Bagatelle Magique project.
However, it now seems that a new album isn’t too far away after one fan dared to pose the all important question.
I do. Some time this year honey
— Robyn (@robynkonichiwa) February 7, 2018
When asked who is responsible for determining the record’s release date, she replied on Twitter: “I do. Some time this year honey”.
Last year, Robyn also joined compatriots Tove Lo, Zara Larsson and First Aid Kit in signing a letter that decried sexual abuse in the Swedish music industry.
Published in Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter last week, the letter reads: “We demand zero tolerance for sexual exploitation or violence. Sexual assault or violence will have consequences in terms of terminations of contracts. We will put shame back where it belongs—with the perpetrators and the people protecting them.”
In 2017, Metronomy frontman Joe Mount also said he was hoping to work with Robyn on her upcoming album.
“I’ve been working with people on my own stuff, some new stuff, and I’m off to see Robyn in March to try and do some stuff with her,” he told NME.
“I’ve just been a bit of family man recently…but everytime I do something with Robyn I get very excited, so hopefully I’ll be heavily involved in her next record but we’ll see.”
