Röyksopp announce new album release date and tracklisting

'Senior' is due out on September 13

Royksopp have announced the release date and tracklisting for their new album.

Entitled ‘Senior’ and released on September 13, the instrumental LP is the follow-up and counterpart to their 2009 studio effort, ‘Junior’.

“The two albums [‘Junior’ and ‘Senior’] have a kinship, in that they represent Royksopp‘s two very different artistic expressions,” the group said in a statement. “‘Junior’ – with emphasis on vocals, accessible melodies and harmonies, has the energy, the inquisitive temper and confident ‘hey-ho, let’s go!’ attitude of youth, whereas ‘Senior’ is the introverted, dwelling and sometimes graceful counterpart – brimful with dark secrets and distorted memories, insisting ‘I’m old, I’ve got experience…’.”

They added: “‘Senior’ is furthermore an album about age, horses and being subdued – with devils breathing down your neck.”

The tracklisting for ‘Senior’ is as follows:

‘…And The Forest Began To Sing’
‘Tricky Two’
‘The Alcoholic’
‘Senior Living’
‘The Drug’
‘Forsaken Cowboy’
‘The Fear’
‘Coming Home’
‘A Long, Long Way’
