It’s Been 84 Years, But Robyn’s New Album ‘Honey’ Is Officially Coming Out This October
Robyn shouldn’t have kept you waiting, but…she’s here now.
Eight years after her last full-length studio album, 2010’s immaculate Body Talk – and a bunch of EPs, remixes and one-off singles sprinkled in between – the Swedish Queen of Pop returns this October the 26th with her eighth studio album Honey, named after the song you heard during the Girls final season in 2016 that you’ve been wondering about ever since. (#ReleaseHoneyDamnit, indeed.)
Two years later, Honey isn’t just ready: it’s a whole album. Aside from the title track and the recently released “Missing U,” Robyn’s crafted a series of songs in studios all across the world alongside her longtime collaborator Klas Åhlund, as well as Kindness, Mr. Tophat, Zhala and Metronomy‘s Joseph Mount.
The album is “this sweet place, like a very soft ecstasy. Something that’s so sensual, and so good. I danced a lot when I was making it. I found a sensuality and a softness that I don’t think I was able to use in the same way before. Everything just became softer,” according to Robyn. Sweetener is shaking, basically.
