Swedish indie-pop songstress Robyn has finally announced her first album in eight years, Honey. The record will drop Oct. 26 on Interscope and follows 2010’s Body Talk. The record’s been teased ever since an early version of the title track appeared last year on HBO’s Girls, made especially for the show after Lena Dunham reached out to Robyn. Dunham’s HBO show gave her song “Dancing on My Own” a second life by featuring it prominently in an early episode, two years after the song was released.
The new album features contributions from longtime collaborator Klas Alund, Metronomy’s Joseph Mount, Kindess’ Adam Bainbridge, Mr. Tophat, and Zhala. In a statement, Robyn described “Honey” as “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.” Recently, she shared the single “Missing U.”
