The New York City Subway received an spur-of-the-moment dance party after Robyn‘s headlining concert at Madison Square Garden.

The burst of public energy came shortly after Robyn’s Honey tour stop in NYC, with Twitter catching some special moments of concert-goers bouncing to “Dancing On My Own” and “Hang With Me” on the A train platform at 34th Street stop. These two hits off the Swedish pop star’s 2010 Body Talk album gave late-night commuters a glimpse of collaborative cheer that occasionally materializes in the metropolis’ murky subterranean holdings.

Robyn’s Honey tour celebrates her eighth studio album, released last year, and her first since Body Talk in 2010. She wraps up the North American portion of her tour on March 14 in Toronto before heading off to conquer the European leg.

Robyn continues her powerful return to the musical spotlight with the release of an official music video for “Honey.” The Swedish pop star dropped her 10th studio album in October, gaining a myriad of long-awaited positive traction before making several 2019 tour announcements — including highly anticipated performances at NYC’s Madison Square Garden and Denmark’s Roskilde Festival. The visual accompaniment for “Honey” only keeps this fervor alive.

From listening to the song, it’s clear that there’s only one way to visualize the track’s entrancing essence: get people to the dance floor. The Max Vitali-directed video does just that, creating a jubilant atmosphere in featuring a myriad of people dancing freely alongside Robyn in a smoky room.

Just a touch after the impactful release of Honey, her first studio album since 2010, Robyn has announced that she will begin another tour in 2019. The announcement came via Twitter, indicating that she’ll be making an auspicious stop at NYC’s Madison Square Garden. Shortly thereafter, she released a full list of 2019 tour dates.

However, with the announcement, the Swedish icon had yet to disclose that she’ll also be headlining Roskilde Festival Jul 5–that is, until now. A few days prior, the music festival announced the first phase of acts that will accompany her on its broadly satisfying lineup, which includes Travis Scott, Alma, Nicola Cruz, the UK’s Tirzah, and a great deal more. Hosted in Denmark by the Roskilde Festival Charity Society, the festival has been showcasing worldwide music and culture since its humble beginnings in 1971. Next year, the nonprofit will return for its 49th installment from Jun 29 to Jul 6, with over 150 acts across eight meticulously curated stages.

Robyn releases title track to forthcoming album, ‘Honey’

When the last episode of HBO’s Girls aired in April 2017, it marked the end of an era for television, but was the official start of a new journey for Robyn. The Swedish pop artist, who had not released new music since 2010 and had featured her seminal “Dancing On My Own” in an early episode, soundtracked the show’s closing credits with music that was unnamed, but recognizably hers. After confirming on social media the track’s name as “Honey,” fans patiently awaited more information on her long-awaited new music’s official release.

But the viral fervor died down as no more information on “Honey” surfaced. Nearly 18 months later, Robyn finally announced the imminent arrival of new music with the release of “MISSING U,” later revealing the album’s name will be for the song that started the new journey, Honey. After recently revealing the release’s full track list and album art, “Honey” has made its final debut. In speaking with The New York Times, she explained the reason for being for the final version of the track saying, “It’s not produced or written as a normal pop song. It is totally based on this idea of club music. When you’re listening to club music, there’s no reward. The reward isn’t, ‘Oh, here’s the chorus, here’s the lyric that makes sense.’ You have to enjoy what it is. You have to enjoy that there’s no conclusion.”

Today the track got an official first play from a seeming partner along the road to Honey, Annie Mac. As promised, it’s a dreamy, organically flowing piece of pop music that conveys an uneasy seductiveness that only Robyn can deliver.

Robyn‘s highly anticipated Honey is out in just one month.

Details surrounding the artist’s first new solo album since 2010’s Body Talk have been scarce up to this point, aside from the release date — October 26 via Konichiwa Records/Interscope — but now, the Swedish talent’s revealed the album’s full track list. The nine songs in total include contributions from Metronomy’s Joseph Mount, longtime collaborator Klas Ålund, Kindess’ Adam Bainbridge, Mr. Tophat, and Zhala, the first artist signed to Robyn’s Konichiwa Records.

After making her long-awaited return with “MISSING U” last week, Swedish pop artist Robyn continues on her comeback tour, taking her talents to performances at multiple venues on the island of Ibiza. With the “Dancing on My Own” artist’s close and common ties to dance music, she gave fans at Pikes Hotel and Café Mambo opportunities to witness her perform live.

After appearing at Pikes Hotel alongside friend and collaborator Mr. Tophat, Robyn hit the stage herself to perform some of her greatest hits, as well as her new single in front of fans, and as broadcasted by Radio 1. While she has confirmed an album to be released later this year, new Robyn tour dates have yet to be announced.

Robyn makes a triumphant return with ‘MISSING U’

Robyn fans have been enduring an eight-year-long drought. The Swedish pop star and dance icon hasn’t released an album since Body Talk was released in 2010. While she has released new music, it’s been more experimental, and she’s worked with contemporaries like Röyksopp and Mr. Tophat on new EPs. But while fans have remained waiting, it hasn’t been quietly — through theme parties, themed workout classes and any excuse to play her music in the public sphere, Robyn’s persona and special brand of emotional, isolated, danceable pop music have reigned as evergreen. Such is the subject of a new documentary put out by the “Hang With Me” singer, which follows her as she joins in on one of these parties in New York this past spring, ahead of her forthcoming album to end her silence.

After acknowledging to her fans that she is indeed in awe of what they’ve achieved for her legacy together, Robyn hit BBC Radio 1 — of course as Annie Mac’Hottest Record — to debut her first single from her album, “Missing U.” With this song, she has proved that her absence was worthy of note, as she reenters the music world proving that no one has been able to take her place. The single will remind many of her former music like “Call Your Girlfriend,” but its message still remains achingly relatable.

More details on Robyn’s further return are yet to be divulged, but if one thing’s for sure, fans will be patiently waiting for more.
