Robyn announces spring tour in support of new album Honey

This post was originally published on this site

You know what? I don’t really *feel like* writing my own original news story today regarding Robyn’s just-announced 2019 tour dates in support of her long-anticipated new album Honey (I’m kinda in the middle of a goddamn CRUCIAL binge-watch of Mister Rogers Neighborhood, if you wanna know).

Why don’t you take this one, Robyn?

See, everyone? Isn’t that neat??? Robyn works for ME now.

Now, here’s a slightly more legible version of those tour dates again (typed-up by my OTHER intern, Bryce), preceded by what I’ve been assured (again by Bryce) is Robyn’s latest video for Honey’s title track.

So long, SUCKERS! Uh, I mean…enjoy:

Robyn – “Human Being” (Feat. Zhala)

This post was originally published on this site

Robyn - "Human Being" (Feat. Zhala)If you’ve read our Premature Evaluation of Robyn’s long-awaited album Honey — which is finally out tonight, eight years after her last LP, Body Talk — you know the premise of the album is that Robyn is not, in fact, an unflappable fembot. She’s a flesh-and-blood human being, capable of being wrecked by … More »

Premature Evaluation: Robyn Honey

This post was originally published on this site

Robyn - HoneyEight years ago, Robyn declared that she was a fembot. Yes, she had feelings, too, but she was indestructible, she would dance on her own. On Honey, she lets that guard down. She makes it obvious on one of its first tracks: “I’m a human being/ And so are you/ My heart can’t stop beating/ … More »

New Music Friday: Alan Walker & Sophia Somajo! Robyn!! Lady Gaga twice!!! Etc!!!!

This post was originally published on this site

Notes on this week’s new releases:

  • The shoddily Photoshopped image at the top of this page exists to commemorate the release of Alan Walker and Sophia Somajo‘s Diamond Heart. This is the big song she was talking about in our interview last week and it is, indeed, quite big. Alan Walker still sounds like an estate agent but this song is a belter.
  • Honey by Robyn is pretty good.
  • It’s quite funny listening through New Zealand band Openside‘s releases on Spotify — they started off in 2015 as a sort of Paramoreish rock band now three years later Character Flaws is a balls-out electropop beast. This definitely feels like they’re doing things the right way round — certainly a lot better than starting off doing electronic pop and ending up bogged down in outdated notions of authenticity.
  • Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper‘s Shallow is out now!!
  • Jaguar Dreams bill themselves as “a New York indie-rock band that you can dance to” but wait, come back — Behind Those Clothes is actually worth several listens.
  • One By One is Rationale’s best song yet. Well done Rationale!
  • St Vincent‘s Slow Disco got a Fast Slow Disco rework a few months ago; today we have Slow Slow Disco. Ordinarily there’s no space for Acoustic Versions on the Popjustice New Music Friday playlist but this sneaks in for reasons relating to the glory of the high concept single release. Perhaps this is what the ‘tringle’, a format attempted by JoJo a couple of years back, should have been?
  • The Nile Rodgers/Chic album could have been lots of things. Sadly it’s the thing that’s been released today, a messily A&Rd album that struggles to ten tracks, two of which are the same song. The whole project should probably have been shelved the moment LunchMoney Lewis delivered Do You Wanna Party, a song to which the only is response is, sadly, “not like this”.

Robyn releases title track to forthcoming album, ‘Honey’

Robyn releases title track to forthcoming album, ‘Honey’Robyn Honey 1537987932

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.
