Today Scandanavian Pop stars Robyn and Röyksopp debut their collaborative 5 Song EP Do It Again to the online world. The two artists had collaborated for a song on each of their previous two albums but this EP is being hailed as a legitimate creation from a “Pop Dream Team”. The duo has made all five songs available for listening on many different sites across the internet.
Robyn & Röyksopp recently released the steady and penetrating “Sayit” which is loaded with characteristic thumping and heavy bass. The song has already become popular in dance clubs. The titular single “Do It Again” has been released for over a month now, which generated the initial buzz for the exciting collaboration.
“In the beginning we just knew we wanted to do something together,” Robyn stated in the album’s release. “It started to feel more like a band thing than songs for a Röyksopp or Robyn album so we’re releasing this music together as a band you could say.”
The collaboration, while significant, has not deterred wither artist from their respective next albums, of which Röyksopp’s will be out later this year. “We’ve intended this to be a diverse,” Röyksopp claimed. “it’s meant to be an expression where pop & art reign side by side.
The collaboration coincides with an international tour as well. The tour begins on June 13th in Barcelona, Spain continuing throughout Europe and the United Stated before concluding August 25th in Toronto. Each act is designed to have its own set with a team up to conclude each concert. Tickets are on sale now at the band’s website.
