The Queen of Swede Pop has finally returned! That’s right. Robyn is back!
Just a little over year after teaming up with Röyksopp on their fantastic Do It Again EP, the Body Talk songstress has announced a new project called Robyn & La Bagatelle Magique, a collaboration between herself, longtime keyboardist Markus Jägerstedt and producer Christian Falk, who unfortunately passed away last year due to pancreatic cancer. May he rest in peace.
Fear not my children, “Love Is Free,” the trio’s lead single from their upcoming mini-album (due out this summer), is nowhere close to being a somber affair. The summer-ready track is a wild array of heavy house basslines, spacey blips and bleeps, cowbells, and scattered “boom-chicka-boom”‘s that only continues to get better and better as the song grows. “I’mma give it to you baby / I’mma give it when I’m ready/ So smooth and heavy, so new so steady/ some light some heavy,” she declares on-top of the unforgivably bangin’ beat
“This isn’t his memorial record, it’s a record we had a lot of fun making. And he was very much alive, in love with his life, and he wanted to make more music,” Robyn told Annie Mac on BBC Radio. “He introduced me to so much different styles of music, I think one of the most important people in my life in that sense.”
“Love Is Free” is, unsurprisingly, another smash hit for the Swedish superstar. But since when has Robyn done anything wrong? Apréndelo, apréndelo, te lo digo right now so entiéndelo!
