Robyn has released the title track from Honey, her first full-length album since 2010’s Body Talk. “Honey” was co-produced with collaborator Klas Åhlund and Joseph Mount of Metronomy.
The singer said the album comes from “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.” You can check out the first track from it here, which she previewed in a mini-documentary tribute to her fans. She also performed it live on Ibiza last month.
Said Robyn to the New York Times about the track “Honey”, above: “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.”
