Robyn Drops New Song, ‘Honey’ (Listen)

The tune is the title track from her first album in eight years, due Oct. 26.

Months after she played a snippet of the song at her Red Bull Music Academy talk — and eight years since the release of her last studio album — pop savant Robyn has finally dropped “Honey,” the title track of her forthcoming album, due Oct. 26 on Konichiwa, her own label, via Interscope. She released the first song from it, “Missing U,” last month.

The new album features contributions from longtime collaborator Klas Alund, Metronomy’s Joseph Mount, Kindess’ Adam Bainbridge, Mr. Tophat, and Zhala. In a statement, Robyn described “Honey” as “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.”

Since the release of “Body Talk,” Robyn has released a remix album (and toured behind it), mini-albums with  Röyksopp (2014’s “Do It Again”) La Bagatelle Magique (2015’s “Love Is Free”) and Mr. Tophat called (2017’s “Trust Me”); songs with the Lonely Island, Metronomy and Todd Rundgren; and gave a talk at the Red Bull Music Academy where she played some of “Honey.”

She announced the tracklist via Twitter a few days ago — it appears in print below for those with short attention spans.

  1. Missing U
  2. Human Being
  3. Because It’s In The Music
  4. Baby Forgive Me
  5. Send To Robin Immediately
  6. Honey
  7. Between The Lines
  8. Beach 2K20
  9. Ever Again
