- ARTIST: Robyn
- SONG: Honey
SO ALEX, WHY IS THIS YOUR SONG OF THE WEEK?
Sweden’s finest export after ABBA, Volvos and er…saunas, Robyn has now been in our lives for over two decades. It’s testament to the longevity of her career that she has now had hits in the 90s (‘Show Me Love’ – total bop), 00s (‘With Every Heartbeat’ – sadbanger bop) and now this decade, as she returns with her first new material in eight years since her 2010 release ‘Body Talk’.
‘Honey’, the title track of her sixth studio album – just released today – is everything you’d expect in a comeback single from her and more. Smooth and soulfully sweet, it’s sonically rich and a potent reminder of what makes her one of pop’s most exciting artists of the modern era.
‘Honey’ is available to stream and download now, as is Robyn’s new album of the same name, both via Konichiwa/Universal Island. Twitter: @RobynKonichiwa
