To coincide with their upcoming joint tour, Robyn and Röyksopp have announced the release of a mini collaborative album. Like the tour, the album is titled Do It Again, and it features five tracks. It will be released on May 26th through Dog Triumph/Wall of Sound/Cooking Vinyl. The first single/title track will be released on April 28th.
According to a press release, Do It Again serves as an introduction to Röyksopp’s new album, as it features two of the tracks from it.
Robyn said in an issued statement, “Svein and Torbjörn and I started working on new music in the beginning of 2013, I´ve been going back and forth to Bergen to record and write with the boys up until recently. Collaborating with S & T is something I enjoy very much. In the beginning we just knew we wanted to do something together and then 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.”
Röyksopp added, “… this doesn’t sound like Röyksopp featuring Robyn or Robyn produced by Röyksopp, it’s just something else entirely. The word ‘collaboration’ has never before been more justified in the world of music!”
