Robyn announces release date for forthcoming album, ‘Honey’
A production that will indubitably be as sweet as the stuff of its title, Robyn‘s second LP, Honey, at last has a formal release date. The follow-up to Robyn’s 2010 album, Body Talk, Honey will arrive on Konichiwa/Interscope Records on October 26. The eight-year cleft between Body Talk and Honey bespeaks a period of productive reflection for the “MISSING U” artist.
“With this album I’ve gone more back into the softer I get, the more it happens, and the more colors and dynamic a song gets. And for me, that meant shutting down for awhile and being sparse with my impressions and sensitive to what I needed,” Robyn said of the project during an interview at New York’s Red Bull Music Festival in May.
Robyn added that the album includes “much more production work on [her] end,” toil of a collaborative kind, given contributions from Adam Bainbridge — also known as Kindness — Mr Tophat and Zhala, Joseph Mount of Metronomy, and Klas Åhlund, all of whom assisted Robyn in the development of Honey as she crafted the LP from studios around the world, ranging from Stockholm to Ibiza to London. An offering that will embody Robyn’s growth across all sonic spectrums, from production approach to vocal styling, Honey will undoubtedly be worth the wait.
