Robyn, Smile join forces on ‘Call My Name’
Famed pop star Robyn is back with a new single “Call My Name,” set to be released on Swedish duo Smile’s upcoming album Phantom Island. Smile, made up of Joakim Åhlund and Peter Bjorn and John’s Björn Yttling, say “Call My Name” has been in the works for quite some time, but when Robyn came on board with her scintillating vocals, it really “lifted it to another level.” “
Her vocal is just packed with so much emotion” said Åhlund, who had previously collaborated with Robyn on her 2005 self-titled album, as well as 2010’s Body Talk. In a statement, Robyn added that she loved “singing ‘Call My Name’ and it was a true pleasure to record it and rave around in this beautiful song together with Joakim and Björn.”
In other Robyn-related news, this one quite a bit more surprising, her beloved 2010 hit “Dancing On My Own” was the soundtrack to the Boston Red Sox post-game locker room celebration after the team triumphed over the Tampa Bay Rays in the MLB Playoff’s American League Divisional Series. Simply put, Robyn said the viral moment was “Bonkers.” Listen to her new collaboration with Smile below.
