Swedish dance queen Robyn has today finally announced details about her upcoming album- her first project in over eight years. The album will be titled Honey, and is currently slated for release on October 26.
Honey will feature collaborations with Metronomy’s Joseph Mount, longtime collaborator Klas Ålund, Kindess’ Adam Bainbridge, Mr. Tophat, and Zhala. The first single from Honey was the recently dropped ‘Missing U’ which made it’s debut on HBO’s Girls.
Robyn has described the album’s mood as “this sweet place, like a very soft ecstasy”, elaborating: “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.”
The album’s announcement came through a message on Robyn’s official Twitter, where she explained “really can’t wait for you to hear it. It’s a personal album, and there are so many things that happened throughout making it that it’s really hard for me to explain in one go. I think the best way is for you to listen to it.”

Earlier this year, Robyn admitted that the new record started out with her working alone, rather than in tandem with collaborators as she has in the past. She said that gave her space to “get in touch with a sensuality and a softness” that she’s wanted to explore in her music.
