Robyn releases first song in 8 years, “Missing U” (listen)
Robyn said her in-the-works new album was “almost there” during a career-spanning Red Bull Music Festival talk in May, and she’s just shared the first single from it. “Missing U” is Robyn’s first solo release since Body Talk in 2010, and it immediately picks up where she left off with buoyant beats and crystallized, staccato synths. Robyn made “Missing U” with Metronomy’s Joseph Mount and longtime collaborator Klas Åhlund, and you can watch its lyric video below.
In the days before releasing “Missing U,” Robyn shared a short film created with director Danilo Parra, teasing the new song and showing her May appearance at Brooklyn Bowl’s monthly Robyn dance party, “This Party Is Killing You: A Night Of All Robyn Everything!” Watch that below as well.
