Robyn Releases Body Talk Album Art AND Track List

In: Music, Tyrell

YES YES YES! The anticipation for this album couldn’t be higher. After Pt. 1 and Pt. 2 did not disappoint, I am sure that Pt. 3 will be amaze balls. Today, Robyn released on her website an official release of the artwork for the album as well as the official track list. I wrote a post a bit ago with some details about the album saying that Pt. 3 would contain songs from both Pt. 1 and 2 as well as some new material.

This is all confirmed now!

We’ve been blessed with another amazing gift from Swedish pop goddess, Robyn. The singer just released the single edit of her new single “Indestructible” and it’s… FANTASTIC. If you loved the acoustic version found on “Body Talk, Pt. 2″, then you’re going to love the new treatment. The new version is the lead single from the third and final installment of her “Body Talk” album series.

Just like the makeover she did with “Hang With Me”, Robyn swapped the orchestral backing acoustics of “Indestructible”, with mid-tempo electro-pop beats. The result is another danceable, remix-ready track ready to invade the clubs. Even with the reworking, the song’s message about the downside of needing someone is still in tact. Check out the track below. Robyn also included a hot dance remix by The Krays on her Soundcloud account.

Robyn Brings Us Body Talk Pt. 3

In: Music, Tyrell

Robyn is set to release Pt. 3 of her Body Talk album series on November 29th and I couldn’t be more excited. This trilogy of albums have redefined Robyn and pop music as a whole. Digital Spy is reporting this morning that the lead single off Pt. 3 will be a “pulsating full-power version” of Pt. 2′s acoustic (and very beautiful) Indestructible. AMAZE BALLS!

If you remember, Pt. 1 gave us the acoustic version of Hang With Me and Pt. 2 brought us the up tempo version. This time around, Robyn is bringing us 5 songs from Pt. 1, 5 songs from Pt. 2 and 5 BRAND NEW TRACKS for Pt. 3. Wow. I cannot wait.

Gossip Girl: Robyn Heads To The Upper East Side

In: Donovan, Music

Last year Lady Gaga performed “Bad Romance” for the Upper East Siders of “Gossip Girl“, this year another hot solo singer is dropping by. Site favorite, Robyn, is making a surprise visit for Blair Waldorf’s upcoming birthday bash. Lucky girl. How do I get Robyn to show up at my next birthday celebration?

The Swedish superstar tweeted a photo from set yesterday. Hopefully her performance on the hit show will be what she needs to break into the US mainstream market. A huge favorite amongst the gays and hipsters, Robyn is nowhere near the sensation she is in her native Sweden. C’mon America, show her some love. At the very least, maybe this guest spot will promote her from commercial break segue act to full-fledged performer at next year’s MTV Video Music Awards. Many of Robyn’s fans took to the web to express their disappointment that her “Dancing On My Own” performance was disrupted for a Verizon commercial.

2010 MTV Music Video Award Photo Recap

In: Donovan, Music, TV Shows

The 2010 MTV Music Video Awards are officially in the history books. What will the footnote be for this year’s telecast… zzzzzzzzz snoozefest. . Seriously, I found myself fast-forwarding through a lot of it this year. Perhaps because, there wasn’t that one big water cooler moment, everyone would be talking about the next day, or maybe because host Chelsea Handler failed to make me laugh or was it the lackluster performances. Whatever it was, it just didn’t live up to the hype. Maybe I’m being a little harsh due to the fact I high expectations for the show. Regardless of the negative nelly overall opinion, there were a few memorable moments worth mentioning. As a side note, can you spot SYTYCD alums Mark Kanemura and Neil Haskell in the picture above?

Vote: 2010 MTV VMA Fashion Battle

In: Donovan, Fashion

While most people watch the MTV Video Music Awards for out-of-this-world performances or insane WTF moments, there are plenty who tune in just to see what the celebrities are wearing. Especially whenever Lady Gaga is present, you know you’ll be in for a visual feast. It seemed whenever The Fame Monster took home an award, she was wearing another unforgettable outfit.

When she won the award for “Best Pop Video“, she wore a voluminous black Giorgio Armani dress. To accept “Best Video of The Year“, she wore a “meat dress” by designer Franc Fernandez. The meat was treated and cleaned and no blood was dripping. But more importantly, did it smell? For her grand entrance on the white carpet, Gaga wore Alexander McQueen head to toe to pay homage to her friend.

Now that you have all three looks side-by-side, which one did she rock the best? Personally, I thought she looked amazing in the McQueen ensemble. Vote below. Be sure to read the rest of this post to vote in other fashion battles from last night’s VMAs.

Robyn Covers Bjork’s Hyperballad

In: Music, Topher

I came across a video of current successful Swedish pop princess Robyn doing a version of Bjork‘s Hyperballad today. She performed the song with a full orchestra at the Polar Music Prize ceremony. Bjork was one of the recipients of the award, and was sitting right in front of Robyn as she sang.

It’s awful. I hate to say that since I love Bjork and Robyn, but Robyn does not have the chops to belt out such a vocal heavy song such as Hyperballad. I felt a little uncomfortable watching the blonde pixie dressed up as the “president of the Philipines”, struggle with the loud high notes. Bjork didn’t seem to happy either. Look at her expression at 1:42, eeps. I’d be a little peeved if I were her too if someone covered a 15 year old song of mine, considering all the great music I’ve been putting out since then.

I had high hopes for this before I heard it. Robyn has some great emotional songs, and it would seem like she could really give a powerful performance of the song, but she doesn’t put any life into it. When I saw Bjork perform this at Sasquatch back in 2007 it was one of the most thrilling live performances I’ve ever seen.

First Look: Robyn “Hang With Me”

In: Music, Patrick, Videos

First off, let’s get this out of the way that I’m SO jealous that Alex got to see Robyn & Kelis in concert in LA over the weekend – Amazing. That being said, I woke up this morning to a new video from Robyn for her single, “Hang With Me,” which is…you know…almost as good as seeing her and Kelis in concert. Wah wah.

Robyn’s videos are always incredibly visually stimulating and this one is no exception. There’s a lot going on in this video. Robyn invites you to hang with her in this video as she portrays herself…performing in concert, traveling, signing autographs for fans, and just hanging out – showing more of her real life and what that must be like, rather than just a story that goes along with the lyrics.

After her tour with Kelis, she’s releasing Body Talk Part 2 on September 6th which will contain a duet with none other than Snoop Dogg.
