Damn, Robyn is consistent. Ever since she broke out on the North American charts with “Show Me Love”, she’s continued to put out great songs and remixes. Her 2005 self-titled album had many great hits like “Be Mine”, and “Handle Me”.
Since then she’s done tonnes of collaborations with Röyksopp, Kleerup, Christian Falk, and Basement Jaxx. Every time I hear new Robyn song, I instantly love it.
Imagine my excitement then, when I learned that she’ll be releasing THREE new albums soon, the first one coming on June 14th. You can check out the first single
“Dancing On My Own” “None of Dem” on her official web page: robyn.com. It’s pretty amazing. Not as clubby as song of her previous songs, it’s got a dark heavy beat, with some slow low note vocals. Sounds like she’s taking a little influence from the recent surge of dubstep.
The new album will feature songs with Röyksopp, Kleerup, and *gasp* Diplo. niiiice.
According to TMZ, What Women Don’t Want, star Mel Gibson’s wife Robyn has filed for divorce, ironically signing the papers on Good Friday. They do not have a prenuptial agreement, so it looks like the $900 million is going to be split 50/50, in accordance with the California divorce laws. They have seven children together and have been married since 1980.
Apparently, the two have grown apart ever since Braveheart Brokenheart Mel was arrested for DUI back in 2006. It is also speculated they’ve actually been “separated” for a couple years now.
They have issued a statement, stating: “Throughout our marriage and separation we have always strived to maintain the privacy and integrity of our family and will continue to do so.”
Upcoming films for Mel include Edge of Darkness, which is in post-production, and it was recently announced he’ll be in a film called Sam and George.
I’ve always been a huge fan of Röyksopp since I first heard their album “The Understanding” back in 2005. My favorite track from that album was “What else is there?”. They feature amazing vocalists such as Robyn (who doesn’t love this very unique artist?) & Lykke Le who has such an amazing and very distinct voice. So today I downloaded their latest album called “Junior” which features a track with Robyn….AMAZING!
Another artist that reminds me a lot of Royksopp is Kleerup….you may think, “who the hell are these artists?”. You are actually more familiar with Kleerup as they did the song “With Every Heartbeat” yes! by Robyn. So if you like Kleerup…you’ll definitely love Royksopp. Listen to their new album here: Royksopp-Junior
