Robyn to Release Final Album in "Body Talk" Trilogy
Thu, 21 Oct 2010 10:48:40
On November 22, Cherrytree Records will release Body Talk PT 3, the final in a trilogy of 2010 albums from Swedish singin' and songwritin' goddess Robyn. The new record will contain 15 tracks: five brand new songs, plus five tracks each from Body Talk PT 1 and PT 2.
With "Time Machine," one of the new tracks, Robyn comes full circle in her career, collaborating once again with Max Martin, who produced "Show Me Love" and "Do You Know (What It Takes)" on her first album, Robyn Is Here.
Don't forget that Robyn will appear on Gossip Girl as a surprise guest at Blair's birthday party. She'll perform "Hang with Me" in the episode, which will air on The CW on Monday, November 1, at 9:00 PM.
Robyn will tour with Maluca and Natalia Kills will open on the upcoming US run. Dates are below.
"I'm going to keep mixing up my tours with studio time and am hoping to stick to this new way of releasing music next year," Robyn explained in a statement, offering an update. "This is the third, last part and completion of the Body Talk album. It was never my goal to break some kind of a world record in how many songs I could release in a year. Although I think it would count as a pretty good attempt, it's been about the process for me. It's been very interesting to try and figure out a more organic way of making music. A way that is unbiased and has its starting point in what feels logical to me, but also to the listeners.
"Even though it was never a conceptual idea, but a practical solution to the problem of getting bored with just doing one thing at a time, it has influenced not only the music, but all the visual content for the album as well. And the way I've communicated with press and listeners. It's been amazing to share the process with you. As soon as I have had an idea of what I'm doing so have the fans and that interaction has been super interesting and fun to me. As I'm writing this, I am still mixing the third album. There are five new songs ready to be released and I'm also including music from Body Talk PT 1 and 2 to complete this body of work in what will make the turbo version of the Body Talk album. Thanks for tagging along with me on this ride!"
