Whilst this blogs' main players are off galivanting around the globe I thought it was my duty to come by on the account of the excitement surrounding the return of Robyn outside her domestic market. She's back with an EP, tour, collaborations with Basement Jaxx and a new studio album all for us UK pop sluts. For months Robyns return has been in the works and now it seems with places like Popjustice recieving goodies in the post its actually happening. Hopefully DontStopthepop will be able to be the place to bring you all the hot news, promo details, album news and tour dates.
DontStopThePop has a very special place in its huge heart for Robyn. It was here where many a new or unreleased Robyn track was premiered. You heard the sublime Christian Falk collaboration Dream On first here. The album from which that single was taken from, People Say, was finally released in Sweden & has got the blog SoundsofSweden in a fluster. Check out yet another People Say Robyn/Christian collab, C.C.C, over at SOS now(check the links to the right).
While there hasnt been an Robyn album this year her fans have been kept busy with new material in the form of collaborations. We've had the aforementioned Christian Falk stuff, girliestyle/cobrastyle with Teddybears and of course Basement Jaxx who plan to release the Robyn track, Hey You, next year. All of which is very good...
...But alas, With Every Heartbeat is the best thing shes done this year. Yes better than Dream On, Girliestyle, Hey You and CCC. Rob might disagree but i think it might be the best thing shes ever recorded. And we, I, hope you like it too.
Alas, DontStopthePop has had this track for some time but with the immanent return to the UK its time to celebrate and crack open the fine wine. When Rob is back he'll answer any questions you might have regarding it as I have no idea when it was recorded, what its for and who it was produced by. All I know is that theres a Teddybears connection, it was recorded this year and I don't think it was ever meant to be an Robyn release. Like with the Clea track this will be available for a very limited time so act quick.
