Her eight-song EP, the first of three planned for release this year, begins with the percolating club banger “Don’t (expletive) Tell Me What to Do,” which offers a laundry list of vices and guilt-inducing woes. “Dancehall Queen,” a collaboration with… Continue

"Not being able to put out another record until another five years after touring seemed uninspiring to me- so it's in an album in parts. It's a way of breaking it up a bit. It allowed me to record and tour at the same time. So that was the main reason for doing it – a practical solution. It influenced a lot of the visuals and relates to how people consume music these days, I like shorter albums, I don't think they have to be like 15 songs now."

"I love being on stage and performing with my band, but I think once you
take the music out of the studio, something happens and it takes on a
life of its own. That's the most amazing thing about being on the road
because you get to experience how the music is making its own way into
people's lives and that's really really nice."

"“Play me some new kind of sound/Something true and sincere,” she sings in “None of Dem,” produced by the Norwegian electronic-music duo Royksopp. But her swagger hasn’t left her. The album’s grating opener, whose full title is unprintable here, makes a litany of complaints feel like a string of boasts. And “Dancehall Queen,” an ode to 1990s Euro-dub produced by Mr. Ahlund and Diplo, finds her alone in a crowd again, but without the angst. “I came to dance, not… Continue

"She's also managed to make a particular emotion her own: that of being heartbroken on the dancefloor.It makes for suffocatingly great pop, most notable on single "Dancing on my Own", a comet trail of sadness and exhilaration that's easily equal of Robyn's breakthrough hit "With Every Heartbeat". - Check out the full article from NME above… Continue

"While "Robyn" dealt mostly with vulnerability, "Body Talk" is about personal strength, and the singer sounds as fierce and confident as ever. On the driving lead single "Dancing on My Own", she plays the jilted ex "in the corner watching you kiss her," but in the end, she isn't sweating it: "I just came to say goodbye," she sings."
