Robyn, 31, has evolved into a better and more popular musician and songwriter.
I asked if she feels vindicated, having leap-frogged the standard record-label routine.
"I'm not looking for that kind of recognition. I don't think I have anything to prove," she says. "I did these changes very much for myself."

This is the second time that pop singer Robyn has joined forces with electronica band Teddybears for a rip-roaring time in stereo, and I’m honestly not too sure why it doesn’t happen more often. More of this, please! She’s replaced Mapei, the original recording artist who was featured on the Teddybears album Devil’s Music. I’m assuming for a more mainstream appeal.…Continue

Audience members danced and pogo'ed, pointing their fingers in the air. One guy came up and asked, "Are you writing a story? Just…Continue

How much does your show change based on the size of the place you're playing?
Even though we play bigger venues now and then, it's still not very often that we do it, so the show is mostly adapted for a club-size venue. We're starting to develop what the stage looks like a little bit more. It's going to keep developing throughout the whole year -- we have…

"I wanted to look into a new way of recording and releasing music that would allow me to tour and record at the same time," she said during a recent phone interview. "Later on it became a concept of how the albums were. It was just another kind of flow."
