RÖYKSOPP & ROBYN PREMIERE ‘SAYIT' VIDEO
‘SAYIT' IS TAKEN FROM THE ‘DO IT AGAIN’ MINI ALBUM RELEASED ON 26TH MAY 2014
‘DO IT AGAIN’ TOUR RUNS THROUGHOUT SUMMER
Röyksopp and Robyn premiere the ‘SayIt’ video on H&M Life, taken from the forthcoming release of their ‘Do It Again’ mini album released on Dog Triumph via Wall of Sound and Cooking Vinyl on 26th May 2014.
‘SayIt' is a big thumping house track which features a near duet between Robyn and what sounds like an aroused robot. The ‘Sayit' video is directed by the Swedish design team Sandberg & Timonen and is set in a cold industrial environment amongst car wrecks, barbed wire and angry dogs. Röyksopp’s faces are covered by hoods. Robyn wears a spooky dress.
"Just the fact that I’m wearing a dress is quite scary, says Robyn. I usually don’t." The stylist Ellen af Geijerstam put it together with Patrik Söderstam who designed the clothes for Svein and Torbjørn.
"We wanted it to look both unsettling and elegant", says Svein Berge from Röyksopp.
‘Do It Again’ is the first single to be released from the mini album and is available now. Listen to ‘Do It Again’ here:

The ‘Do It Again’ tour with Röyksopp and Robyn, already described as one of the most exciting tours of the Summer, begins at Sonar Festival in Spain on 13th June 2014, and includes a headline slot on the BBC Radio 6 music stage at Latitude Festival on 19th July.

The mini album serves as an introduction to a new Röyksopp album to be released later this year, which will feature two of the tracks.
"This 5 track mini-album is the accumulation and embodiment of the synergy between Robyn and ourselves. We've intended this to be a diverse yet cohesive and thought through musical venture; it's meant to be an expression where pop & art reign side by side." (Röyksopp)
“Svein and Torbjörn and I started working on new music in the beginning of 2013, I´ve been going back and forth to Bergen to record and write with the boys up until recently. Collaborating with S & T is something I enjoy very much. In the beginning we just knew we wanted to do something together and then it started to feel more like a band thing than songs for a Röyksopp or Robyn album so we´re releasing this music together as a band you could say.” (Robyn)
The ‘Do It Again’ mini album represents the perfect coming together of three very original musical minds.
