Cherrytree Records recording artist Robyn announces that she’ll launch a North American tour – her third in six months – on January 26th, 2011. The outing will kick off at Toronto’s Sound Academy and include a show at New York City legendary Radio City Music Hall on Saturday, February 5th. See below for a complete itinerary.
Robyn will perform on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” on Wednesday, November 24th. Body Talk, the third in Robyn’s trilogy of 2010 albums, was released today by Cherrytree Records. Fans can pick it up today for just $3.99 as the “Daily Deal” on Amazon MP3:http://www.smarturl.it/robyn
Robyn kicked off her current tour in Miami with what Spin.com described as “a hurricane performance.” The run – which features special guests Maluca and Cherrytree Records label-mate Natalia Kills – concludes tomorrow with a show at The Warfield in San Francisco.
Billboard.com called her one of the “greatest pop performers of this decade,” noting: “She's cracked the code of how to make dance-based music work live, single-handedly making track acts seem tedious and obsolete, and over-the-top arena shows unnecessary. At the Fillmore…she was a woman both possessed and in charge.”
“Swedish pop princess Robyn returned to New York City and took the town by storm,” said The Huffington Post in a review of her sold-out show at Terminal 5. “In what could be one of the greatest performances I have ever seen by a solo artist, Robyn took the stage like an unleashed wild animal and was ready to entertain. Backed by two drummers and two keyboardists, she packs more punch and energy than a case of Red Bull. Opening with ‘Fembot,’ and never seeming to let up one bit, she turned the venue upside down…”
NME declared Body Talk, “might just be the album of the year.” It contains 15 tracks: five brand new songs plus five tracks each from Body Talk PT 1 and PT 2. The new collection illustrates the breadth of Robyn’s recent collaborations – from Diplo (“Dancehall Queen”), Kleerup (“In My Eyes”) and Snoop Dogg (“U Should Know Better”) to Röyksopp (“None of Dem”), Savage Skulls (“Love Kills”) and, of course, her longtime producer Klas Ahlund, who was instrumental in making the Body Talk trilogy. 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. Both songs charted in the Top 10 hits of the Billboard Hot 100.
US Weekly called Body Talk PT 1, released in June 2010, “the best pop album of the year” and Pitchfork.com gave it an 8.5 out of 10, observing: “Robyn doesn't just walk the line between what she has called the ‘commercial’ and ‘tastemaker’ realms. She obliterates it.” Released in September, Body Talk PT 2 earned an “A” from Entertainment Weekly and 3 ½ stars from both Rolling Stone, which described it as “another batch of great, club-ready songs” and People.
Robyn performed her current single, “Dancing On My Own,” with Deadmau5 at MTV’s Video Music Awards and appeared in a recent episode of “Gossip Girl,” performing "Hang with Me."
