Robyn has announced a new album, Honey, her first in eight years. Honey is due out October 26 via Konichiwa/Interscope. While the tracklist has yet to be revealed, it includes “Missing U,” a new song (and accompanying short film) she shared in August (check it out below again). An earlier version of the album’s title track appeared in the series finale of HBO’s Girls last year. Above is the cover art.

It’s her first solo song since her 2010 album Body Talk. The album finds the Swedish musician teaming up Joseph Mount (of Metronomy) and also features production work from long-time collaborator Klas Åhlund, along with Adam Bainbridge (aka Kindness), Mr. Tophat, and Zhala. It was recorded in studios in Stockholm, London, Paris, New York, and Ibiza. “Missing U” was previously one of our Songs of the Week.

Robyn had this to say about the album in a press release: “This sweet place, like a very soft ecstasy. Something that’s so sensual, and so good. I danced a lot when I was making it. I found a sensuality and a softness that I don’t think I was able to use in the same way before. Everything just became softer.”
