Robyn has released a new album, Honey, her first in eight years, back in October via Konichiwa/Interscope. Now she has shared a video for the album’s title track, “Honey.” Max Vitali, who has worked with Robyn before, directed the video, which starts with a lot of close-up and abstract images of the singer, before pulling back to reveal a club setting. It was shot in London with Robyn fans from all over the world. Watch it below, followed by Robyn’s upcoming tour dates.

Vitali had this to say about the video in a press release: “As with any video, or anything in life at all in fact, it’s all about having great people around. We had amazing, beautiful people that brought amazing, beautiful energy, both in front of and behind the camera, and I hope that comes across.”

Robyn had this to add: “I was amazed by the warmth and open spirit of the cast. It was lovely to dance with them during the shoot, the energy was so cool. Max and I both wanted this video to feel loose and free and I was just so impressed of how everyone who came to be a part of the shoot just got it and gave it their all.”

Honey includes “Missing U,” a new song (and accompanying short film) she shared in August (it was one of our Songs of the Week). An earlier version of the album’s title track, “Honey,” appeared in the series finale of HBO’s Girls last year and then she shared the final version of the song as the album’s second single. Robyn fans had been eager for her to release the song ever since its Girls debut, with some using the hashtag #ReleaseHoneyDamnit. Then she shared the third single from the album, “Human Being,” which features Zhala.

Honey is the follow-up to 2010’s 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.

Robyn had this to say about the album in a previous 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.”
