This week saw Röyksopp announcing some much appreciated updates on the follow-up to 2009’s successful album ‘Junior’ which spawned hits such as ‘Happy Up Here’ and ‘The Girl And The Robot’ and featured guest contributions from Robyn and The Knife’s Karin Dreijer.
The aptly titled ‘Senior’ will see its release in late August this year. Writes the duo in a statement on Royksopp.com:
“… Regarding the release of Senior. As you correctly have noted, we promised you a release this April. We would like to start by apologizing for any false expectations this statement created. We love you, and we would never purposely misinform you. You see, instead of the release actually happening in April, a lot of other things happened.Long story short, the toppling of the record industry finally rippled its way into our universe. As you all know, record companies have been having an “interesting” time lately, to say the least. Because of this, to ensure the best possible release scenario for Senior, we have gone through many changes on exactly who we’re releasing it with.
But now it’s all come together.
The album will be released at the end of August. And, even better, for those of you who live in places records are not released on time (and for everyone else too), we will also make the album available here on this website!(www.royksopp.com ed.note)”
