Roysköpp returning with new album Senior this August

Just a quick post for you on the new album by Grammy winning Norwegian electronic duo Roysköpp. Senior, the follow up to last year’s Junior, will be released in August and will supposedly be more “atmospheric” than their previous work. Last year’s Junior spawned the hit single The Girl And The Robot which borrowed the vocal talents of Robyn. The following statement by the band gives a little more info on the album from their official site, and because I’m such a good blogger, I’ve included the video for The Girl And The Robot as a reminder of how brilliant it is.

So… 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!

All in all, even though the extra wait is boring/ bad/ painful, this should be seen as good news. Senior is a very special release to us, and we would never release it without making sure it was in the best possible hands, when it comes to record companies and distribution. In a way, it’s almost fitting that it being a truly unique album, it would have a difficult start in life.
