Hello world!

12th January, 2009

Phil Lynott once so eloquently said “The boys are back in town”, and never before have those words felt more accurate than now – for us at least. Every once in a while we surface to share our music and shed some light in an otherwise bleak reality. And that time is soon upon us, Ladies & Gents. Our third installment, called “Junior”, will be out on the 23rd of March 2009.

Sounds self centered and pompous, you say? Yes indeed! We’re so confident because this time around we’ve worked with the likes of Robyn and Lykke Li, as well as old time friends Anneli Drecker and Karin Dreijer – hence our enthusiasm!

Below you’ll find an intriguing tracklist over the songs featured on the new album. Oh, and make sure to get our new song “Happy Birthday” (for free) – a fun little piece we’ve made in shameless celebration of ourselves (our birthday was on the 15th of December).

Until then, dear friends…

Best,

Señor B + Señor B

Röyksopp ‘Junior’ tracklist:

  1. Happy Up Here
  2. The Girl And The Robot
  3. Vision One
  4. This Must Be It
  5. Röyksopp Forever
  6. Miss It So Much
  7. Tricky Tricky
  8. You Don’t Have A Clue
  9. Silver Cruiser
  10. True To Life
  11. It’s What I Want
  • You know…for you album Junior, you should add lyrics.

  • Senor A

    Welcome back, Maestros! Can’t wait to hear ‘Junior’.

  • forvirret

    23th March is gonna be the absolute highlight of 2009 – no the highlight of the whole decade! Looking forward to see you guys on Øya! (Hope you’ll play the Alpha Male-versoin from Molde – fantastic)

  • Can. Not. Wait.

    So excited for the next installment.

    Will there be any singles before the album hits?

  • Sae Dam

    Cheers!!

  • yamfun

    I have been waiting since October 07.
    Will Korene and I Wanna Know from Aker Molde on the new album?

  • koenodokio

    I’m wondering what kind of great video you have in mind for “Happy Up Here”. Does anyone know when it will be ready for MTV?

  • ryandavidchadwick

    Hi I CAN NOT WAIT xxx

  • yoyo

    That’s a great track! Can’t wait to ear some more!!!

  • Jeremy

    I am sooo excited. Are we going to get a deluxe version? I pray to the gods we do.

  • Bjorn

    Happy Up Here is amazing, great direction you took! 🙂

  • Hero_Raymond

    The new lineup is looking impressive. I’ve heard Lykke Li on Sirius before and thought she was a good singer. I’m even more impressed now that she’ll be on the new album. I wonder which song she’s singing on…

    Anyway, since I don’t live in a place that is inaccessible to your tours (the middle of Texas sucks for Electronica), I always look forward to your studio albums. Thanks for the good work.

  • Excellent!!!

    Happy Up Here sounds brilliant.

    We’ll wait for your next gig in Barcelona. 🙂

  • freshfunk

    Nice to see you guys back! Looking forward to the album and live show. For those that want to get an early ticket to a gig in the UK, the band have just been confirmed to play at the Southbank in London in April! http://www.southbankcentre.co.uk/ether/

  • robertfat

    Happy up here is fantastic! This song is very similar to the style of Eple but “updated” and…Happy! And I’m sure that this new album will be best!
    But I’ve a request. Please, I’m begging you for a concert in Rome. We can’t wait much longer. Rome needs Röyksopp.
    P.S.: Good work for the site. My compliments

  • I love your music so much… I cannot wait for ‘Junior’ !

    All the best, and hope to see you in concert soon! 🙂

This newest album is going to be my “break-up, move on, do what I want with my life” album. Can’t wait. Going to UMF next month. Wish you were there.
