The Drug…

11th August, 2010

The Drug CoverThis highly synthetic drug is the latest craze. Gentle and appealing at first. Repeated use will result in severe personality distortion. Hear that little sound in your head? That ever decaying little “melody”? ..That’s your mind going…

Ahead of the Senior album release Röyksopp have prepared The Drug a sublime slice of electronic music that becomes devastating with repeat exposure! Listen in below or download from iTunes and most other digital stores now!

    As usual, I find myself in a Landscape of Trolls, Fjords and a lot of space and fresh air. If Junior is all like this….. It wil be in my car permanently like your previous albums also did.

    Ez eléggé középszerű és jellegtelen volt. Semmiféle Röyksopp motívumot, stiláris jegyet nem találtam benne, bárki készíthette volna felőlem. Ha ilyen lesz az egész album, azt hiszem, megmarad a pénzem. :(

  19. Jokke says:

    Great!! :D

  20. Forwox says:

    Stunning! This is my drug! Royksopp <3<3<3

  21. Sibi Gauer says:

  22. lassa says:

  29. thebisonx says:

    Awesome. Can’t wait to hear the rest of the album! Cheers from Canada.

  30. Herzraser says:

    mesmerizing off beat bass line with chilling electro beats and a nice decaying little melody which fades away (in amnesia?) – well done!

  31. Skippy says:

    Juste amazing :D

  32. mancreject says:

    This is pretty FUCKIN’ GOOD. God bless Scandanavia!!!!

    Egyet értek. Elég semmilyen ez a szám, bár nekem azért kellemes. Persze egy Röyksopp-tól nem csak egy kellemes számot várnánk.

  38. sidek says:

    Amúgy hihetetlen, hogy itt mindenki mennyire el van ájulva tőle.

  39. pballasiotes says:

    I played this song for my psychologist and he said it will be the end of me. I told him it will be a most epic ending. This song is a masterpiece!! I cant wait for the 13th, Senior is gonna be so nuts!! Excellent work guys!

    No puedo creer que me sigan sorprendiendo despues de tanto tiempo escuchandolos!! Saludos desde Argentina…

  43. elaotse says:

    Esta genial; una mezcla de beats nuevos, un toque diferente en el estilo de Royksopp!! Cuento los dias desde que anunciaron la venta y ya casi estamos ahi, sep 13!! Son los mejores Royksopp!!

  44. VideoBIT says:

    Nice work, guys! I love your music! Röyksopp forever!

  45. VK says:

    No offense boys, but there are some things my heart doesn’t belong to – especially Tricky on Junior, Your TOTM July and this (Drug, I mean). But…
    Senior Living gives me feelin’ that I don’t happen to know yet – to the sounds of it I’m already old, and my memory pulls out fragments of my youth: a girl I was in love with, boys from my class, my first tape recorder, and my parents – young and looking forward to the future of their elder son…
    Truly a masterpiece. Thank You! VK

  46. ashdeath says:

    Wowww, the tune looks so amazing, i’m waiting for the full album!!!, cheers

  47. Patriste says:

    Avec un bon casque, ca fait tourner la tete…

  48. koenodokio says:

    Will there be a video for this song, or for one of the Senior songs? I’m so excited for the whole album! Love this new dark wave of music.
