Senior is streaming in full, right now!

6th September, 2010

Senior is the introverted, dwelling and sometimes graceful counterpart to last year’s Junior: brim-full with dark secrets and distorted memories, insisting I’m old, I’ve got experience… Senior is furthermore an album about age, horses and being subdued, with devils breathing down your neck. Each track is equally as important as its predecessor and successor. We feel that none of the tracks should be regarded outside of this context. Quite a “brave”/stupid thing to do in this day & age of iPods and cherrypicking, one might suggest. We couldn’t agree more – hell that’s even probably why we did it.

Best, Señor B + Señor B

In that spirit, listen to the full stream of Senior, start to finish right now at Hype Machine! http://hypem.com/artist/royksopp

You can pre-order Senior here.

    Amazing album!

    Well worth the wait.

  • cookiee_munster

    its amazing, i love it. i think it harks back to “melody am”

    i heard two songs from “Seinor” played on radio 1 VERY early on the radio a few days ago. “Senior Living” was played through the car radio driving to work in fog, the sun rising. it was a gorgeous few minuets. 🙂

    oh, and i agree about the horses comment that was made about the album 😉

  • VK

    Thank You, dear B&B!

  • ivionday

    Thanks for this. can’t wait to hear it.

  • forhours

    Wow, I knew that it was going to be good.. I just didn’t know how good!

    Amazing album, definitely one of my favorites already..

  • It’s an addictive Art work. Nine huge tracks that make you head fly. Can you see the colors?, i can. Can you feel the vibes?, i can. Can you stop listening? I can’t!

  • I totally want to make a music video for “The Alcoholic.” It’s such a fantastic song!

  • jo_s

    very promising!

  • Awesome album med fantastisk lyd! 🙂

  • granjak

    Hummmm.. there some pretty tracks but I’m quite disappointed by this new album. If Royksopp delivered this album as their first album, they would be tottaly unknown today!

  • Actually “The fear” converted me to a Royksopp fan.

  • I LOVE YOU ROYKSOPP! BUT THIS ALBUM I DON’T REALLY LIKE IT
    THIS ALBUM LACK VOCALS, I KNOW THAT YOU MIGHT TO SHOW AN ADULT STYLE MORE THAN JUNIOR ALBUM, AND I SEE THAT YOUR CHEMISTRY BECOME FROM YOUR EXCELLENT MUSIC AND THE SINGER THAT YOU CHOICE FOR EVERY SONG
    OBVIOUSLY THAT I THINK THIS IS A GREAT ALBUM, BUT I HOPED ANOTHER THING
    AND OBVIOUSLY THIS NOT WILL CHANGE MY ADMIRATION FOR ALL THE MUSIC THAT YOU MADE, I LOVE YOU ROYKSOPP FROM THE VERY FIRST TIME I LISNETED ONE OF YOUR SONG

  • miltonberle

    The Alcoholic is one the best songs that you have yet made…

  • VK

    Just can’t stop listening to Senior Living, boys. Magnificent sound. Has master Terje Rypdal helped You on this one?

  • mag

    The end of the last track resembles The KLF album Chillout a bit. Good piece.

  • bilberry_sky

    “The Alcoholic” is fantastic, album is amazing.
    Russia loves you, guys. looking forward to seeing you in Moscow.

  • Milla

    Another fantastic album!
    I always find your music infinitely positive. It epitomises happiness, in all its forms.
    Takk 🙂

  • spacejunkie

    Seriously…Huge Fan…Can’t be Serious.

    Silly.

  • Hank

    I just spent the past week listening to The Understanding which for some reason I never listened to after wearing out Melody A.M. and Junior to death! What’s up with that? Sombre Detune is at this moment my favorite song but I am at this moment listening through Senior and I must say… I’m liking what I hear!

    Very downtempo and chill…

  • langotriel

    jeg hørte en sånn en eh… fantastisk lyd ….

    Your music Bogglemind my senses!Great Work! I’ll listen to senior till the end of the world!!greetings from Italy!!

  • allcolor

    Congratulations for this new marvelous album !

    Thank you.

  • luvondrokswnoice

    Loving “Senior” so far. You two are brilliant, definitely admire that you guys went a little different direction with this one. Since “Junior” was an up-beat, dance-worthy album featuring primarily female vocals, and “Senior” is an intense, emotional instrumental journey, if you topped of the lineup with a follow-up album featuring YOUR vocals (I love the girls, but your vocals just make magic happen!) over both bumpin’ and soothing beats, I would be the happiest Röyksopp fan EVER. ever. Can’t get enough of you guys.

  • Andrea

    WoW! Awesome! Love it!

  • AdamGW

    Keep doing whatever you guys want to do. One of the reasons I love you is the fact that you haven’t caved to the industry and made music that “people want to listen to”. You make musing that YOU want to make, and therein lies your greatness. I had always hoped you’d make another album with that Melody AM “sound”. Senior does that, IMO, and you’ve done an awesome job!

  • Kjøpte nettopp senior! 😀 Elsker albumet! 😀

  • gregorybotha

    Finally, after what felt like waiting for forever. Senior is everything I hoped it would be. Well done! Great for some late night listening on Vinyl and an excellent second half to Junior!!!

  • Snow

    I love your album guys, but was a little bit dissapointed when I found out theres a bonus track thats only available in iTunes, and only if you buy the whole album there. Any good suggestions on how to get my hands on that track without buying the album a second time? 🙂

  • granjak

    After a first listen I was a bit desappointed by this new album..
    But now, I want to thank you Guys for all these beautifull tracks. They help me to go through a trouble period of my life.

  • Absolutely loving the new album guys, I’ve got it pumping away in my earholes as I type this. (the smashing reworking of Tricky has just left the room, and now The Alcoholic has come for a visit)

    It does indeed have some flavours of Melody A.M. in there. Thumbs up (and all that jazz) to the Röyksopp!

  • Ulrich

    Snow you took the words right out of my mouth, loving the album, but also disappointed to discover an extra track which wasn’t included when you ordered the mp3s from this site, just thought that by supporting the artists directly that you would expect to receive all the tracks…

    on another note, forsaken cowboy is great, the fear is sinister and the album is a treat!

  • After two really poor albums you made a marvelous one again. Looking forward to your live show in Holland!

  • cookie

    Yep I agree with Snow and Ulrich. I would have waited for the album but I too thought you’d get more of the profit buying off here. Can you release it for us?? Great album by the way.

  • Bought your album today at HMV 🙂
    I have all your albums limited editions on CD and Melody A.M. – 2 records pack as well 🙂
    My favourite tracks on new album:
    – The Alcoholic
    – Tricky Two
    – Senior Living
    – Forsaken Cowboy
    Dark ambienty trip, mystery sounds on the album. Reminds me a bit of Aphex Twin early stuff. Especially the last hidden track which is very scary.

  • The Yorkshire Tea Company

    Just amazing. Senior is to Melody A.M. as Junior was to The Understanding. You need to come and perform in Britain again guys, although I could see a live rendition of this album being a dark and troubling experience. It’d still be fantastic though.

    Also, I’m getting some major David Lynch vibe from The Drug – which makes it even more awesome!

  • Senior is definitely one of the best Royksopp albums of all times 🙂 I was not deeply surprised when the album laid a nice blanket of 100% perfection over my life. There has been a lot of crap going on in my life and I am glad every one of your albums has been my life. Thank you for making such a amazing album. Anyone who doesn’t like this is a wanker 🙂

  • Frida Frost

    Thanks for an awesome album!!! 😀

  • The more I listen to it the more I like it! 🙂

  • leafhound

    Stunning album, yet again Royksopp have proven their incredible musical talent. Two albums in two years; we are very lucky people!

  • Thank you for the new album. It finally arrived in my mail today, and I couldn’t be more pleased. Thank you for the decade of astounding sounds.

  • razzberry

    I listened to the whole album (ah finally!!) and there’s something so romantic and yet so sad about the song Senior Living. It’s the song that spoke to me the most. It’s nostalgic, and yet depressing in some ways, but all the while, you feel as sense of hope, as though the dreams are still within reach.

    I know this album is not meant to be taken apart, but to be appreciated as a whole, but this song just takes you through so many emotions…

    Absolutely a wonderful album. I hope you guys can bring your hearts to Canada. We need you here!!

  • jimo

    It is the star-studded music which predicts finally a good extraterrestrial contact. The boys, you take bring out a hopeful refreshing sound

  • Glarktastic83

    Cant say i liked this album as much as others….only a couple tracks i found enjoyable. Kindof a letdown, still a huge fan though.

  • mcmegan

    Tricky Tricky was my least favourite on Junior but my favourite is Tricky 2 on Senior. How did I not hear that wonderful sound on Junior? This is a great album to take me through the (southern hemisphere) summer 🙂 Thanks guys. I still cannot tire of your wonderful music.
    True to Life is still the best thing you have done, and I will love you guys forever.

  • vkindustrial

    Miért van itt mindenki elájulva a “Senior” című albumtól? Szerintem csak egy erős közepes, de csak azért, mert Röyksopp van a borítóra írva. A “Tricky Tricky” pl. sokkal nagyobb durranás volt a “Junior”-on, mint a középszerű v2. Számomra a “Forsaken Cowboy” és a “The Fear” – ez utóbbi igazi hátborzongató chillout téma – című dalok érnek csak valamit; a többi elmegy a fülem mellett. Ezt a lemezt még csiszolgatni kellett volna, Srácok!
    3 pont az 5-ből, de csak az elfogultságom miatt…

  • Senor A

    I agree with mcmegan. I didn’t care much for Tricky Tricky, but Tricky Two is one of my favorites from Senior. Those syncopated guitar sounds take this song into the funky statosphere! This album is a real grower. I really liked it upon first listen, but the more I spin it the more this album is quickly becoming one of my favorites from you guys. Senior is a true electronic masterpiece and essential Röyksopp!

  • montini

    I think that the best song is “Senior Living” – usually I’m not fan of guitar sound but here is fantastic solo! =)) But I’m not sure that it is a guitar! =)

  • Jeremy

    Thank you for giving us this fine piece of musical art!

  • Balika1987

    Amazing & demanding album guys. Thank you for the experience!

  • Mrs Barbie T (Ken) Brundtland baby mama

    If only “Senior Living” had been embedded in my Baby Mobile as an infant. I would have been in my sleeper laying in my crib getting tipsy off baby milk. you all should make baby mobiles with the senior living track embedded in it to your cabbage sales repertoire. I’m seeing NOK signs get these babies started early on listening to some Good music. It would make all the baby mama’s happy lol. Torbjorn (Ken doll) what up! or as you all would say Hallo =Op
