Track Of The Month October: I Wanna Know

19th October, 2010

New look, new song – we simply never stop giving…

And behold the mind-boggling spectacle before you

Röyksopp taking their morning-stroll through the enchanted forest of Lyngen. And they bring gifts. This month we’ll unleash a fan-favorite (that’s what we’ve been told at least…) that we’ve played live occasionally – the loud and proud I Wanna Know!

This track marks the return of Röyksopp’s energetic elaborate sonic’s:

Play safe…

  • swizzler

    The wav link is fine… You have to L.Click trhough and the download will start. R. Clicking the wav link and ‘Saving As…” will just get you a .php file.

    The wav d/l’d fine for me…

  • omg yes! finally! thank u guys. i luv u

  • mag

    I hope the times of some more experimental and less commercial stuff aren’t gone forever. This one is ok, but way too commercial while I prefer Melody AM followed by Senior. Most of the rest is just some sort of widespread disco. Please try to keep away from that commercial material as much as possible.

  • chipokmon

    Great song, this made my day! Thanks 😀


    This is how Royksopp must sound like in future. (mm) Just like in good old Junior times. (h)

    Keep it going IN THIS WAY!

    i can’t stop listening.

    heard the song first at ur concert in berlin and i was blown away and now i’m back in the days when every second word was röyksopp 🙂

  • matucana

    What a surprise!!!You’re so generous with your fans!I’ve been looking for “I wanna Know” and “Korene= were you ever wanted” from the very first time that i listen to them. I have loved so much the concert versions and i feel a bit disappointed(a very little bit at least!) when i listen to the new sound on “Were you ever wanted”…so confiding in your “never stop giving attitude” i hope that the first version called “Korene” could be one of your track of the month because the song was a little pearl, a soundscape full of royksopp essence!!!!! Anyway all the music that you produce is absolutely gracefull and so far from what you can hear around!!love Matucana from Italy

  • Ho. My. God, this is AWESOME !

  • Sounds Fantastic 😀 !
    Thank u guys.

  • trisantelmo

    I Love this song! It´s really great =D ¿Whose are the vocals?, they´re really great =D

    I would like that “Where ever you wanted” been the next Track of the month (as matucana xD); i´ve been so afortunated to listened to it and it… uff… I love it!!!

  • andyoo

    “I Wanna Know” how to be as cool as Röyksopp.


  • chromal

    Thanks for this free release, guys! I can’t wait to receive my UK-import Senior LP album!

  • haz

    I played your album for the people who was asleep after a party, they stopped snoring,

  • vkindustrial

    Azért durva, hogy a Track Of The Month-ból jobb dalokat lehet letöltögetni, mint a Senior című – számomra – felejthető album. Kár volt azt a “nyugdíjas-öreguras” lemezt erőltetni. Én inkább vártam volna még 1 évet, hogy egy tényleg csúcs Röyksopp dalokat tartalmazó albumot élvezhessek, mint pl. az I Wanna Know. Ez az, amiért a Röyksopp-ot szeretem, és valószínűleg nem vagyok vele egyedül. Még egy olyan baklövést, mint a Senior volt, ne kövessetek el.
    Az október hónap dala: 10 pont a 10-ből. 🙂

  • All I can say is: Røyksopp Forever!

  • Excellent! A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. You always have freshwebradio support!
    keep music-ing! :-)))))))))

  • zyla

    vkiindustrial -> Ízlések és pofonok, de azért nem nevezném baklövésnek az albumot! Kicsit próbálj disztingválni…
    Mióta létezik a Royksopp, folyamatos a színvonal és a stílus, mindenféle hangulatú albumuk van, ez most ilyen lett!!!!!!!
    tehát én azért ennek is örülök, mint rajtam kívül még pár százezer ember.
    “This Space” is also gorgeous, but this was simply awesome.

  • ur the greatest electronic musicians ever existed!
    i love your music very much! thank you!

  • Ady

    Can’t get enough of these guys ! Love it !

  • Ame el sonido de esta canción, simplemente genial y bailable, los queremos en Chile pronto.

  • Distephano

    Another amazing song. Thanks guys!

  • iworshipthemoon

    I love every single song you guys have ever made. Every single one. It is impossible for you to make a song that ISN’T amazing.

    I love you Röyksopp.

  • rom49140

    Quel plaisir pour les oreilles ! J’ai attendu Senior avec impatience, vous ne m’avez encore une fois pas déçu, et ça depuis Melody A.M.. Vous êtes de grands musiciens, parmis les meilleurs des années 2000, et ça va continuer pour les années 2010. Torbjorn, Svein, on vous attend en France !!! Royksopp forever !

  • p2b

    Ya rocks guys !
    Yet waiting you here in Milan: nobody will ever forget that incredible night you gifted all of us few years ago at ROlling Stones … more than 3 hours of live performance, You and all of us really kicked out the concert hall by the property owner who switched off the electric power 🙂

  • titoti

    VERY AWESOME SONG. Greatings from France
    listening royksopp since 5 years

  • wcd

    I’ve like this track since you released it last year, but I accidentally started playing this in mid track cranked up a lot louder than I usually do. Yeee-Haww! Some songs are just meant to be heard loud.

    Tusen takk!

    I hope you come to Phoenix, Arizona some day.

    (I can’t believe people complained about this *!*FREE*!* song. Come on people, if you don’t like it, don’t listen to it and don’t complain to Röyksopp. They’ve done you no harm. Besides, how many artists did you used to love, but they lost their muse and your interest from pounding the same nail album after album? I hope Röyksopp always follows their muse.)

  • cliff.s.

    New and enthused fan (with the tshirt to prove)…bummed my fav track I Wanna Know mp3 link no longer working. Thanks for all the others…you guys inspire!!!
