Track of the Moment

29th August, 2011

Hello everybody! Yup, when you least expect it, we show up like two happy little gnomes. Bearing gifts. Gifts in the form of music. You see, we know we have been away from this place for a while now, but we assure you: new material is being brewed. Just in case, as an apology of sorts, we have chosen to present you with two tracks this time.

To start off, there’s our edit/remix of The Irrepressibles‘ ‘In This Shirt’. Every now and then we make edits/remixes of other people songs – with no other intention than to entertain ourselves and perhaps use them in DJ-sets etc. Somehow word got out that we were making an edit of ‘In This Shirt’, and main-man Jaime of The Irrepressibles was kind enough to send us all separate parts (vocals/ strings etc.) to make the edit even better. We were even given permission to post the remix/edit here on our website for the world to hear, so thanks to The Irrepressibles…

Secondly, we present you with a new Röyksopp track called ‘Shores Of Easy’. As you know, we never want to dictate how our music is being used, but we feel that this time, a small guideline is in place: this track is best served when calm. Thus, if you are so inclined – we feel that this could serve as a perfect soundtrack to that borderline state between being awake and being asleep – the state where everything seems possible.

…aaand just a little note, ‘Shores Of Easy’ has only been performed once (live on “KCRW”) and due to popular demand we’ve decided to put it up here on ‘Track Of The Moment’. The Track, however, is not indicative of things to come…

 

Stay tuned!

With much love,
Señor B + B

    thank you from Italy

    Shores of Easy is so relaxing, love it. I wish I could see you guys in Norway, I’m studying abroad in Copenhagen and was so excited to be able to see you guys in Europe but the show is sold out!! So brutal, but I’ll definitely be seeing you guys at some point. Still wakin up every morning to the 2:00 mark of The Alcoholic :D

  14. nee says:

    Thanks B & B, but just so you know…I’ve been listening to Shores of Easy for months now. I like my unpolished live studio version cause I recorded it during the live web cast…plus you guys performed it in bath robes! That alone makes it more special to me! ;p Along with the live studio version of The Alcoholic-a rare live Senior performance :)

    Thousands of miles of road I have crossed with a little help from Shores of Easy…watched sunrises and sunsets…just after a thunder storms…or as a track to put on to calm the husband after a hard day of work…or better yet-in our studio when my sister and I are recreating the internal processes of the earth…in less time of course ;)

    So thanks for writing and performing the soundtracks I choose to live my life by, be inspired from, and all that. :) :)

  15. picatso says:

    Doth my ears bewitch me with whispers of Xanadu? The soundtrack to my dreams grows and grows as you produce more heavenly sounds. I love you both. You rule EVERY school.

  16. tobazzah says:

  24. Saakki says:

    Just wanted to drop by and say that I’ve been a fan you from since the Melody A.M came out and seen you live two times here in Finland. Last time this summer at Flow. You keep impressing me and hopefully we will some day hear you earlier material too ( before the Melody A.M ). Can’t wait for your next release! Gotta visit Norway someday too. Seems like a lovely place to reside. Thanks for these free tracks too.

  25. Smart Apple says:

    YES! Thank you! Can’t wait to hear what you’ve been working on :D

  26. AncientSkyman says:

    As always, you two make wonderful music. Synchronicity as your music has captured me over the past few days and here you are with more magik. Thanks for the gifts, they were well received.

    Tusen takk for at dere gjorde “Shores of Easy” tilgjengelig. Jeg vil lytte på den i bilen på vei ned til LA helgen 22 Oktober. Skal på det fantastiske bilshowet “Car Classics 2011″ på Art Center i Pasadena, vurderer nå å utvide helgen til å inkludere et annet fantastisk show i Hollywood Bowl samme helg..

  62. Jitta138 says:

    Tack såååååååå…(osv) mycket.
    Sånt här måste man älska ^^

  67. LIN says:

    I just can’t get ‘Shores of Easy’ out of my head. Even though it’s 13 min it feels short.. I just want it to continue for ever. Such a great vibe in it and the beats… It’s been on repeat for days now. Also you’ve made ‘In This Shirt’ into a jewel beyond imagination. I love the whole spectrum of variation… full rainbow. Thanks:)

  68. ramoseven says:

    Hej Royksopp, awesome tunes and downloads – “In this shirt” is great!

    I’ve been a big fan since the first album.

    Peace and love from Los Angeles.

  70. pballasiotes says:

  72. Larie says:

    Also, you just gave me a track of 14 minutes. I could not thank you enough.

  73. dreecnai says:

    I was kinda freakin out (positive way) seeing new free tracks
    since no track of the months were posted for a long while…

  74. bighc says:

    It would be great if you also could put these “goodies” available on Spotify… If possible?

  75. AFKAN says:

    Excellent tunes and both being played heavily on my MP3 player.

    hi torbjorn & svein! i’m waiting for you all in Jakarta, Indonesia. i’m so glad to hear if you’ll come to my country on 8 February 2012. i’m already buy the ticket so i’m just waiting!! :*

  82. wavefoam says:

    love you guys. love ur music. love your existence.

  83. Vieon says:

    Hi guys! Absolutely wonderful stuff, I’m pretty sure that your remix of In This Shirt is one of the best remixes you’ve ever done – that and the mixes of Electric Counterpoint maybe?

    I do have a polite request though – Sparks is one of my very favourite songs of all time. Would it be possible to make the original acapella vocals only version available so we could have a go ourselves at remixing it?

    Cheers once again for the awesome music!

    Matt (from the UK, but I saw your show in Oslo 2010 at Akershus Festning – amazing show! Please come play in the UK more often =])

  84. linkwize says:

    Might have thought that, especially after a trip downunder, there might be something new emanating from Señor B + B, like maybe some sign of an afterlife but no we are in limbo post ‘Senior’. Surely that would be a sad way to go out?

  85. Alex_Cruceru says:

    We Want More New Pieces Of Royksopp Art, like NOW! :))

  86. Mr.Medina says:

    You guys are Pure Musical Genius. I mean that in the most sincere way.
    Respect.

  87. Alex_Cruceru says:

    I am Royksoppoholic !! I still want mooooooooooore! I am a Royksopp junie! :) I am Royksoppoholic !!!

  88. saus says:

    Fantastisk, gleder meg til til neste album.

  89. Guill says:

    Still no sign of a lossless copy of:

    Remind Me (Tom Middleton’s Cosmos Dub)
    Poor Leno (Sander Kleinenberg’s Northern Beach Dub)
    Sparks (Roni Size Instrumental)

    It is so easy to get those files on a computer and upload them for us.
    C’mon mister!

  90. Guill says:

    Loved Shores Of Easy very mellow & atmospheric.

  91. Senor A says:

    @Guill

    No disrespect player, but what makes you think they should be urgently scrambling through their files to give us (and you in particular) 10 year old, officially released remixes of tracks that we’re all familiar with? OTHER artists’ remixes at that!

    Bro, those songs are easily tracked down. They aren’t hard to find. Support RYXP and buy them from iTunes or somewhere else. Does that sound possible?

    What’s cool about TOTM is the opportunity to listen to never-before-heard songs from the guys. Songs and edits you can only find here. We wouldn’t want to waste an already rare TOTM event on an old Tom Middleton remix, would we?!? :(

    Not trying to jump all over you about it, but I just had to say something after seeing so many of your posts asking for the same thing! ;-)

    BTW, you do know Röyksopp is a duo correct? Probably just a typo when you addressed them as “Mister”…

    Speaking of TOTM! What happened to you guys?? Hopefully you’re brewing up something smooth & tasty! ;-) We need some new summer-time hot tracks from you gentlemen asap! I need to cleanse the palette of all the mediocre dubstep that’s infiltrating!! :-)

  92. Guill says:

    To Senor A,

    The tracks I’ve mentioned were not available on a digital media officially.only Sparks (Roni Size Instrumental) was officially released on a 12″.
    In our days of digital downloads it’s very easy to upload them on any store that sells lossless formtas.I’ll be happy to buy them.
    Wall Of Sound is not interested in back catalog.I’ve contacted them several times.
    I want quality files not mp3′s at 128kbps or AAC at 256 (iTunes).
    I buy my music in physical format (CD/12″) and digital as well (FLAC/AIFF) (Tricky Tricky Remixes) (Forsaken Cowboy) and several others till I got my hands on the CDr’s.

    You don’t have to tell me to support Röyksopp because I buy all their material.

    Guill

  93. pballasiotes says:

    Royksopp, you are the best!

  94. bce says:

    It’s been a year since your last TOTM, don’t you guys think it’s time for a new one?? :)

  95. saus says:

    I agree with bce

  96. linkwize says:

    Not much point to a social media space without sociability nor any new media… Becomes a vacuous absence…
    (sigh)

  97. kekropos says:

    thanks a lot for these 2 beautiful songs. Great great music. I adore your music. I do hope you’ll come someday in Munich, Germany for a concert. friendly yours !!!

  98. Guill says:

    Apparently touring takes a lot of time and is also where the $$$ is these days.
    No time left for anything else don’t you think LINKWISE?

  99. Alex_Cruceru says:
