So… Regarding the release of Senior. As you correctly have noted, we promised you a release this April. We would like to start by apologizing for any false expectations this statement created. We love you, and we would never purposely misinform you. You see, instead of the release actually happening in April, a lot of other things happened.
Long story short, the toppling of the record industry finally rippled its way into our universe. As you all know, record companies have been having an “interesting” time lately, to say the least. Because of this, to ensure the best possible release scenario for Senior, we have gone through many changes on exactly who we’re releasing it with.
But now it’s all come together.
The album will be released at the end of August. And, even better, for those of you who live in places records are not released on time (and for everyone else too), we will also make the album available here on this website!
All in all, even though the extra wait is boring/ bad/ painful, this should be seen as good news. Senior is a very special release to us, and we would never release it without making sure it was in the best possible hands, when it comes to record companies and distribution. In a way, it’s almost fitting that it being a truly unique album, it would have a difficult start in life.
Best, Señor B + Señor B

Have you ever heard of… Steve Reich, the composer? Why, of course you have! Well, for some reason unknown to us, we have been experiencing an inexplicable urge to make an edit of one of his tracks, called Electric Counterpoint: III. Fast.

Ok people, we promised you yet another track of the month and here it is! This time around you can get your hands on one of the many edits / unauthorized remixes that we’ve done. This particular track is an enticing instrumental which contains a sample from the song “De Ushuaia a La Quiaca” by Gustavo Santaolalla. As with all edits/reworks we do, this edit has been done with utmost respect for the original composer, and is furthermore a completely non-profit thing – done purely for the love of music.

“Senior” is now finished. We know we promised to release it towards the end of 2009, but due to certain factors that we cannot control, the completion of the album has been delayed. Until now that is. We do not know the exact releasedate yet, but we hope to get it out some time in April this year (…obviously).
…Aaaand we would also like to introduce our new concept called “Track Of The Month” – a service (provided by us) where fans can get their hands on some free, unreleased & exclusive Röyksopp material.
For more info regarding “Track Of The Month”; read journal-entry called “Look what we found…” (just below this post).
