Röyksopp – Running To The Sea feat. Susanne Sundfør
The above performance of Running To The Sea and Ice Machine aired on Lydverket on 28th November on NRK2.
Initially, we thought about performing a pure cover version, but the chemistry and vibes between the three of us was out of the ordinary, which led us to put together a new track from scratch. The song Running To The Sea was written and recorded in two days, just in time for the TV-performance.
Susanne possesses a unique combination of distinctiveness and international talent, unique far beyond the borders of Norway. In addition, she has insightful knowledge on cooking inside a pit dug out of the ground.
Susanne delivered gold on her first vocal take. We still asked her to do another 58 though. These were never used, however, having these unused vocal takes available created an atmosphere of luxury in the studio.”
Running To The Sea is available to download on the Röyksopp store here.
It is also available to buy and stream in Norway at these stores:
