Robyn follows up her self-titled Grammy-nominated album, which included the #1 UK single “With Every Heartbeat,” with a triple album beginning with Body Talk Pt 1, dropping today. It picks up where Robyn left off with the emphasis on the sweeping, emotional dance tracks and the biting, quirky rap-pop with which she made her name. Though only eight songs long, it takes you from techno to dancehall to acoustic ballads and nostalgic Swedish folk songs in one seamless journey, and still sounds undeniably like a Robyn record. Check out the video for Robyn’s single, “Dancing On My Own.”
