Robyn unleashed her album title track, “Honey.”
The electro-tinged bedroom banger is officially available to stream, and it’s gorgeous.
On it, Robyn entices a SO to let her in, because she’s got that sweet, sweet honey. Oh my!
“No, you’re not gonna get what you need / But baby, I have what you want,” she sings over an intoxicating beat and pulsating production.
“Come get your honey, / And the waves come in, and they’re golden / But down in the deep, the honey is sweeter.”
“It’s not produced or written as a normal pop song,” Robyn said in a statement. “It is totally based on this idea of club music. When you’re listening to club music, there’s no reward. The reward isn’t, ‘Oh, here’s the chorus, here’s the lyric that makes sense.’ You have to enjoy what it is. You have to enjoy that there’s no conclusion.”
Glug glug glug.

Robyn Shares The ‘Honey’ Tracklist
The pop star has been hard at work on her personal new music for quite some time. The singer returned last month with her lead single, “Missing U,” a twinkly, electro-synth pop bop. It’ll land on her forthcoming record out October 26.
It’s worth mentioning Robyn premiered the album title track in an episode of Girls in March of 2017.
“I’m on the set for my first music video for this album, and I just wanted to tell you in person that it’s going to be out really soon,” Robyn said in a video message to fans. “It’s called Honey and it will be released on the 26th of October, and I really can’t wait for you to hear it!
She added: “It’s a personal album and there’s so many things that have happened throughout making it that it just really hard for me to explain it in one go. I think maybe the best way is for your to listen to it. I’m so happy that it’s finally done.”
First Sweetener, now Honey… pop music is giving me so many cavities.

This is the track list for the album. I’ve had it ready it ready for months, so strange how it came together even before or the songs were finished. Never had that happen before; more or less in the order that I wrote them. pic.twitter.com/aJ4cppDZKM
